GARTH BROOKS


The River Lyrics

You know a dream is like a river
ever changin' as it flows
and a dreamer's just a vessel
that must follow where it goes
trying to learn from what's behind you
and never knowing what's in store
makes each day a constant battle
just to stay between the shores
and i will sail my vessel
'til the river runs dry
like a bird upon the wind
these waters are my sky
i'll never reach my destination
if i never try
so i will sail my vessel
'til the river runs dry
too many times we stand aside
and let the waters slip away
'til what we put off 'til tomorrow
it has now become today
so don't you sit upon the shoreline
and say you're satisfied
choose to chance the rapids
and dare to dance that tide
and i will sail my vessel
'til the river runs dry
like a bird upon the wind
these waters are my sky
i'll never reach my destination
if i never try
so i will sail my vessel
'til the river runs dry
there's bound to be rough waters
and i know i'll tke soome falls
with the good lord as my captain
i can make it through them all
and i will sail my vessel
'til the river runs dry
like a bird upon the wind
these waters are my sky
i'll never reach my destination
if i never try
so i will sail my vessel
'til the river runs dry
lord, i will sail my vessel
'til the river runs dry
yea
