Mark Knopfler – Lost On The River lyrics

Lost on the river, dark is the night
Just like the blind, praying for site
Drifting alone, heart filled with fright
I'm lost on the river the river of life

Once dear I thought I knew the way
That was before old sad yesterday
Words that you said cut like a knife
I'm lost on the river, the river of life

Out on this river where sorrow's free
Thinking of you how my heart pleads
Tomorrow you'll be another man's wife
I'm lost on the river, the river of life
