River of Love

Album: The Turning (1987)
  • There's a river of love that runs through all times
    There's a river of grief that floods through our loves
    It starts when a heart is broken into
    By the thief of belief in anything that's true
    But there's a river of love that runs through all time

    There's a river of love that runs through all time
    There's a river of tears that flows through our eyes
    We fight through the night for freedom as it fades
    Into a jail where we fail everytime we make a break
    But there's a river of love that runs through all time

    I had to run before I knew how to crawl
    The first step was hard but I have had trouble with them all
    But now the night grows darker and the day grows dim
    'Cause I know I never will see you again
    And I almost made you happy

    There's a river of love that runs through all time
    There's a river of fire that burns with no light
    The flame is the pain of dreams gone up in smoke
    From the lies we deny and breathe until we choke
    There's a river of love that runs through all time Writer/s: T-Bone Burnett
