Lyrics
I was raised - by a river - nearly drowned until I learned to float
I've been swimming upstream - like a salmon boat

Knew that I was a loner - from the very minute I was born
And the emptiness bleeds - where my heart was torn

CHORUS - Never knew which way to turn or I'd surely go
But the moment I began - I was on my own - all alone

River's dark and so lonely - like the cold I feel within my soul
But it washes clean - never takes control

Though I'm lost and I'm broken - slipping further down the banks of clay
There's no reason to worry - soon I'll fade away

CHORUS - If I knew which way to turn I'd surely go
From the moment I began - I was on my own

Now I wait - by the river - one way or other it will get me home
And it calls to me - as the winds do blow

I will sail - on that river - far as forever and I'll never know
Where the end will be - as the water flows

CHORUS - If I knew which way to turn I'd surely go
From the moment I began - I was on my own - all alone - all alone.
