River Lyrics

Artist: Mary Chapin Carpenter
Album: Between Here And Gone

River full of stones when there's no rain
River full and rushing when the clouds let loose again
River every season like a prayer
We're standing in the shallows making crosses in the air

Chorus:
Want to build the strongest bridge
Want to love you the best I can
Feel no fear upon the edge
Here's my heart, baby take my hand

River like a poem to the trees
River telling stories to the rushes and the leaves
River every season like a vow
We're standing in the shallows wondering who will save us

Want to build the strongest bridge
Want to love you the best I can
Feel no fear upon the edge
Here's my heart, baby take my hand

Instrumental Chorus

River from the currents to the pools
River turning kinder turning suddenly too cruel
River every season like a dream
We're standing in the shallows wading in to wash us clean

Want to build the strongest bridge
Want to love you the best I can
Feel no fear upon the edge
Here's my heart, baby take my hand

Want to build the strongest bridge
Want to love you the best I can
Feel no fear upon the edge
Here's my heart, baby take my hand

Want to hold you close to me, never fail you, never falter
Seeing all that love can see,
reflecting on the water...
