About the song
I actually wrote this in the 70's, and it was on the first recording I ever did in a studio.
I might be going crazy ‘cause I don’t understand
I’ve been thinking a lot And forgetting a lot
about knowing where I stand
(I might be getting Lazy ‘cause I won’t Lift a hand
I Follow my nose and I think that it shows I just don’t have a plan
I Walk down by the river And I watch the water shine
And I wish that it were mine to Carry homeYou there, you’re a giver I see it in your eyes A river any size could be your home
I won’t be getting younger I guess I’ll never know
If I’m sailing behind The dreams in my mind
The wind just doesn’t blow
2I’m thinking of the hunger That forces me to go
Down to the shore With never much more
Than a sorry look to show (chorus)
I might be getting older Cause I could never see
I’ve been singing a lot and I guess I forgot
You were listening to me

The days are getting colder, I’ll need you next to me
And as the river flows, well I suppose
we’ll take it out to sea (chorus)
