Jon Foreman – Over The River lyrics

Hush, hush, hush, hush
Hush, hush, hush, hush

I heard a sound come from the ground
All of the trees are abuzz
Talking in tongues, talking with lungs
Talking with freedom

All of the earth is soon to give birth
Look at the mountains alive
Birds and the bees, insects and me
All of us longing, longing for home, home
Home is somewhere I've never known

Over the river, over the river
I've set my hope
Over the river, over the river
I'll find my home in you, you

Death where is your sting, your signet ring?
Where is your power? Why all this war?
Death to the score, nations are fading
Kingdom of light setting us right, finally human

Give me your tongue, you will be done
Inside I'm lonely, lonely for love, love
Love is something I've never known

Over the river, over the river
I'll find my home
Over the river, over the river
I'll find my hope in you, you

Hush, hush, hush
