Riversong Lyrics

I laid down by the river's edge
I laid down wondering where it led
I laid down by the river's edge
and I woke up in a river bed

There were flowers in my hair
river flowers floating everywhere
and all the fishes came and kissed my feet
dear old fishes, they said to me

They said "Oh, we could love you,
but we are not yet what you want"
because "Oh, anyone could love you,
you've got to find where you belong"

All my needles, they were gone so fast
not a needle left on a branch
I grew weaker
and the river strong
I said "Hey fishes"
but the fish were gone

Now the boulders
I know they heard me cry
but they were stone-faced
and they stood aside
so I went on at the river's pace
with my eyes closed, I thought I heard them say

They said "Oh, we could love you,
but we are not yet what you want"
because "Oh, we would only crush you,
you've got to find where you belong"

How does it feel
to be so certain
without question
of your purpose,
your position,
of your place,
of your home ?
of your place
of your home

You cannot catch the river though
it makes you think you can
it trickles through your fingers
while you hold it in your hands
just like I am
just like I am
just like I am
just like I am
