Lyrics

The light was fading fast 
The night was coming in 
And the moon came up 
Sailing on the river of dreams 
Then you held my hand
And took me in mid stream
To the borders
Of another world it seemed

Down by the river
On a winter’s afternoon 
In the twilight hour
My love and I did roam 
Sweet words were spoken 
Beneath the stars above 
As we sailed away
Down the river of love

Just let the river flow 
Wherever it needs to be 
For tonight the world
Is a warm sweet mystery 
The world is strange indeed 
And mysteries abound
Like the sky full of stars
High above this muddy ground

Down by the river
On a winter’s afternoon 
In the twilight hour
My love and I did roam 
Sweet words were spoken 
Beneath the stars above 
As we sailed away
Down the river of love
