lyrics

LYRICS

Come back river to the place you ran
The sun’s going down and the time is at hand
Come back river to the place you flowed
And hold me close in your icy robes

Come back now
Make your way
Oh the path’ll be different than it was
Yesterday

Come back river to the place you left
I lay on a stone all alone and wept
Come back river with my tears that fall
I gave you all away ‘til there was nothing left at all

Come back river my bed’s gone dry
Rub me ‘til I shimmer I reflect the sky
Come back river be the flesh of my bones
And glisten in my soul ‘til I can sing my own way home

Her third album, due out in fall 2020, is a musical exploration of four seasons in Washington's Methow Valley. ... more
