You'd have floated on by had I hadn't said hi
As one to another, remind me not to sigh
There's a moment of beauty always passing away
And I'd live for tomorrow if not for today
You'll prepare for the waters as I'd write a song
Do you have a river to raft on?

All chance has a dream and it follows the wind
Whipped up from the ground, it could never stay pinned
I'm short of breath, hoarse, and pulled into a save
And things always get better, though that was a close shave :-)
You'll prepare for the waters as I'd write a song
Do you have a river to raft on?

Sound has a way of bringing peace to a mind
All that was once and all that's in kind
Resolutions are made by the soft candlelight
And no matter how hard to think, it's all alright

I'd thought of a place where the air tastes like sun
The winters aren't rough, and the summers are fun
The quest for utopia is everyone's thing
And into the night we'd collapse in and sing
You'll prepare for the waters as I'd write a song
Do you have a river to raft on?

    General CommentIt took away all the uncomfortableness and we felt mighty good over it, because it would a been a miserable business to have any unfriendliness on the raft; for what you want, above all things, on a raft, is for everybody to be satisfied, and feel right and kind towards the others."
