And they came to the river
And they came from the road
And he wanted the sun
Just to call his own

And they walked on the dirt
And they walked from the road
'til they came up close
Throw your pain in the river
To be washed away slow

And we walked without words
And we walked with our lives
Two silent birds
Circled by

Like our pain in the river
And we followed the river
And we followed the road
And we walked through this land

And we called it a home
But he wanted the sun
And I wanted the whole
And the white light scatters

And the sun sets low
Like the pain in the river
