(14 measure intro)

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
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.

And 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.
