Story behind the song
As in the discription inspired by a question one of my sons asked me years ago.
Lyrics
Where [01/01/00] [A] Where is the river running too? Will it ever reach the sea? Where is the river running too? My young one once asked me. [B] It's running towards the ocean, so blue to its mother's waiting breast. And only when it reaches her side is when it will stop and rest. Break: [A] Where is the ocean rolling too? Will it reach the distant shore? Where is the ocean rolling too? Asked my young one wanting more. [B] It's rolling in all directions and will touch many lands. As it has for millions of years since the world began. Break: Where is the earth headed too? Will pollution make it die? Where is the earth headed too? Said my young one, concern in his eyes. [B] The earth's future looks bleak at times with an uncertain end. But I believe she will survive having you as a friend. [A] Where will I be going to? When I am older and on my own? Where will I be going to? Will I be left all alone? [B] Your life will run like the river and roll like the oceans of old. Your future's hidden in mystery. You must wait and watch it unfold. [Tag] Your life will run like the river and roll on like the oceans of old. Your future's hidden in mystery. Wait and watch it unfold. Copyright 2022 by Douglas Murphy
