RIVER OF LOVE

There's a river of love that runs through all times
There's a river of fear that flows through our lives
It starts when a heart is broken in two
By the thief of belief in anything that's true
There's a river of love that runs through all times

There's a river of love that runs through all times
There's a river of tears that floods through our eyes
We fight through the night for freedom as it fades
Into the jail where we fail every time we make a break
But there's a river of love that runs through all times

I had to run before I knew how to crawl
The first step was hard but I've had trouble with them all
The night grows darker, the day grows dim
And I know that I never will see you again
And I almost made you happy

There's a river of love that runs through all times
There's a river of fire that burns with no light
Its flame is the pain of dreams gone up in smoke
From the lies we're denying, we breathe until we choke
But there's a river of love that runs through all times

There's a river of love that runs through all times
