Rise up before the dawn does
Dirty hands and faces
The symbol of a day not wasted
I wait for midday
I dip my hands into the water
Splash a face just like my mother’s

You've been so content
To stay while everything is rushing by
When I’ve begged you’ve said
They’re the water we’re the riverstone

You hold me so tightly
I've been first in line for every lesson
You the same for each confession
I know it’s hard to let go
You've painted pictures full of danger
How could this be any safer

You've been so content
To stay while everything is rushing by
When I dream you remind me
They’re the water we’re the riverstone

I hope I can learn to love the way that you love me
I know it takes a special heart
When the current comes to lift me comes to scratch me
Never think that I won’t feel your hands when we’re apart
Never think that I won’t hear your voice when it’s dark

You've been so content to stay while everything is rushing by
As I leave you remind me
They’re the water we’re the riverstone
