River Run Red

lyrics

I pray for many things, not all of them are good.
I know you'd understand if you could only see.
If only I had wings. I'd leave here if I could,
but this moat's the only thing that keeps the world away from me

and the water's too clear to hide...

River run red!
Keep me safe behind the stone.
I have to rely on you.
I've no shield of my own.
Believe me, I've bled
far too much for one lifetime.
So river, if you hear me,
let no one cross the line.

This story's just begun. It can't be over yet.
So much still to look forward to. So much still to dread.
I know not everything can turn out as I wish,
but still, there must be compromise between perfect and this.

The more I run for the door, the further away it gets.
Pinch me, tell me I'm dreaming 'cause I cannot reach the end.

River run red!
Keep me safe behind the stone.
I have to rely on you.
I've no shield of my own.
Believe me, I've bled
far too much for one lifetime.
So river, if you hear me,
let no one cross the line.

Believe me, I've bled
far too much for one lifetime.
So river, if you hear me,
let no one cross the line.
