river

I’m learning to ‘listen’ to the ‘flow’ of life all around me and not get so caught up in little things that don’t really matter.
Learning to enjoy! Life is good…

The river runs
and i look into it
i see myself
in a million faces there
i’m always changing shape

it’s not a matter of sink or swim

cause if i listen long enough
i will hear you and i will follow your way
for you know me well
and you will bring me home again
this i have felt

I’ll take the plunge
no longer torn apart
there’s freedom here
i am one with this gentle current
it is my watery road

it’s not a matter of sink or swim

for you, you enter my mouth
you flow through my viens
you, you enter my wounds
soothing my pain
i’m no longer the same.

Very gentle guitar work and rolling chords that buoy and support your nice flowing singing... really matches well to the idea of 'river'. Calming and heartwarming. Well done. ttfn, Drakonis

Hey Anthony, I listened to a bunch of your music this morning. The music is excellent, the lyrics poignant and moving. You take your listeners on an emotional/musical journey. Powerful. Thanks for the trip! Cal

like the sentiment of this a lot. The hook is subtle but really grabs hold. vocal reminds me of tim buckley for some reason. great stuff anthony. ps. if u fully figure out how to let go of things that dont matter.. tell me your secret! The song blocked it temporarily.. but WHY WONT PEOPLE INDICATE!! :)
