She’s a guiding light
With no shape or form
On these long cold nights
A shelter from the storm

The river carves the land
Pillars fall at her hand
Flows on t’ward the sea
That’s where I want to be

I wanna be free

Oh river
Carry me away
Through the night
Lies a brand new day

Shiver through the night
And through the rain
Better journey on
To the end of days

I don’t care about your gold
You don’t own my goddamn soul
See the forest for the trees
Cut loose from falling leaves

I wanna be free

Oh river
Carry me away
Through the night
Lies a brand new day

I wish I was the golden child
But I’m not the chosen one
In the final hour
She will come take me away

Oh river
Carry me away
Through the night
Lies a brand new day
