      About "River"

      Lyrics for Mary Chapin Carpenter - "River"

      River full of stones when there's no rain
      River full and rushing when the clouds let loose again
      River every season like a prayer
      We're standing in the shallows making crosses in the air

      Want to build the strongest bridge
      Want to love you the best I can
      Feel no fear upon the edge
      Here's my heart, baby take my hand

      River like a poem to the trees
      River telling stories to the rushes and the leaves
      River every season like a vow
      We're standing in the shallows wondering who will save us now

      Want to build the strongest bridge
      Want to love you the best I can
      Feel no fear upon the edge
      Here's my heart, baby take my hand

      River from the currents to the pools
      River turning kinder turning suddenly too cruel
      River every season like a dream
      We're standing in the shallows wading in to wash us clean

      Want to build the strongest bridge
      Want to love you the best I can
      Feel no fear upon the edge
      Here's my heart, baby take my hand

      Want to build the strongest bridge
      Want to love you the best I can
      Feel no fear upon the edge
      Here's my heart, baby take my hand

      Want to hold you close to me
      Never fail you, never falter
      Seeing all that love can see
      Reflecting back on the water
