lyrics

SAME RIVER TWICE - written by Darryl Purpose

The water flows by this holy place and I am anointed here
But when I come back to get my fill I find it's disappeared
It's wound through these hills and these valleys
Past the most modest of my expectations 'Round the world in time

CHORUS:
You can't step into the Same River Twice
No you can't step into the Same River Twice

All we have are these moments and memories of moments we've had
And if I'd lost this song today, well I wouldn't feel too bad
Cause I remember that moment as real as the love in the air
And I might like to remember that moment, but I can't go back there

CHORUS:
You can't step into the Same River Twice
No you can't step into the Same River Twice

I know what happens when two people are as one
The heavens open when love has begun
I know what happens when all is said and done
We're left to contemplate and live in this new moment's sun
Love from this new moment on

INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

CHORUS:
You can't step into the Same River Twice
No you can't step into the Same River Twice
