River of Life

Dedicated to Steve (Hoss) and Rob (RIP)

On the river of life, river of dreams

We keep moving on, floating downstream

Through the rough waters and whatever they bring

We keep moving on, floating downstream

 

Some days it rains, sometimes it pours

The river may rise, we weather the storm

Ride it out till the water recedes

We keep moving on, floating downstream

 

River of life keeps flowing so fast

We can’t slow down and we can’t turn back

Let the waters take you and set you free

We keep moving on, floating downstream

 

Darkness comes followed by night

The river still flows towards daylight

Shadows wake beneath the trees

We keep moving on, floating downstream

 

I lose a friend, a brother too

Somehow we got to make it through

I hear his voice just telling me

To keep moving on,  floating downstream

 

River of life keeps flowing so fast

We can’t slow down and we can’t turn back

Let the waters take you and set you free

We keep moving on, floating downstream

 

On the river of life, the river of dreams

We keep moving on, floating downstream

Through the rough waters and whatever they bring

We keep moving on, floating downstream
