Like a River, We Will Flow

Updated on April 14, 2018

If you had the time to lose,

An open mind and time to choose,

Would you care to take a look,

Or can you read me like a book.

Can I tempt you come with me,

Be devil-may-care fulfil your dream,

If I said I'd take you there,

Would you go would you be scared.

Like a wolf in sheep's clothing you try to hide your sins,

That you've done wrong with many things,

And I know where you belong,

But you hide your tears with a happy song.

Make you an offer you can't refuse,

You've only got your soul to lose,

So relax and let yourself go,

I'll take you where the four winds blow.

Like the eagle and the dove,

Fly so high on wings above,

When all you see can bring you sadness,

Above the tumultuous sea of madness.

Like a river we will flow,

On towards the salty sea we go,

Your intuition is the voice that's calling,

Still the breeze your heart is falling.

Out in the dark there burns a dream,

To find the unknown world you've never seen,

From the coast of gold across the seven seas,

I'm traveling far and wide but now it seems.

I'm just a stranger to myself,

And the things I do isn't me but someone else,

Out on the street someone's crying,

Alone in the night maybe someone's dying.

I've reached the point of no return,

Is there something I've missed and need to learn,

I feel myself falling back to earth,

Towards the sea and my rebirth.
