  • Lyrics
  • I'm a new pair of eyes
    Every time I am born
    An original mind
    Because I just died

    And I'm scanning the horizon for someone recognizing
    That I might have been queen
    For every sun that sets there is a new one dawning
    For every empire crushed there is a brand new nation

    Let the waters rise
    I've ridden each tide
    From the gates of the city
    Where the first born died

    And I might have been queen
    I remember the girl in the fields with no name
    She had a love
    Oh but the river won't stop for me
    No the river won't stop for me

    I'm a new pair of eyes
    An original mind
    With my senses of old
    And the heart of a giant

    And I'm searching through the wreckage
    For some great recollection
    That I might have been queen

    For every sage that falls
    There's an ancient child

    And I might have been queen
    I remember the girl in the fields with no name
    She had a love
    Oh but the river won't stop for me
    No the river won't stop for me

    I look up to the stars with my perfect memory
    I lived through it all, and my future's no shock to me
    I look down, but I see no tragedy
    I look up to my past, my spirit running free
    I look down, I look down, and I'm there in history
    Oh I'm a soul survivor

    (Soul survivor on the river, but it won't stop)
    (Soul survivor on the river, but it won't stop)
    I might have been queen!
    (Soul survivor on the river, but it won't stop)
    I know the secret combination
    (Soul survivor on the river, but it won't stop)
    I might have been queen!
    (Soul survivor on the river, but it won't stop)
    I know the secret combination
    (Soul survivor on the river, but it won't stop)
    I might have been queen,I know the secret combination
    (Soul survivor on the river, but it won't stop)
    I might have been queen,I know the secret combination
    (Soul survivor on the river, but it won't stop)Writer/s: JAMES WEST-ORAM, RUPERT HINE
