lyrics

Sit and talk with me awhile
Of fond memories faint and far
Lets recall my familiar friend
How much we love each other

The way love starts and how it grows
So often an abandoned road
As changes come and seasons roll
Lets hold to one another

First a crystal mountain stream
Running through the woods with ease
The world’s cares seem far away
And every sound is like a song

But like that stream love wants to grow
Obstacles clutter its flow
The land turns steep and the sun seems low
We’re forced into the canyons throw
The river wants to reverse
To clamber uphill to its birth
But it can’t return, so lovers learn
Now that little stream is a deep strong force

I watch people coming and going
How they’re reacting, releasing, withdrawing
And from what I can tell
Love’s not a feeling
We all wake up with in the morning
I believe we have to choose
Make those vows each day anew
To give yourself to me and myself to you

And like that stream our love will grow
Though obstacles clutter its flow
The land turns steep and the sun seems low
We’re forced into the canyons throw
The river wants to reverse
To clamber uphill to its birth
But it can’t return, so we will learn
Now that little stream is a deep strong force

So sit and talk with me awhile
Of a future we can’t plan
The people we’ll meet
Oh the places we’ll see
And who we dream we will become
And that river will keep on rolling
Rolling wild and free
Don’t know where we’re going
But we’re heading towards the sea
Said we don’t know where we’re going
But we’re heading towards the sea

So, river roll, river roll on

Roll on wild and free
River roll, river roll on
Roll on to the sea
Said, river roll, river roll on
Rolling wild and free
Oh river roll, river roll on
Roll on to the sea
River roll on to the sea
River roll on to the sea
