ted’s river song lyrics – fighting gravity

(lyrics, music: peterson, triano)
you, when i close my eyes, open my eyes, realize, i think i would oblige
and if i tied my tongue together, smelled a rose and fell right on my
would it be the same, should i know your name
could you stay for just a while?
you, when i float downstream, buy the dream and touch the stream, i
think it would redeem
and if we drift away together filled our souls and lost all we control
would it disagree, should i wish to be?
could you guarantee a while
and help me down from this rope i’m walking
such a long, long way to fall
and if i see the edge of the morning
i got no expectations at all
so dance with me tonight
look at the sky, don’t lie, just, just tell me now if i should say
fortunate child, so wild, like the river washes sinners reconciled
would it fall apart, should i close my heart?
could you hold me for a while
we’re alive… we are
i can see all around me
you, when i close my eyes, open my eyes, realize, i think we can surmise
and if i’m gone too long, this song is all i’ve got to right this wrong
would it end the same, should i save your name?
would you laugh with me a while
like the breath of the night we all slip away
