don't we all throw a coin and wish for this?
you and I in bed the record’s on we're so
cavalier, 'understood at last,' you said, so we were
calling out what we think our futures hold

but you are the river, and i'm the stone
canyon wall you were just, just passing through.

morning light reappeared, we'd stayed up all night.
the garden lay undiscovered, the trees shared their colors.
can't we stay like this for all of time? never.
never change your course, never change your mind?

but you are the river and i'm the stone
canyon wall and you're just, just passing through

like the wind through the valley and the sea that scrapes the shore,
all those days did shape us

because you are the river and I'm the stone
and you're swift, and you're strong, and I erode

you are the river and I'm the stone
canyon wall and you're just, just passing through.
