lyrics

TRAXX (FOR THE RIVER)

“Losing track of all the tracks I have travelled,
I am not on the map; yesterday is no tomorrow
And I won’t look back, & I won’t let go when this ocean overflows…”
She knows she will dry, as she stands in the rain
& stares up at the clouds, so when the storm starts again
She knows she will dry, as she stands with no shame
& cares not for the crowds, who ridicule her name
She knows she will dry, so when the heavens open wide
She knows it’s her time, she will know to be alive,
And she said, “I’m…

Losing track of all the tracks I have travelled,
I am not on the map; yesterday is no tomorrow
So I won’t look back, & I won’t let go when this ocean overflows…
I’m searching for something worth seeking
Instead of giving in to what’s given
I regret it appears that I have lost my head
The emerald rivers have swallowed my bed
And now I… can’t lie… any more…”

So when the truth comes out,
When the whispers of the waves begin to shout,
She said, “I know I’ll find my way”
She said, “I know I’ll find my way, but I’m…

Losing track of all the tracks I have travelled…

I know I will dry, so when the heavens open wide
I know it’s my time, I will know to be alive”
