PHIL COLLINS


River So Wide Lyrics

If we can cross at the place that divides us,
Cross the river, the river so wide,
If we can smother the pain that's inside us,
Deny the demons that wait by our side,
We can find, find the light.

Our nights are filled with the light of the same moon.
We share the comfort of the same stars.
Our days are bright with the light of the same sun.
That don't matter. Can't you see what we are,
What we are, what we become?

Keep our sights on the way ahead.
Don't look back. It won't help us now.
The storm we left so far behind
Seems a dark memory that starts to fade,
But, until we see the light, we will not be safe.

We all sink or swim in the same ocean.
Break our skin and we will bleed.
Our minutes pass with the same motion.
We face the same danger. We share the same need.
Oh, we're all the same, you and me.

Keep our sights on the way ahead.
Don't look back. That won't help us now.
'Cause upstream, the river, it gets too wide,
So we must build that bridge right here,
'Cause if we wait, we will not reach the other side.

You see under that clear blue sky
The winds of change are blowing hard and long.
And they'll not stop to rest
'Cause the change is gonna come.

Our nights are filled with the light of the same moon.
We share the comfort of the same stars.
Our days are bright with the light of the same sun.
That don't matter. Can't you see what we are,
Oh, what we are, what we become?

Keep our sights on the way ahead.
Don't look back. That won't help us now.
'Cause upstream, the river, it gets too wide,
And if we don't build that bridge
Right here, right now,
You know we'll never ever reach the other side.

This is so powerfully beautiful...there need be a specific dictionary meaning for something sung from the soul...so there is none...
