lyrics

Intro G
Verse 1
G C G
Have you taken any water? It would surely do you well.
G C G
Mind the birds they are forsaken. But they promised not to tell.
G C G
And I know there is a river and it feeds from way up high.
G C G
Water colder than the Heaven, that you feared most of your life.

Chorus
D D/F# C G
It’s waiting there a place that hides behind your eyes.
D D/F# C G
A brush will flow and paint the river ‘neath the sky.

Verse 2

Well the Bicycles are flowing down the grassy river side.
And the kids they look for treasure, that no one thinks to hide.
And the dogs defend the backyard, till the old man calls them down.
While the lady in the garden, lifts a smile up to the sky.

Chorus

Verse 3

Now a boy looks cross the river, at a girl who shines so bright.
And he wades out to the middle, where he’s spent most of his life.
While the girl swims out to meet him, and he takes her by the hand.
And they kiss for their tomorrows, as the water makes them strong.
