River, river while you go racing by
There's a thousand little questions in my mind
River, river with hemlocks by your side
Do you ever get the feeling that you're tired?
And would you tell me if you did?

River, river I met you long ago
But I set out 'cause I had something to prove
River, river I'm back here on your shores
And I know that there is nothing left to lose
So won't you please whisper the truth.

(Chorus)
'Cause there's a lot here in my soul that I don't know
And I may never ever know
I look at you - you let it go
You make it look so easy

(Chorus)

River, river please show me how to dance
With the many things I'll never understand
River, river please teach me about song
Making music as the currents roll along.
As the currents sing along.

(Chorus) (x2)

You make it look so easy (x3)

    General CommentHe's singing about how a river continues to flow, no matter what's going on. He wishes life was that easy and wants to be able to let things go as easily as a river could.
