lyrics

Long grey blade of a river, look at all the trouble we're in.
Everyone seems to know where we lead and where we've been.
I came and found you when I was young on the loving words of a ghost.
He pointed out at the great wide open and said, "There she rolls."
You were dry and I was weak, but we're both much stronger now.
We both know that' just a show for the people, why don't we lay it down.
Why don't we lay it down.

And the long grey pull of the ocean is draggin' us out with a song.
Callin' out to all the little ones, singin', "Brothers it won't be long".
And in the waves I can recognize the ways I am much like you.
Human hearts can be sailed upon but they can never be understood.

Long grey blade of a river I will say goodbye from the hill.
I would say that I won't see you again, but I know I will.
And you won't say what I know you want, but I know that it's on your mind.
Even a river needs a mother's love from time to time.
And you won't say what I know you want, but I know that it's on your mind.
Even a river needs a mother's love from time to time.
From time to time.
