When I reach to hold you, I'll still be alone
When I heard the ringin' of the telephone
I'll think it is you
It will not be true

I know why the river runs
To a place somewhere far away
I know why the sky is cryin
When there aren't any words to say

I could play the message that you left for me
I can hear your voice and I could still believe
That you will send me home
But you will never come

I know why the river runs
To a place somewhere far away
I know why the sky is cryin
When there aren't any words to say

There's a silence that I don't want to keep
There's a hole now where my heart used to be

I lie here for so long
But you will never come

I know why the river runs
To a place somewhere far away
I know why the sky is cryin
When there aren't any words to say
I know why the river runs
To a place somewhere far away
I know why the sky is cryin
When there aren't any words to say
