Standing by the river i wonder
Do i need a stone?
No my heart is heavy enough
It will drag me down for sure
Standing by the river i smile
will i miss it all?
I'll be glad to leave it behind and never come back
Standing by the river i close my eyes one jump and i'm there
Someone jumped after me he will never be my friend
Standing by the river i'm thinking
will i jump again?
I'll float like a feather far away from here.
