i know why the river runs lyrics – julie miller

when i reach to hold you
i’ll still be alone
when i hear the ringin of the telephone
i’ll think it is you
it will not be true
i know why the river runs
to a place somewhere far away
i know why the sky is cryin
when there aren’t any words to say
i could play the message that you left for me
i can hear your voice and i could still believe
that you will soon me home
but you will never come
i know why the river runs
to a place somewhere far away
i know why the sky is cryin
when there aren’t any words to say
there’s a silence that i don’t want to hear
there’s a hole now where my heart used to be
they say that healing comes in time
but i don’t know what that means

i lie here for so long
but you will never come
i know why the river runs
to a place somewhere far away
i know why the sky is cryin
when there aren’t any words to say
i know why the river runs
to a place somewhere far away
i know why the sky is cryin
when there aren’t any words to say
when there aren’t any words to say
when there aren’t any words to say
