"Run River Run" as written by Alex Hwang, John Chong, Sally Kang, Jennifer Rim, Daniel Chae and Joseph Chun....
Run river run
Mother's calling heavy the sun
She's tired from the storm, which is from the norm
Standing at the gate, so quiet, unafraid

But one has come
One has come

Run river run
I hear your father's gun
He's wary from the road, the wolves and the crows
Kept him at the gates with hands full of praise

But one has come
One has one

Rushing like a spirit from a wineskin bag
Settled by your sister like it's never going back
Mother's crying out with a different kind of sadness
Sam can't shoot between a promise and a habit

Run river run
Out of dreams, into the sun
Wake river wake
There's fire coursing through your blood
There's gold in your hair, the silver line is
I know that they're scared, oh they're rushing to the wind

But you won't let 'em in
No, you won't let 'em in

Rushing like a spirit from a wineskin bag
Settle by your sister with your heart in her hands
There's love in your words, she'll learn to sew
I hear her laughing, and it sounds

It sounds like
Home
It sounds like
Home
It sounds like
Home
It sounds like
Home

Rushing like a spirit from a wineskin bag
Settle by your sister with your heart in her hands
There's love in your words, she'll learn to sew
I hear her laughing, and it sounds

It sounds like
Home
It sounds like
Home
It sounds like
Home
It sounds like
Home
