The River Has To Flow
©Jeffrey C. Ashbaker 10-2014

Back when the river was frozen
They use say goodness had chose him
And he use to bury the hate
Carry that weight down the road
Now that he's losing his hair
They say that he just doesn't care
It's just a matter of time
Until he loses his mind
Don't you know
Yeah, the river has to flow
--- Chorus ---
So won't you come when you like
Oh, just come as you are
You know there's not very far left to go
To where the river has flow
When days were never-ending
And our hearts were still pretending
She use to shine through the night
Shine with a light from above
Now that she's losing her spark
They say her twinkle's gone dark
It's true that she's getting older
But her heart can still hold her
Even as the sunlight sinks below
-Repeat Chorus-
From delta to ocean, there's a change in emotion
As the waters wash you clean and the truth becomes the dream
So it seems
-Solo Intro Break-
-Repeat Chorus--Tag Last Line -
