Lyrics
THE RIVER

So deep in the water
Sleep, dark as the night
Somehow it seems it was all another dream
Soon dissolved in the light.

Oh, we were by the waterline.
Vague, the song of the night.
Innocent to all the peasant gods with you,
So, we drink to be renewed.

On the long, deep river
Where the moorhens cry
As the first sun quivers in the open sky...

Oh, she came down the river.
Soon, all the leaves were still.
The current was strong and the river was so long.
So, we drink to be renewed.

In the long cool evening,
Where the peacocks shiver
And the boat starts down the silver river way...

I remember you saying,
As her deep eyes opened,
In the first light seeing her,
"Here is someone new".

Deep and flowing
Beautiful version, wonderfully produced and sung (as if it could be otherwise) - love that nagging guitar. Excellent, romantic track

This brings back memories ....
... of that last slow dance of the night in the country bar ... ah those were the days ..... I should have saved this one for later when I needed a nice mellow at the end of the evening .... but it was still a nice mellow to start my evening off with .....

Had an old time feel to it
as if it was made for a 1950's Western but with a modern intelligent lyric. You two sing well together. Thanks.
