The River That Flows Above Me

Oh the River!
The River, the River, the River!
It flows above me in an abundant amount of water…
Will it never seem to end?

The River, the River, the River!
Sand and rocks bang and smash against my skin….
Will it never seem to end?

The River, the River, the River!
My lungs scream to inhale the sweet form of air…
Will it never seem to end?

The River, the River, the River!
Chest pulled in tight, trying to save that of the last of the treat of air…
Will it never seem to end?

The River, the River, the River!
Drowning hurts, you feel as if you were about to explode! I can't imagine a worse death...
Will it ever seem to end?

The River, the River, the River!
I wish I learned how to swim, I wish I never did take that dare…
Will it never seem to end?

The River, the River, the River!
I hear people shouting to one another…
Will it never seem to end?

The River, the River, the River!
What are they saying? I know not all that makes sense is the rush of water against my ears….
Will it never seem to end?

The River, the River, the River!
Have they found me? How long have I been under? It's hard to say when all I see is blue...
Will it never seem to end?

The River, the River, the River!
If only I said good-bye to my loved ones...
Will it never seem to end?

The River, the River, the River!
I let out my last breath and all around the world turns from blue to black….
Will it never seem to end?

The River, the River, the River!
I hear Angels singing, voices pure and sweet…
It seemed to have ended.

The River, the River, the River!
The River is what seemed to have finished me...
It seemed to have ended.

The River, the River, the River!
I wish I knew what they were saying! Could they have helped me?
It seemed to have ended.

The River, the River, the River!
All great writer's die in water, or so I hear, like Virginia Woolf...
It seemed to have ended.

The River, the River, the River!
If only I could have said good-bye. If only...
