River River

Rivers give life, take lives and everything in between. Calm and soothing at the source, they can cleanse or destroy everything that flows within her, until she reaches the point whre she dissolves into the sea. Much like ourselves. We are like rivers, meandering through life until we reach the larger space in which our essence flows. And, whatever we try to hide in our depths (and cracks, pun intended), the River brings that what needs to be seen to the surface. At the right moment.

Lyrics & Music: N.J. Sardjoe

From the water you have the best view
Of the world
Of the shore
You flow with her
She guides you up and down
She flows
Valley low
Into the great wide open of the ocean

River river how can I feel
That this current that’s beneath is real
River river you know so well
All the lives that came to you to dwell

And you go while you flow
Past the islands that we know
And you bleed just like me
From all the heartaches that we drowned in the depths and cracks
All the love that washed away and never comes back

You run deep
A trail of hope within the fear
Oh so deep
Sometimes it grows
I wish it was steady as it flows
Valley low
Until the ocean takes it back

And you go
While you flow
Past the islands that we know
And you bleed just like me
To feel
To feel

And you go
While you flow
Past the islands that we’ve known
And you bleed just like me
From all the heartaches that we drowned in the depths and cracks
All the love we washed away and never comes back
