 C                        F            C
They're floating downstream like swans in the sun
G             F           C
Surrounded by friends and lovers
   C                      F          C
We watched on with smiles beaming so bright
F          G              F         C
The river behind them, the fading daylight
 G                   F            C
I knew her back from when she was young
C                     F           G
Those days poured out faster than rounds from a gun
G                         F           C
Scattered like shells and lost to the sea
C                   F         G
Like the river, the days move rapidly

  C                          F               C
I have all these memories, I don't know what for
  G             F       C
I have them and I can't help it
C                 F              C
Some overflow and spill out like waves
F           G           F         C
Some I will harbour for all of my days
  G                      F           C
I burned liked wood, you grew like a flower
C                  F         G
Rising toward your magical hour
G                   F            C
I was not yours and you were not mine
C             F        G
Our true love finds us when it is time

  C                     F          C
We drove back downtown, wasted and spent
     G        F       C
Down highways that I remember
C                 F         C
Happy for her and happy for me
    F         G       F        C
The old times and the new to uncover
  G                     F             C
I laid down my head, in love with the night
C                               F       G
With my new love beside me, her radiant light
  G           F             C
I faded away, along with my thoughts
C                  F         G
Like a dream and I trail off mystically
