    Lovers Across The River

    It was a long while ago
    since I left my village
    There’s been no word
    no traveller with news –
    and I am dying for any song
    from the girl I left behind

    It's been some time ago
    Since that boy left me behind
    Where he is, nobody knows
    There's been no news to find
    I would like to just sing him one more song
    About how he's the boy that I've loved for so long
    Maybe he'll come to me, in my dreams
    But in reality, he's nowhere it seems...

    The day’s work offers diversion
    but the quiet evening
    brings back the pain
    How is she now
    the one I left behind?
    I see her still in my mind –
    across the river
    and she would not wave goodbye

    I regret not waving to him
    On that dreadful final goodbye
    I wonder if he thinks of me
    On that last day, did he see me cry?
    Daily chores and family
    Offer me some solace
    But nothing feels the same
    As when him and I were US

    Staring at this glassy water,
    Our eternal hearts divide
    Do you stare at the same moon’s reflection
    From the other side?
    I hope you find my love one day
    Floating across this wayward water
    Until then, I will pray
    Our hearts are broken no longer
