​Why This River Runs

This song is by Dan Seals and appears on the album Make It Home (2002).

The sound of your name is like the wind on the water
On the surface it dances with the light of the moon
Below the reflection deep as a heartbeat
All that I am starts flowing to you

Why this river runs to you
No matter where you are
Why it always flows straight to
The ocean of your heart
It's because all that I am and all that is true
Was meant to be a part of you
Forever no matter what comes
That's why this river runs

The light of your smile is like the glow of the morning
Full of the promise of an untouched day
Wherever I look you fill the horizon
And my heart without question is swept away

Why this river runs to you
No matter where you are
Why it always flows straight to
The ocean of your heart
It's because all that I am and all that is true
Was meant to be a part of you
Forever no matter what comes
That's why this river runs

It's because all that I am and all that is true
Was meant to be a part of you
Forever no matter what comes
That's why this river runs
That's why this river runs
