Lyrics

she said, "I love you only"
and he said, "I love you too"
he said, "I'll meet you by the river
and we'll run away by the light of the summer moon"

she waited by the water, sometimes it flowed with tears
and the people, Lord, they shook their heads
as the weeks turned into years
but she never really doubted that someday he'd make good
he'd come down to the river if he could

it's a story about trust and it's a story about faith
it's a story about how someone can bend but never break
though there's every indication she's been sold a pack of lies
there is hope as long as she don't learn to read between the lines

now we're all standing by the water, and sometimes it seems hard
cause the government and bureaucrats have promised us the stars
and we've never really doubted it, that someday they'd make good
they'd come down to the river if they could

now we're still waiting by the river, and we've been here for years
while the Priests and Corporados have all played upon our fears
but let me tell you something people, and listen to me good
they'd never come down to the river even if they could

and She said, "I love you only"
and he said, "I love you too"
he said, "I'll meet you by the river
and we'll run away by the light of the summer moon"

well she waited by the water, at least an hour or two
till she could wait no longer, nor stare up at the moon
"I've got a live to live tomorrow, and this is how it's gonna be
if he comes down to the river he can wait for me"
