Old, old river
Old as me
I can see it
In the way the wind
Folds wrinkles on your skin
But your breath still flows
Through your shadowed shallows
And beyond your falls

Tall, tall mountain
Tallest trees
Touch the heavens
If I climbed you once
Would you say that was enough?
Would I start to fly?
Held up by starlight
I slip between the skies

Old, old river
I, I am sitting
I, I am listening
I, I am listening
