(Will Jennings / Martee Lebow)

Everyday when I look in the mirror
I try to see where my soul's at now
Happy day - is it further or nearer?
On the way, will I find it somehow?

Yesterday's gone
Love lead me on, oh
I won't ask why

Roll away - it's only time and the river
Roll away - to the endless sea
Roll away - it could all change tomorrow
This is life in it's glory
And the river runs free
Roll away

My dreams build the walls of the city
Broken hearts tear them all down
It ain't always easy and pretty
It's just the world turning around
Give us this day
Give us this night, oh
It'll be all right

Roll away - it's only time and the river
Roll away - to the endless sea
Roll away - it could all change tomorrow
This is life in it's glory
And the river runs free
Oh, roll away

Everyday when I look in the mirror
I try to see where my soul's at now

Roll away - it's only time and the river
Roll away - to the endless sea
Roll away - it could all change tomorrow
This is life in it's glory
And the river runs free

Roll away - it's only time and the river
Roll away - to the endless sea
Roll away - it could all change tomorrow
This is life in it's glory
And the river runs free
Roll away, ahh, oh
Ahh, ha, ho
