time to cross that river lyrics – magnum

when the black queen begins to play
strong and lonely
don’t look away
’cause there’s nowhere she can’t go
she won’t tell ya
and you won’t know

and now it’s time to cross that river
and show your feelings just before you depart
you know it’s real
you must consider
no good remainin’ so hold back the tears
don’t ever give up the fight

now the white king shakes in fear
by his castle
they draw near
it’s a story we all know
and it’s somewhere
we can’t go

and now it’s time to cross that river
and show your feelings just before you depart
you know it’s real
you must consider
no good remainin’ so hold back the tears
don’t ever give up the fight

i really thought we’d come together
but once again there’s somethin’ tears us apart
you know that it could get much better
heroes we’ve seen come and go thru’ the years
nothin’ is just black & white
