All Roads To The River

Janis Ian/Jon Vezner

I am master and slave
I am sunlight and shadow
I am all roads to the river
I am lost, I am saved
I am beloved and betrayed
All roads to the river

And the river runs wide
The river runs deep
I spit in the eye of safe company
When I dive right down
to the undertow,
the deeper I drown,
the higher I go

I am whispering dreams
I am howling revolutions
All roads to the river
I am Valentine sweet
I am every mother's nightmare
I am all roads to the river

The river runs wide
The river runs deep
I spit in the eye of safe company
When I dive right down
to the undertow,
The deeper I drown,
The higher I go

I dream of still waters,
silent and clear
But I run for the thunder
that'll drown my fear

(Instrumental)

River runs wide
River runs deep
I spit in the eye of safe company
When I dive right down
o the undertow,
The deeper I drown,
the higher I go
