... run river

Run, run river.
Carry me to my home in the ocean,
Carry me away

I know I have a home
Somewhere far and removed
Like the stars that make you feel
Like you got friends.

Stars will make you feel like you got friends.

Follow the empty valley
Past the hills
To the marshes of the estuary,
Calm and peaceful river.

In the light of the moon
With the river I do run
In the hope that one day
I will dive
Beneath the ocean,

And that this river will forever run.
