Lyrics

I've been lost so many times
Searching for comfort I never find
Torn by a memory
Of all we left behind

There's a place by the river
Where you and I would go
Where time smooths a pebble from every jagged stone
And the peaceful waters flow

I lie awake each lonely night
Worn and weary, too tired to fight
Chasing a dream
That keeps on gleaming bright

And there's a place by the river
Where you and I would go
Where time smooths a pebble from every jagged stone
And the peaceful waters flow

It's like a prayer
Being there

Pretty soon there'll come a day
When I admit I can't stay
I'm gonna go back
Try to find my way

To the place by the river
Where you and I would go
Where time smooths a pebble from every jagged stone
And the peaceful waters flow
Where time smooths a pebble from every jagged stone
And the peaceful waters flow
