The River

(Music:  "The River" by Garth Brooks)

 

 

 

You know a dream is like a river

Ever changin’ as it flows

And a dreamer’s just a vessel

That must follow where it goes.

Trying to learn from what’s behind you

And never knowing what’s in store

Makes each day a constant battle

Just you stay between the shores.

 

I will sail my vessel

‘Til the river runs dry

Like a bird upon the wind

These waters are my sky.

I’ll never reach my destination

If I never try

So I will sail my vessel

‘Til the river runs dry.

 

Too many times we stand aside

And let the waters slip away

‘Til what we put off ‘til tomorrow

Has now become today.

So don’t you sit upon the shoreline

And say you’re satisfied

Choose to chance the rapids

And dare to dance the tide.

 

And there’s bound to be rough waters

And I know I’ll take some falls

But with the good Lord as my captain

I can make it through them all.
