Change

LyricsWhat I love most about rivers is

You can’t step in the same river twice

The water’s always changing, always flowing

But people, I guess, can’t live like that

We all must pay a price

To be safe, we lose our chance of ever knowing

What’s around the river bend

Waiting just around the river bend

I look once more just around the river bend

Beyond the shore where the gulls fly free

Don’t know what for what I dream the day might send

Just around the river bend for me, coming for me

I feel it there beyond those trees

Or right behind these waterfalls

Can I ignore that sound of distant drumming?

For a handsome sturdy husband who builds handsome sturdy walls

And never dreams that something might be coming?

Just around the river bend

Just around the river bend

I look once more just around the river bend

Beyond the shore somewhere past the sea

Don’t know what for why do all my dreams extend

Just around the river bend, just around the river bend

Should I choose the smoothest course

Steady as the beating drum? Should I marry Kocoum?

Is all my dreaming at an end?

Or do you still wait for me, dream giver

Just around the river bend?
