Don't Rush The River

Janis Ian/Kyle Fleming

I looked at the sky
and asked - Why is this valley
so deep and so wide,?
when I know love's waiting
just over that mountain
Why can't I fly?
and the wind replied

Don't rush the river
Let it run deep and slow
Don't rush the river
It goes where it needs to go
In love's sweet time,
you'll wake up and find
you've finally made it home
Don't rush the river
Just let it flow

I walked in the silence
and wondered why love
takes so long to find
Then I saw the beauty
that sprang up around me
It bathed my eyes,
and my heart sighed

Don't rush the river
Let it run deep and slow
Don't rush the river
It goes where it needs to go
In love's sweet time,
you'll wake up and find
you've finally made it home
Don't rush the river
Just let it flow
