A River Runs -Oysterband

you are my mate, my long-lost friend
you are my hope, my resonance
you are the edge, my hidden blade
you carry all the plans we made

you are the path, my hidden trail
you are the end, my holy grail
you are my mood, my sudden rage
you are my wit, my final page

there are no certainties
we could fall, we could break apart
you pick me up, you smile
then the whole world starts

a river runs through you and me
never reaches the ocean, never reaches the sea

there is no chance we cannot take
no mistakes we will not make
each time the whirlpool drags us down
we come up laughing, spinning round

we have nothing left to prove
we have broken every rule
and all the hurt that we feel
just makes us stronger when we heal

the river runs so clear, runs so fast it blinds us
meanders to the sea, turns back and surrounds us
lifts us up, takes us down, the eddies swirl and bind us
you and me, you and me

a river runs through you and me
never reaches the ocean, never reaches the sea
