The sun floats down to the river’s edge,
And the leaves are all clapping
up above my head,
The stones make me slip but I won’t get wet,
And I know that the pike hasn’t seen me yet

I’m a long long way behind you,
but I’ve never been out this far
And the sound of the river running,
is the sound of a breaking heart
La la la la la-la-la-la la la
La la la la la-la-la-la la la
Make me strong, before I fall

I’m holding a branch as I make my way
But there’s not much left I don’t think it’s safe
It snaps from my hand but my balance stays
My hands turn to wings and I fly away

I see your face on the river bead
I can hear your voice as the rapids spread
I feel your love as the river turns red
And I know that I’m not ready yet
