Runrig – Every River lyrics
You ask me to believe in magic
Expect me to commit suicide of the heart
And you ask me to play this game without question
Raising the stakes on this shotgun roulette
But you came to me like the ways of children
Simple as breathing, easy as air
Now the years hold no fears, like the wind they pass over
Loved, forgiven, washed, saved
Every river I try to cross
Every hill I try to climb
Every ocean I try to swim
Every road I try to find
All the ways of my life
I'd rather be with you
There's no way
Without you

    I'm sorry to describe runrig as a Christian band is simply false. The whole suggestion that they sing solely Christian songs is complete and utter tripe likes.

    For me every river is a song describing the lifetime spent trying to find a true love, the never ending journey and not letting any barrier stand in your way of destiny.

    I am not denying god and I do not need to believe in him to understand runrig. Runrig are a Scottish folk band who crossed into the mainstream. This song epitomises the work of Callum and Rory McDonald. The deep meaningful songwriting that came from the Scottish islands into mainstream music.

    Forget all the god mumbo jumbo and take the music as it was meant.

    Agree with above sentiments, absolutely nothing to do with God. Ridiculous that someone is chucking Runrig and their legacy with rantings about bloody religion, every river is not a religious song.

    It's about love and like the lifetime journey it takes to get to that point in your life, there is nothing stopping you if you find that person.

    Ignore the American preacer clueless about Runrig to be honest

    This American guy going on about God and Christian faith and trying to tie it to Runrig is absolutely ridiculous. The is no link between this song and God, stop trying to throw bloody religion into everything.

    This song is a love song and you can break it down in different ways. Runrig in Scotland have never been a religious band. People don't naturally believe in God and stop pedalling and preaching. Nothing is about connecting with God here you religious nutcase. Any riggy would tell you that you American whack job

    First off I am an American but i so Love Runrig. I am guessing about the meaning of the song. I don't know. But this is what it means to me so far.

    I see Every River as a love song to the creator. Runrig has always been a band of Christians if not a Christian band. I'm writing the meaning in first person because that is how it's sung.

    Four lines are all the ways we try to connect with our Lord in our time on earth.

    People naturally believe in God. Something inside us just knows. When we try to deny him is when it gets complicated.

    Now the years hold no fears, like the wind they pass over. Loved, forgiven, washed, saved

    Pretty simple when you know that to die is to be with the Creator then growing old and dying isn't a scary thing at all. This is the best I can come up with so far. I would love to hear more thoughts.
