9/11 Let the River Run

I love Carly Simon and Let the River Run is one of my favorite songs she sings. I've printed the lyrics below and linked to the video on youtube. Watch for yourself. It's something - goodness - 80s hair! The contrast of this song to the video - just watch.



Let the River Run:
We're coming to the edge,
Running on the water,
Coming through the fog,
Your sons and daughters.

Let the river run,
Let all the dreamers
Wake the nation.
Come, the New Jerusalem.

Silver cities rise,
The morning lights
The streets that meet them,
And sirens call them on
With a song.

It's asking for the taking.
Trembling, shaking.
Oh, my heart is aching.

We're coming to the edge,
Running on the water,
Coming through the fog,
Your sons and daughters.

We the great and small
Stand on a star
And blaze a trail of desire
Through the dark'ning dawn.

It's asking for the taking.
Come run with me now,
The sky is the color of blue
You've never even seen
In the eyes of your lover.

Oh, my heart is aching.
We're coming to the edge,
Running on the water,
Coming through the fog,
Your sons and daughters.

It's asking for the taking.
Trembling, shaking.
Oh, my heart is aching.

We're coming to the edge,
Running on the water,
Coming through the fog,
Your sons and daughters.

Let the river run,
Let all the dreamers
Wake the nation.

Come, the New Jerusalem!

Wow thanks for that. That was a well needed chuckle this evening. What fun to see that hair and hear such a good nostalgic song. Youtube is the best. Doesn't she have a large mouth.
