lyrics

I forgot that I was the water, flowin’ to the ocean blue
Tried to tame the fury, didn’t break a rock ‘Til that old sand asked me to

Cozy would it be to stay in one piece
Closing the whispers that grow underneath
I am a river coming home to you
Silver in the night, you greet me

All my pieces enter you, everything scatters, nothing is lost
Even those that wash away -- they’re all inside, it takes nothing

It takes nothing, it takes nothing
It takes nothing, it takes nothing
To be big enough for all the salt in the ocean

Ooh, on the way I may linger in a marsh
Clearing out what’s no longer needed
To give more of me to you
More of me to you, wah uh oh

Who will I be without riverbanks
Walls to keep the fury?
How will I move, moving boundary
What creatures live in my depth now?

I forgot that I was the water, flowin’ to the ocean blue

It takes nothing, it takes nothing
It takes nothing, it takes nothing
To be big enough for all the salt in the ocean
