shed your oversize clothes
feel the dirt between your toes
and walk to the river, my boy

be not a man, with your head in your hands
but a boy by the river once more

i'm taking the nights, and leaving the days
because sometimes the light's just too tame

be not a man, with your head in your hands
but a boy by the river once more

we had plans, there's no need to forget them
we're still playing in time

be not a man, with your head in your hands
but a boy by the river once more

burn your worries and shoot for the stars
just don't anchor your spirit or deafen your heart
because some ships will sail forever and ever
and ever and ever to roam

shed your oversize clothes
feel the dirt between your toes
and walk to the river, my boy

be not a man, with your head in your hands
but a boy by the river once more
but a boy by the river once more
but a boy by the river once more
