“The River” – Geoffrey Oreyama

Paint me a picture of a river
and let it flow
just let it flow
it will flow and wash away our differences
and love will grow

You have the power to deliver
so let it flow
When I dip my hand into your water
I feel your soul

I’ll do the fire by your river of melted stone
you can drink the silver of my moonlight
as our fire burns
the fire burns

I’ll slide inside your silent water
like polished stone
then break the surface with a shiver
while the river flows

Paint me a picture of the river
and let it flow
let it flow
all across the deserts and the mountains
we’ll let it go
let it go
