i stood and watched my daddy die no-one could help his plight cos he was trying to save our home on the day that the river river rose well it came alive I heard them say there was nothing we can do as he washed away running from the heart of it right into the cause of it running from the heart of it i'm a man now but I'm only 7 well its been hard since daddy went to heaven We're stayin' now my mumma said and he worked his land his life was spent running from the heart of it right into the cause of it running from the heart of it right into the cause of it running from the heart of it right into the cause of it running from heart hey why don'tyou follow me late at night we'll go down down to the river where the moon is bright and we can wash our sorrow down underneath that shining brown we'll be sitting in the still night air can't you feel our daddy there? life and death and all this power underneath these these shining stars running from the heart of it right into the cause of it running from the heart of it right into the cause of it running from the heart of it right into the cause of it running from heart, heart, heart you give us strength, while we talk
