What 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 in 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 Kokoum?
Is all my dreaming at an end?
Or do you still wait for me, dream-giver, just around the river bend?
