Stones From The Riverbed

This song is by Matthew Perryman Jones and appears on the album Land Of The Living (2012).

Silently tracing the cracks
Through the chaos
Grieving what cannot come back

What's gone away
Feeling the weight
Of sorrow's night
You can't find your way through the black
So you pray for light

Everyone's trying to find
Ways to fix it
You know in your heart what you need
To work it out
Looking away to a violent sky
There's a deep dark river
Rising on the inside

And you stand in the water
With your arms crossed
Groaning Hallelujah
And the trees bow to the east
As the sun waits under the sea
Fall into that mystery
Or it will pull you under
Fall into the mystery
Or it will pull you under

It's ok to say goodbye
It's ok to say goodbye
It's ok...
It's ok to say goodbye

The stones in the city walls
Were pulled from the river bed
