The River [American Idol Performance]
by Scotty McCreery



You know a dream is like a river
Ever changing as it flows
And a dreamer's just a vessel
That must follow where it goes
Trying to learn from what's behind you
And never knowing what's in store
Makes each day a constant battle
Just to stay between the shores

And I will sail my vessel
Till the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky
And I'll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
Till the river runs dry

Too many times we stand aside
And let the waters slip away
Till what we put off 'til tomorrow
It has now become today
So don't you sit upon the shorelines
And say you're satisfied
Choose to chance the rapids
And dare to dance the tide

Yes I will sail my vessel
Till the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky
I'll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
Till the river runs dry

There's bound to be rough waters
And I know I'll take some falls
With the good Lord as my cap'n
I can make it through them all
And I will sail my vessel
Till the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky

And I'll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
Till the river runs dry
Yes, I will sail my vessel
Till the river runs dry
