  • There's a river in
    Evening ember glow
    And you're wishing you could see
    How far it flows
    Rolling on to an endless sea
    You'd be well on your way
    If you could only set sail.

    But dreams can drift away
    And sails can fill with doubt
    Where's your vision
    If the embers flicker out?
    Don't let it slip from view

    The horizons are waiting
    Your river is fading

    So keep the fire burning tonight
    See just what comes into sight
    Don't take forever
    Take it through the night

    And believe the sun
    Will rise with the dawn
    That's all you need to go on
    But for tonight
    Just keep the fire burning bright

    I will never need to ask
    "What have I done?"
    Comes a moment when it's clear
    There's only one.
    Oh, whatever you need of me
    I've made up my mind
    I'll give you more than you've asked for

    And there are those who can foresee
    Where we will go
    All the future...
    I don't really want to know
    Only that you'll be here with me.

    While the embers still glow
    We'll be safe till tomorrow. Writer/s: EVA LOGGINS, KENNY LOGGINS
