Gently We Row Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

When my soul crashed into my body
Falling into consciousness
That's when my mind began this illusion
Of taking it step after step

I looked into mother's eyes
I said tell me what I should believe
She drew me a room with a light
Said just turn it off when you leave

Slow, slow, this river is slow
We're all out here all on our own
Row, row, gently we row
And one day we'll find our way home

Step after step, they drew me a town
They drew me a fear and a need
They drew me a God and they drew me some money
Hiding the truth far from me

I asked the cool firelight
Tell me what I should believe
They gave me a song and they gave me a dance
And said, sleep now, your pain we'll relieve

Slow, slow, this river is slow
And we're all out here all on our own
Row, row, gently we row
And one day we'll find our way home

I have stumbled and crawled, I beg to know why
I've been ashamed when I've chosen to lie
In all of this darkness I have searched for a light
To come and find me and when I found me

I wrapped my arms 'round my own daughter
As she fell into her place and time
And as her mind creates her illusions
I won't complicate hers with mine

She looked into her mother's eyes
She said tell me what I should believe
And I drew her a door and I drew her a key
And I said when you're ready can you come and find me
And we'll walk out of here and tomorrow will be a new day

Slow, slow, this river is slow
And you are never out here on your own, no
Row, row, gently we row
Oh, and together we'll find our way

Slow, slow, this river is slow
And life is not what it seems
Row, row, gently we row
The truth is it's only a dream
