1. Secret River

From the recording Dark Matter


There is a river
A secret river
Running deep beneath our world
It carries memory
It carries the story
River of life
River of tears

Such a little boat
On such a big river
Can we make a home in this new land?
Was something moving behind the trees?
Is it a shadow?
Is it a dream?

I wish I could find me a boat
And a handy boatman
To carry me back
Back up that river
That secret river
To undo the wrong I’ve done

Seasons come
Seasons go
I hear you there in the river’s flow
In all of nature you’ll remain
Until the daisy yams bloom again
