It was an old river, and wide
And I gave it my life
I danced the whole masquerade
And if I never return
I will not regret the choice I made
To breathe the water in and drown

After the fire I ran through the night
Til I came to the river's shore
There I fell to Earth and cried
A burned and broken man was I
I'd never felt so utterly alone

And then the river called my name
"Come let me hold you"
Her voice a golden thread pulling me towards the mystery
Suddenly the voice was clear:
Time to let go, go on home, throw my bones into this

Old river
Old river
Old river and wide
