Plunkett – The River lyrics

I want a life he said
Where everything's right he said
The first thing out loud for two days

The pieces are many
If I miss one I'll be empty
I know it's a lot but that's me

My thoughts are all one
My thoughts are all one

I know there's a place he said
A beautiful place he said
I'll wait cause there's only one way
The waiting gets harder
And my patience slips further
But I wait slowly by each new day

My thoughts are all one
My thoughts are all one
I'm burning inside in this cold winters sun
My thoughts are all one
My thoughts are just one
Let me go

Out by the river here
I still know what I really fear
But at least I can breathe for a while
One day I'll come back home
But won't walk this path alone
And think of this boy here and smile
