The River

Standing at the archway
in the older part of this town
I see a river flowing
there are people all around
the castle walls stand strong and high
and have for hundreds of years
this is a place I come to
to try to deal with my fears

I stand and watch the river
I know what I have to do
I need to get on the next boat
and make my way home to you
but then I know if I did
you would never forgive me
for leaving in the first place
but that's just the way it had to be

I know I need this adventure
it's good for my spirit and my broken heart
I never thought I'd be so unsure
I had a plan at the start
but now the days go slowly by
you're across the sea far from me
I want to jump in this river
and swim it out to sea

I stand there till darkness
falls over this place
I don't know what to do
I can still see your face
I hear the river call to me
it wants to take me back to you
I wonder why I came here
I don't know what to do
