Blue mountain river, if only for a while,
Take me to the river, I lay down by your side,
The world is full of madness and I find it hard to smile,
I'll sleep within through winter and wait for summertime.
Blue mountain river, comfort me a while,
I 'll follow down the river, follow you til night,
I listen to you whispers, you dance in time to mine,
We'll stay awake together watching silver in the sky.
Blue mountain river, I wanna rest a while,
You're changing my reflection and the seasons in my mind,
Let these days go on forever, I 'll leave in my own time,
Take me where you're going and I 'll be right by your side.
Blue mountain river, I went there for a while,
I listened for an answer and I found it deep inside,
When I'm lost behind the shadows and I wanna run and hide,
My blue mountain river is there right by my side.
