Roll On, River

This song is by Lindisfarne and appears on the album Roll On, Ruby (1973).

Step by step, we climb the stairs in search of something far away
Day by day, we'll fade away and watch each other disappear
Maybe it's all in vain trying to suit my pain

On the river bay and all along the wayside
There are crowds of unbelievers
There's nothing ever said, all is in their faces
All are hopeless cases
So roll on, river, river, roll on
Roll on, river, forever roll on

Step by step, we climb the stairs in search of something far away
Day by day, we'll fade away and watch each other disappear
Winding river

There's nothing ever said, all is in their faces
All are hopeless cases
So roll on, river, river, roll on
Roll on, river, forever roll on

Hopelessly we try to mend the boats of every broken dream
Drifting with my only friends and sinking as the river bends
Winding river

Roll on, river, river, roll on
Roll on, river, forever roll on
Roll on, river, river, roll on
Roll on, river, roll on, river
