String Cheese Incident – Sometimes A River lyrics

I was cleaning the ash from the fire
And putting the party away
Helping out all of my lost friends
To see the light of day

I was feeling the wind through the windows
Sometimes it crashed through the wall
Seems like it comes out of nowhere
Theres no warning at all

Sometimes a river
Sometimes a river
Runs dry
Sometimes a river
Sometimes a river
Runs high

I was making my way through a movie
Finding it hard to decide
Sometimes it hits without warning
And turns me over inside

Making a stab in the darkness
Wearing a hole in the floor
Suddenly everything changes
Your not the same as before


You danced in my dream in a white dress
I watched from the top of the stairs
I woke up looking to find you
But you were not there

17 hours of driving
But that's not a surprise
The worlds all heavy with traffic
They never were good at goodbyes

No we never were good at goodbyes
