08. The River

World As Best As I Remember It Vol. 1
by Rich Mullins



 

Another hour deeper in the night, another mile farther down the road,
A man can drive as hard as he can drive, never get as far as his heart was meant to go,
Sometimes when you look up in the sky, you think we might be closer than you know.

Another tune forms in my head, more harmonies, more empty words,
Oh, I could play these songs 'til I was dead and never approach the sound that I once heard,
I remember when I was just a kid, listening in the sky, believing that the wind would stir.

And I know the river is deep,
And I found out that the currents are tricky,
And I know the river is wide,
Oh, the currents are strong,
And I may lose every dream I dreamt that I could carry with me,
But I have failed so many times, and you have never let me fall down alone.

Maybe she could come to Wichita, and maybe we could borrow Beaker's bike,
Let the road wind tie our hair in knots, let the speed and the freedom untangle the lies,
Maybe fear can vanish before love,
Oh God, don't let this love be denied.

'Cause I know the river is deep,
And I found out that the currents are tricky,
And I know the river is wide,
Oh, the currents are strong,
And I could lose every dream I dreamt that I could carry with me, oh, but I will reach the other side,
Please don't let me have to wait too long.

Another hour deeper in the night,
Another mile farther down the road.

We could be closer than you know.
