Let the River do the Running

lyrics

The horse is still in its corral
The swallow pauses on the roof
February’s snow might not ever melt this year
Love will have to find its own proof
We can laugh or cry about time
How it moves too fast how slow it bends
From one angle it looks hopeless
From the other heaven sent

Let the river do the running
Let the river take its course
Let the river rage and calm
Gravity times force

I'm still finding my way toward center
Move past this idea of something more
Some days you know I feel five years old
Crying over that fake teapot that wouldn't pour
No this isn’t child's play
Gravity can bring us together or tear us apart
Only we can decide
To turn toward an open heart

Let the river do the running
Let the river take its course
Let the river rage and calm
Gravity times force

Your heart has all the answers
Just like the earth has all the water it will ever need
The weight of it all can bring us down
Or give us the ground we need
