G                                      C/G G
I don't know what to say
                     D/G         Em                +7  
I don't know where the light shines
        C                                Em   
It's a grey dawn rising on a green hill
                   D                        Dsus4  
And there's so much behind us

I don't know where we go
I sure feel there's something out there
There's a great awakening and a new morning
And your spirit's pounding loud and clear

If the river can bend
I'll find you waiting
G                                Dm   
Home at last from the wild sea
All the twists and turns
We've made together
All the boats you rocked
                G      D
With your harmony
Cm/Eb                       Ab
If the river can bend
         Bb/D              Gm
If the river can bend
Cm                       Ab
If the river can bend
If the river can bend

Come and embrace the struggle
But win or lose we live here
Build a new beginning on an old rock
Breathe deep of the sweet fresh air
