lyrics

Long grey blade of a river, look at all the trouble we're in. Everyone seems to know where we lead and where we've been. I came and found you when I was young on the loving words of a ghost. He pointed out at the great wide open and said, "There she rolls." You were dry and I was weak, but we're both much stronger now. We both know that' just a show for the people, why don't we lay it down. Why don't we lay it down. And the long grey pull of the ocean is draggin' us out with a song. Callin' out to all the little ones, singin', "Brothers it won't be long". And in the waves I can recognize the ways I am much like you. Human hearts can be sailed upon but they can never be understood. Long grey blade of a river I will say goodbye from the hill. I would say that I won't see you again, but I know I will. And you won't say what I know you want, but I know that it's on your mind. Even a river needs a mother's love from time to time. And you won't say what I know you want, but I know that it's on your mind. Even a river needs a mother's love from time to time. From time to time.
