Reed in the River Tapani Rauha/Robert George © 2004 BMI

The rum was smooth and the rushes thick
By that April riverbed
Where water ignites wild roses
Till they burn damnation red
I wondered while watchin’
That stream run by so free
Should I make somethin’ of my life
Or hope life makes somethin’ of me

Like a reed in the river
That bends with the flow
Where the tides of fortune took me
Was where I was bound to go
Like a reed in the river
That bends with the flow
Where the tides of fortune took me
Was where I was bound to go


Somehow both the false and the fair
Found homes in my true love’s heart
When she kissed me with those passions
I couldn’t tell them apart
So I stumbled long before I learned
Beauty is that kind of star
That’s best seen by sailors of dreams
And born fools from afar

Like a reed in the river
That just ignores the day
I tried to forget my pain
Hopin’ it would go away
Like a reed in the river
That just ignores the day
I tried to forget my pain
Hopin’ it would go away


Some roses surely rub their thorns
Till they bleed petals soft n red
Like poets that slash at their own lives
To bleed pages till their dead
But I saw no reason to sacrifice
Life to succeed
My heart won’t dwell on its wants
Cos it has what it needs

Like a reed in the river
With roots far below
It may look weak beneath the surface
That’s where it did grow
Like a reed in the river
With roots far below
It may look weak beneath the surface
That’s where it did grow
