The River in Your Eyes
No matter what goes by you and I can't deny it
Oh, I remember you as falling rain
Everywhere we go the wind will whisper and remind us
And you'll remember me
And I will never let you fade away

There was a storm on the way, crashing hard across the prairie
The Llano Estacado that day
I turned my back to the wind, tried to get out of the weather
But there is no place to hide on the plains

If I can make twenty miles, I can roll into the canyon
And hide under a ledge up above
Let the hail stones fall, I'll watch them from my cavern
And think about the way it all was

Where the river in your eyes was liquefied diamonds
The water in your hair flowed down you like wine
And I drank up every drop 'til I was out of my mind
That's how much I was alive when I had you beside me

When the storm finally passed and I stepped out of the shadows
I knew I could still smell your hair
Even so many years since you wrapped your arms around me
It does not matter at all - you are there

Where the river in your eyes was liquefied diamonds
The water in your hair flowed down you like wine
And I drank up every drop 'til I was out of my mind
That's how much I was alive when I had you beside me

No matter what goes by you and I can't deny it
Oh, I remember you as falling rain
Everywhere we go the wind will whisper and remind us
And you'll remember me
And I will never let you fade away

As I rise to the plains and I roll across the prairie
Those shimmering stars in the dark
Keep me holding on the the time we knew together
And the day you broke through the dam in my heart

Where the river in your eyes was liquified diamonds
The water in your hair flowed down you like wine
And I drank up every drop 'til I was out of my mind
That's how much I was alive when I had you beside me
