lyrics

there’s a boy by the river
he’s at war with the world
he feels cold and alone

so he calls to his mother
saying ‘mother i can’t figure out what’s going on

all this water keeps rolling down the river
and the river won’t stop rolling along’

‘boy there’s a shield in the sky
and this shield will protect you when you feel this way

to this shield you cannot lie for this shield is inside you
it’s always been this way

so when you’re standing on the edge of the plateau
as you leap the fear you feel will go

because you’re coming out like a thousand mountains
you’re coming out like a hole in the sky
you’re coming out like a silver dagger
like you’re dancing in the northern lights
i can see you dancing in the northern lights’

now there’s a boy by the river
and he knows that those he’s loved are on the other side

so he calls to his mother
saying ‘mother can you hear me
i’m alive i’m alive

in the water that keeps rolling down the river
and the river won’t stop rolling by

i’m coming out like a thousand mountains
i’m coming out like a hole in the sky
i’m coming out like a silver dagger
i come dancing in the northern lights
can you see me dancing in the northern lights
mother i’ll be dancing in the northern lights’
