A rather simple hard rocker. Who says it has to be complicated?

Ironically, after I wrote this song in the late 90's, I fell into a songwriting drought that lasted quite a while. Hmm...

River Rise

River Rise

 

The river is on the rise

In her eyes I see her sweep away a lifetime in a day

Nature has a way of healing

Letting life make something new

Oh I, oh I, oh I, I’m new

 

Been running for higher ground

Found my sanctuary disappearing

Drowned with the weight of the world

Take me downstream let me swim in your tide

Take me up let me kiss the sky

Oh I, oh I, oh I, I’m alive

 

Rise, river rise, river rise

No turning back the changing time

Rise, river rise, river rise

You say you want me, do you

Well I want you too

Rise, river rise

 

Lie in the wake of the flood

Fill my soul renew my spirit take control of my heart

I never saw the sun so clearly

I never met the moon so high

So high

 

Rise, river rise, river rise

No turning back the changing time

Rise, river rise, river rise

You say you want me, do you

Well I want you too

Rise, river rise
