The River Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
So deep in the water
Sleep, dark as the night
Somehow it seems it was all another dream
Soon dissolved in the light.
Verse 2
Oh, we were by the waterline.
Verse 3
Vague, the song of the night.
Verse 4
Innocent to all the peasant gods with you,
So, we drink to be renewed.
Verse 5
On the long, deep river
Where the moorhens cry
As the first sun quivers in the open sky,
Oh, she came down the river.
Verse 6
Soon, all the leaves were still.
Verse 7
The current was strong and the river was so long.
Verse 8
So, we drink to be renewed.
Verse 9
In the long cool evening,
Where the peacocks shiver
And the boat starts down the silver river way
Verse 10
I remember you saying,
As her deep eyes opened,
In the first light seeing her,
Here is someone new.
