Lyrics

Wide is the river, the river runs deep
Long is the river and it never sleeps
It flows from my soul, it runs through my head
It dances in my mind, and it sleeps in my bed
When I wake up the current is strong
It takes me through the morning, all day long
Like an old piece of driftwood floating on top
Of this crazy old river, I can never get off
Chorus:
Take me in your waters
Take me in your arms
Lay me down upon your willows
Lay me down in your arms
Your banks are running over with the springtime thaw
In the summer you’re all dried up and slowed to a crawl
When the golden leaves of autumn fall, you’re inside your banks
And all is like it should be, and we all give thanks
Chorus
Wide is the river, the river runs deep
Long is the river and it never sleeps
It flows from my soul, it runs through my head
It dances in my mind, and it sleeps in my bed
It runs through my head
It sleeps in my bed
It runs through my head
