I was walkin' by the river
I held my hand out to feel the rain

Just a light rain
Almost a sun shower
Makin'all things shine again

And I felt like I belonged
I felt so strong
As I walked on

There was rhythm
And there was order
There was a balance
There was a flow

There was patience
Indulgence
There was a power
I could not know

And I felt it all made sense
The innocence
The permanence

I took my young son to the river
I held his hand out to feel the rain
