Terry Reid – River lyrics

Is it my maker?
Am I the breaker?
Has it come too soon?
Am I to follow?
Where life seems hallowed
By some impending doom

It makes me ache right now
That the lover of life
Gets lost somehow
'Cos his colour fade in the rain
He goes down to the river again

To find to be
An opening to the sea
So that can't be that hard
If he wants to see
The river

Some having trouble
When life at the double
Ought to be immune
Some say it's hazy
Others feel lazy
Some don't know what to do

It never breaks somehow
That the pattern of life is a loving vow
Every man has got to ordain
Every soul that comes in from the rain
And once the sea can find someone
Open up and tell its wildest dreams
To one that seen all before
That's why you can't see through my floor that's a part
On the river

Taking time I rowed on with her
There's a star in the air never be returning to
Find what else that heart is yearning for
But you want to take
Seems a good life can see
Though it describes the more I can see the point
Can't people see that part of what can be?
Oh see in a river
