Story

‘The River’ metaphorically speaks of an internal journey and the complex emotions regarding aging, the search for ones' true purpose and hope.
We are of the the earth and water, and intrinsically connected to nature and it's perfect cycles.
It takes a conscious decision to care for our natural world, as we would ourselves and all we hold precious and love.

Lyrics

The River

I thought I was crazy
I realized I was alive
My mind’s like a spiraling shell on the changing tide
and I’m just waiting here for the moon to rise

I was born as a raindrop in a storming October sky
and down below me the land was eternally dry
and I’m just waiting for the right time to fall down

I am the river that flows by your door
when your praying for something
and you get so much more
oh I am, I am your flood

I am the tear that falls from your eyes
when your feeling the pain and you don’t know why
oh I am, I am crying

I am the water that runs through your veins
I am that feeling when your cold and insane
I am the winter that lives in your bones
oh I am the longing you knew me when I wasn’t so old

I am the rainbow that hides in the clouds
when the thunder comes out and the sun is loud
Oh I am, I am your hope

I am the wine that flows through your blood
I am the longing we all know of
I am the wind that blows through the trees
Oh I am the river,
Please don’t forget me
