Let the River Flow

This song is by John Illsley and appears on the album Never Told a Soul (1984).

A full moon tide sweeps in to wash the sand to white
A fairy-tale keeps a child wide eyed at night
A golden band could bring such happiness
A dream of you and me or a heaven for times of loneliness

Won't you take my hand at the picture show
I love to sit with you and let the river flow
Let the river flow

I hear a church bell ring
There's people searchin' for the Holy Ghost
But now our daily bread
Gets delivered like the morning post

Rock of Ages pass they pass
Like ships that dance by in the night
This dream keeps haunting me
Only to get shattered by the first morning light

Won't you take my hand at the picture show
I love to sit with you and let the river flow
Let the river flow

Well it makes no sense to me
So close yet so far apart
A sailor lost at sea
With the promise from his lover's heart

Can't stop this circle of fear
I'm like a priest whose confessing alone
At the end of the street a dark man appears
And cuts me right through to the bone

Won't you take my hand at the picture show
So good to sit with you and let the river flow
Let the river flow
