I watch once more Just approximately the riverbend beyond the shore whereby the gulls fly free Don"t know what because that What i dream the day might send Just roughly the riverbend because that me Coming because that me

I don"t know why I"m drifting below Past pasture trees and waterfalls I must go home and also join the celebrating have actually a handsome sturdy husband that builds handsome sturdy walls and forget mine dream that something"s waiting Just roughly the riverbend Just approximately the riverbend

I look at once much more Just around the riverbend beyond the shore Somewhere previous the sea Don"t recognize what because that Why execute all my dreams extend Just around the riverbend? Just approximately the riverbend

Should I select the smoothest course stable as the beating drum? need to I marry Kocoum? Is all my dreaming at an end? Or do you still wait because that me, Dream Giver Just around the riverbend?
