I'm a new pair of eyes
Every time I am born
An original mind
Because I just died

And I'm scanning the horizon for someone recognizing
That I might have been queen
For every sun that sets there is a new one dawning
For every empire crushed there is a brand new nation

Let the waters rise
I've ridden each tide
From the gates of the city
Where the first born died

And I might have been queen
I remember the girl in the fields with no name
She had a love
Oh but the river won't stop for me
No the river won't stop for me

I'm a new pair of eyes
An original mind
With my senses of old
And the heart of a giant

And I'm searching through the wreckage
For some great recollection
That I might have been queen

For every sage that falls
There's an ancient child

And I might have been queen
I remember the girl in the fields with no name
She had a love
Oh but the river won't stop for me
No the river won't stop for me

I look up to the stars with my perfect memory
I lived through it all, and my future's no shock to me
I look down, but I see no tragedy
I look up to my past, my spirit running free
I look down, I look down, and I'm there in history
Oh I'm a soul survivor

(Soul survivor on the river, but it won't stop)
(Soul survivor on the river, but it won't stop)
I might have been queen!
(Soul survivor on the river, but it won't stop)
I know the secret combination
(Soul survivor on the river, but it won't stop)
I might have been queen!
(Soul survivor on the river, but it won't stop)
I know the secret combination
(Soul survivor on the river, but it won't stop)
I might have been queen,I know the secret combination
(Soul survivor on the river, but it won't stop)
I might have been queen,I know the secret combination
(Soul survivor on the river, but it won't stop)
