lyrics

Dusk trims the sound from the fading day
To the whispering banks
And what the summer frogs say

We know this river in different ways
But we love it the same, we love it the same
We need it the same, I think I need it more every day

I grew up so rich, home in the trees
Our generous kin set a course for my feet but the water’s more swift than it seemed
From the reeds

We all looked down when the shadows came
And the silhouettes swayed
on the Santiam’s face

We’ve held our pain in our separate ways
And I love you the same, I love you the same
I love you the same, I think I love you more today

The ferns on the pond, the moss on the oaks
The old sacred songs are deep in my soul but my ardor for all of it’s grown
On its own line
It's hard not stir and worry who's right
I just want to learn how to push it aside and jump in from our opposite sides
Unconfined
