Would you take me to the river,
To the stream that holds my dreams
And let its gleaming waters drown out
All the sores of memory?

Would you raise me towards the sky
And bring the Sun and Moon down nearer;
Send me swimming out in space
So that the stars I may see clearer?

And let the silence of a winter night
Fill with cricketsongs of summer
And the glow of hazy, pale moonlight
Wake dreamers from their slumber

Let them come out here to dance with me
For I can never sleep
And let their dreams become realities
So that young we'll always be

And would you take me to the river,
To the stream that never ceases;
Let my worries shatter on the ground
And ne'er pick up the pieces?
