watching the river go by lyrics – cameron daddo

as i write this letter; i can hear the river
runnin’ by the back door, whispering a dream
you’re somewhere in the night sky
high above the ocean
flying across the dateline
i hope you get some sleep
as you move, as you fly, think of me watching
the river go by
i’m no good at saying goodbye, so h*llo
from the river and i
i’m not an easy father, i never have been
i’m a little like this country- my story runs deep
i used to tie your laces, carry you on my shoulders
i held you after bad dreams, and rocked you back to sleep
so as you move, as you fly, think of me watching
the river go by
i’n no good at saying goodbye
so h*llo fromn the river and i
you’re so far away making a life of your own
i’m amazed by what you’ve done
you’re so far away in a world i’ll never know
i’m amazed by you my son
so as you move, as you fly, think of me
watching the river go by
i’m no good at saying goodbye
