Find the river

Find The River
REM

[Verse 1]
Hey now, little speedyhead
The read on the speed-o-meter says
You have to go to task in the city
Where people drown and people serve
Don't be shy, your just desert
Is only just light years to go
Me, my thoughts are flower strewn
Ocean storm, bayberry moon
I have got to leave to find my way

[Chorus 1]
Watch the road and memorize
This life that pass before my eyes
Nothing is going my way

[Verse 2]
The ocean is the river's goal
A need to leave the water knows
We're closer now than light years to go
I have got to find the river
Bergamot and vetiver
Run through my head and fall away

[Chorus 1]

[Verse 3]
There's no one left to take the lead
But I tell you and you can see
We're closer now than light years to go

[Chorus 2]
Pick up here and chase the ride
The river empties to the tide
Fall into the ocean

[Verse 4]
The river to the ocean goes
A fortune for the undertow
None of this is going my way
There is nothing left to throw
Of Ginger, lemon, indigo
Coriander stem and rose of hay
Strength and courage overrides
The privileged and weary eyes
Of river poet search naiveté

[Chorus 2]
