The River And The Stars

Don't go crazy and don't be lazy
You must move yourself
To the river and the stars
And cherish the angel
For she will care for you
And she will move you too
To the river and the stars

Now learn the lessons well
And hold on to their spell
And when the sun comes up
Just get up and go
And cross these fields
And climb these stiles
And take the old path
To the river and the stars

Spring turned back to winter
The swallows barely seen
Winter flowed to autumn
I drifted in a dream
Then as the year turned
I felt my heart yearn, once more

So be the days and moments
And be the real work
Stay away from empty rooms
Where old temptations lurk
And if today is fine
Tomorrow has no claim to make
