(j. obstoj, r. hine, j. west-oram)
Producer: rupert hine
Albums: private dancer (84), what's love got to do with it (93)
Remixed by chris lord-alge for the what's love got to do with soundtrack


I'm a new pair of eyes everytime I am born
An original mind because I just died
And I'm scanning the horizon
For someone recognizing that I might have been queen
For every sun that sets there is a new one dawning
For every empire crushed there is a brand new nation
Let the waters rise, I have ridden each tide
From the gates of the city where the first born died

And I might have been queen
I remember the girl in the fields with no name
She had a love
But the rivers won't stop for me
No, the rivers won't stop to me

I'm a new pair of eyes, an original mind
With my senses of old and the heart of a giant
And I'm searching through the wreckage
For some recollection that I might have been queen
For every sage that falls there's an ancient child

And I might have been queen
I remember the girl in the fields with no name
She had a love
But the rivers won't stop for me
No, the rivers won't stop to me

I look up to the stars with my perfect memory
I look through it all and my future is no shock to me
I look down but I see no tragedy
I look up to the stars till I find my destiny
I look up to my past, a spirit running free
I look down, I look down and I'm there in history
I'm a soul survivor

A soul survivor
On the river
But it won't stop
