Verse 1

And the river halts on its way to call my name.

My reflection in its crystal droplets bursts into flames.

And she sings so melancholy a lullaby,

Like every inch of her is crying as I slowly die.

Chorus

There's not a soul in sight for a thousand miles.

The joy I held on tight to has been exiled.

I'm alone with the river

Of lonely whispers.

I'm alone with the river

Of muted shivers.

And the only thing that's holding me together

Is this sorrow in me that survives harsh weather.

Verse 2

There's a dirge resonating deep within my soul.

I let my tears drench the earth, wishing it'd swallow me whole.

Let the water rise to my neck, but I won't drown.

In our mutual grief, I merge with her without a sound.

Chorus

There's not a soul in sight for a thousand miles.

The joy I held on tight to has been exiled.

I'm alone with the river

Of lonely whispers.

I'm alone with the river

Of muted shivers.

And the only thing that's holding me together

Is this sorrow in me that survives harsh weather.

Bridge

The wind is wild,

Like a frenzied child,

Who just lost a doll.

The air is cold,

Like pain will unfold,

And I will just fall.

Chorus

There's not a soul in sight for a thousand miles.

The joy I held on tight to has been exiled.

I'm alone with the river

Of lonely whispers.

I'm alone with the river

Of muted shivers.

And the only thing that's holding me together

Is this sorrow in me that survives harsh weather.

Outro

And the only thing that's holding me together

Is this sorrow in me that survives harsh weather.
