1. Black River

From the recording Black River


A shimmering river
in a silver night
dances at the moon
Romance and Rye
of thumb tucked twine
Long scents and empty rooms

Long black river
making its rivers run
Its the sweet revenge
of the shadows friend
You know there's nothin' new
nothin' new under the sun

Now the moon is just a sliver
it's so strange to see the river
in a different light
Road to my past
is a bridge that collapsed
Same man can't cross
the same river twice

Harder to stand still
then it is to stay current
Hold on to who you are
let go of who you weren't
And after all has come to pass
the perspective that I've learned
Is that nothing in this world
can ever truly be returned
