There's a river of love that runs through all times
There's a river of grief that floods through our lives
It starts when a heart is broken in two
By the thief of belief in anything that's true
But there's a river of love that runs through all times

There's a river of love that runs through all times
But there's a river of tears that flows through our eyes
We fight through the night for freedom as it fades
Into a jail where we fail every time we make a break
But there's a river of love that runs through all times

I had to run before I knew how to crawl
The first step was hard but I've had trouble with them all
But now the night grows darker and the day grows dim
'Cause I know I never will see you again
And I almost made you happy

There's a river of love that runs through all times
There's a river of fire that burns with no lights
The flame is the pain of dreams gone up in smoke
From the lies we deny and we breathe them till we choke
But there's a river of love that runs through all times
