Susan Clark: Inspirational Music

River's Bend

(Susan Clark)
October 3, 2009
Music & Lyrics by Susan Clark

Wrote this after a misguided hike along the beautiful Chama River.  Wandered around in the forest for a while and when I found my way back, I landed right by the banks of the river.

River’s Bend

 

LIKE WATER I WAS DRAWN TO YOU

I KEPT ON WALKIN’ ‘TIL I MADE IT THROUGH

THE BRAMBLES AND THE WEEDS

JUST TO SIT QUITLEY ATOP YOUR CROOKED KNEE

LIKE A CHILD I WAS LOST

UNTIL I FOUND YOUR RIVER’S BEND

WHILE LOOKIN’ IN YOUR DEEP BLUE EYES

I FOUND THE STRENGTH TO RENEW AGAIN

 

OH AND BABY, I CAN’T BEGIN TO EXPLAIN

HOW YOU CHANGED MY LIFE

YOU MADE ME WANNA TRY AND LOVE AGAIN

 

LIKE A CHILD I WAS LOST

UNTIL I FOUND YOUR RIVER’S BEND

AND I SWEAR ON THE MAGPIE’S WING

I’M NEVER GONNA STRAY AGAIN

 

(INSTRUMENTAL INTERLUDE)

 

YOU AND I WILL GET THROUGH THIS

DON’T ASK ME WHEN OR WHY

WITH SOME HELP FROM UP ABOVE WE’LL FIND THE STRENGTH TO TRY

I HEAR HE CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS SO HE CAN SURELY MOVE MY HEART

YOU’RE HIS INSTRUMENT OF FAITH

SENT HERE TO HELP ME MAKE A NEW START

 

LIKE WATER I WAS DRAWN TO YOU

YOU KNOW I KEPT ON WALKIN’ ‘TIL I MADE IT THROUGH

THE BRAMBLES AND THE WEEDS

JUST TO SIT QUIETLY ATOP YOUR CROOKED KNEE

LIKE A CHILD I WAS LOST

UNTIL I HEARD YOUR RIVER’S SONG

AND IT WAS THERE BETWEEN THE NOTES OF THE MELODY

I FOUND A PLACE WHERE I BELONG

 

IT’S IN THE STRENGTH OF YOUR ARMS

THE WARMTH OF YOUR SMILE

THE SOFTNESS OF YOUR KISS

MY SOUL HAS BEEN LONGING JUST FOR THIS

 

LIKE A CHILD I WAS LOST

UNTIL I FOUND YOUR RIVER’S BEND

I SWEAR ON THE MAGPIE’S I’M NEVER GONNA STRAY AGAIN
