I am just a child in the sun
Just another soul on the run
One more of your unwanted sons
Tell me where can I go

I had a line I tried for a while
Now Im walkin mile after mile
On my face no trace of a smile
Why does time pass so slow

Take me down to the river
Take me down to the sea
Where I can drown all my sorrows
Wash all my troubles away
Watch all my cares sail away

I have no ties my hands are unbound
There is no friend no love I have found
I have no ups Im fixed to the ground
Tell me river where you flow.
