​River

This song is by Lindisfarne and appears on the album Happy Daze (1974).

Sitting by river on warm summer day
Thinking of the giver who's also the taker away
Stunned by the suchness, there's not a lot to say

Warmed by the mystery instead of being scared
Touched by a raindrop anointing my head
River, be my mirror, grass, be my bed

Love is in the shadows kissing leaves one by one
Where I go it follows and warms me with the sun
Bright butterflying, there's so much to be done

And you lie here beside me, your perfume in my nose
Your eyes do not deny me, the space between us is closed
You let the river speak for us, there's nothing it does not know

Flowing ever changing, form in front of me
Taking all your secrets to spill them in the sea
Spare one drop of precious water then I might be free

Sitting by river on warm summer day
Thinking of the giver who's also the taker away
Stunned by the suchness, there's not a lot to say
