The River

It is almost impossible to find an original Garth song on YouTube. And I mean "original" in that HE is the one singing it. I miss new albums from him.
This song has always been a go to song when I need a reminder to keep plugging along. I'm not feeling that way. I'm feeling more along the lines of The Dance but I couldn't find a good video with him actually singing it.
I have struggled a lot this year. I have been thrown into situations that have shaken the foundation upon which I have built me. I have had statements made and actions against me that caused me to feel shame about what I've been through to get to where I am. I have doubted my own sanity. My own worth.
But today, this Blessed New Moon energy with accompanying Solar Eclipse, I'm proclaiming the resurgence of me. You can join me on the river or simply wave when I pass by.
 
 
"The River"
 
You know a dream is like a river
Ever changin' as it flows
And a dreamer's just a vessel
That must follow where it goes
Trying to learn from what's behind you
And never knowing what's in store
Makes each day a constant battle
Just to stay between the shores...

And, I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky
I'll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry

Too many times we stand aside
And let the waters slip away
'Til what we put off 'til tomorrow
Has now become today
So don't you sit upon the shoreline
And say you're satisfied
Choose to chance the rapids
And dare to dance the tide...

Yes, I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky
I'll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry

There's bound to be rough waters
And I know I'll take some falls
But with the good Lord as my captain
I can make it through them all...

Yes, I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky
I'll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry

Yes, I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry
'Til the river runs dry
