Song Of The Week: The River

This song is one of my favorites for "Garth Brooks" who is already a legend in country music.
I hope you all like it :)

The River (Click on the title to go to the song page)


You know a dream is like a river
Everchanging as it flows
And the dreamer's just a vessel
That must follow where it goes
Trying to learn from what's behind you
And never knowing what's in store
Makes each day a constant battle
Just to stay between the shores...

And I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky
I'll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry...

Too many times we stand aside
And let the waters slip away
'Til what we put off 'til tomorrow
Has now become today
So don't you sit upon the shoreline
And say you're satisfied
Choose to chance the rapids
And dare to dance the tide...

Yes, I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky
I'll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry...

There's bound to be rough waters
And I know I'll take some falls
But with the good Lord as my captain
I can make it through them all...

Yes, I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky
I'll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry...

Yes, I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry
'Til the river runs dry...

Tomorrow will never be today. It's the dreams that never comes true and it's the land of the Neverland.

Daydreamer:
You should listen to country there are many nice songs :D

Well not all dreams can come true even if you believe 100000% in them :P

True Faith:
And today is yesterday I guess :D

Nasra:
Some songs can be very inspiring indeed and also I like the words in the song because it was written in a poetic style.

Pink sHoKoLaa..:
The link is there! Click on the title and it will take you to the song page! I wrote that beside the title :P

As I said some dreams can't come true because some of them are really impossible at least for the time being just like me walking on clouds it is impossible thesedays! Maybe in the future they will invent something to make it true, but I won't be the one working on that :P

Faith said...

I loved the song, esp this part:
I'll never reach my destination
If I never try

yeah dreams could come true even the ones that seem impossible, they just need extra courage + guts + will to make them true :)

great choice of a song, HP!

Faith:
Glad you liked the song :)

I know dreams could come true if someone really worked hard and with a little luck too! I admit that I have some dreams that I don't want them to come true. I just want them to remain beautiful or even ugly dreams :P
