Slowly Rivers Turn Lyrics - The Tallest Man On Earth


There's a sky when you run
And there's a sky when you surrender
You're so warm
The tangle of your thorns
But your hands, they know
It only hurts
When in the hour you remember you're the child
In the tangle of your mind

You light up from a whisper telling how
I never found the way around myself I listen now

I looked for waking worlds
And no restraint in singing voices of my friends
A rising with no end
Along the sweep of words
I run my eyes
And see my old skin floating gently somewhere far
I wonder who we are

A light up from a whisper telling how
I never knew the captain's skill but, oh
I wonder now

Slowly rivers turn
When love is out
Slowly rivers turn

A light up from a whisper telling how
I never found my way down to the shore I listen now

And I don't want to be the yeller of my longings
I don't want to be the sailor of my past
I don't want to be the band the plays the wedding
With a new leaving song on their mind
I got to try

Slowly rivers turn
When love is out
Slowly rivers turn

A light up from a whisper telling how
I never knew the captain's skill but, oh
I get it now

You light up from a whisper telling how
I never found a way around myself
