Where The River Flows

Let the river of life take me wherever it will flow

Who knows which way destiny will blow?

Everything is written and we’re just passengers of fate

But step by step we go, towards the future we await


Let the tides take me where they will

And wash me up on some distant land

Near or far, for me it doesn’t matter

Just send me companions who will hold out their hand


Send me a ship and I’ll sail her wherever she cares to go

I’ve sailed in heavy weather and I’ve sailed in calmer seas

And all I really need is love and affection

And a breath in my sails from a gentle sea breeze


Life cannot hurt me whatever sadness she may bring

For every sadness passes and gives way to spring

Fate leads the way to the other side of life

And when death claims us, only then we’ll see the light.


So for now we’ll carry on with the journey of life

And when a time of sadness come, write it into words

Cut them out and turn them round

and write a happier verse
