River Song

Let me go where the river runs deep
Let me lie down and let me sleep
Let me flow on down· where the river will
I'm just a ripple~ I'm just a rill
I can't ever make the current still
And I can't control the tide

Let me go where the river runs strong
Let me lie down and float along
Let me flow on down where the river will
I'm just a ripple, I'm just a rill
I can't ever make the current still
And I can't control the tide

People tell me that I'm not concerned enough,
That life's too tough to dream
I reply that no man is as blind as he
Who cannot see the stream

Let me go where the river runs cold
Let the water refresh my soul
Let me flow on down where the river will
I'm just a ripple, I'm just a rill
I can't ever make the current still
And I can't control the tide

Let me go where the river runs still
Let me dive in and drink my fill
Let me flow on down· where the river will
I'm just a ripple, I'm just a rill
I can't ever make the current still
And I can't control the tide

You can pray to any god that suits your soul
but you can't control the stream
Flow on to the ocean where the tides will join
your spirit to the dream
