Grayson Hugh – Time Is Like A River lyrics

Sometimes when the light is almost gone
And it feels like summer is movin' on
Thoughts of you are tremblin' up in the trees
Fallin' down on me
Like a million leaves
And I know that time
Time is like a river
I said time
Time is like a river

And when the blue twilight is turnin' black
And I'm drivin' down the road that don't look back
And the chill of autumn is in the air
And I'm headed off to someplace
But I don't know where
But I know that time
Time is like a river
Yes it is
I said now time
Time is like a river

And I'm sittin' up here on Chestnut Hill
It's been ten long years but I go back still
I can smell the pines
And see the clay
And I can feel the loneliness
Of the long dark highway

Oh I know that time
Time is like a river
It ain't nothin' but a river
And I'm goin' on back
Back to where we used to be
Just you and me
You and me together
And we went walkin' on down
Walkin' on down those dark and empty streets
Oh time is like a river
Yes it is
Said no time
Ain't nothin' but a river
Ain't nothin' but a river
