i stood on the banks of the au train in northern michigan
as mayflies dipped down like angels over the water
god forbid i was a little drunk
god forbid i was singing to myself
as the wind pushed harmonies through the willow that i stood under

[i loved you, elena]

at some point the creek swept me out from my feet
but i hear the water's clearer the farther you get downstream
now i don't know what i've been told
but as river bends so does your soul
i hear home is where you make it
so i kept on swimming

[i loved you, elena]

late that night the reflection of the moon on the water
looked like a million tiny shards of glass
but then the river started rumbling
as I washed on down a waterfall
i held my breath and thought that this is the end

but then as the sand cleared i saw a saw a familiar face
and her dark hair, which was so filled with secrets, said boy don't be afraid
i reached out to her and pleaded, take me with you
then, as she disappeared downstream she whispered, the river always runs through

[i loved you, elena]
