Shallow River - Lyrics

There's a cold rain pouring out of your weary eyes
Water from the well that's drying out inside
And quiet like a whisper
It crawls over your skin like a shallow river

It's the quiet sound of goodbye
In the garden of your mind
Where the cold wind shivers
And turn into the stream of a shallow river

If I only knew the words
But the answer to your questions they are still unheard
And I know it tears you down
It's not easy to let go of someone you really care about

Like a bloodstream it streams into your head again
Oh love is as soft as a piece of bread
And tears can taste so bitter
As they crawl over your lips like a shallow river

There's hunger in your eyes
Screaming for love like the night screams for daylight
And through your veins it wanders

But like the wound in your mind
We'll all come to heal from time to time
Like a cold wave of winter
As it freezes the weight of a roaring river

And love hurts whenever it pleases
Well I guess we all have to deal with it
Sometimes your heart feels sad

But it's always darkest before the dawn
It's hard to see the future until the light turns on
And a broken heart grows bigger
And stronger in the waves of a shallow river
