If Only You Could Talk
Mighty river_I stand in awe watching you moving so fast
I wish you could tell me all the secrets of your past
How many lovers embraced here under starry skies
With a smiling moon shining in their loving eyes.
Mighty river's secrets will always be kept
About happy lovers together or sad ones who wept
When they realized their love didn't feel the same_
Mighty river perhaps long ago a lover gave you your name.
Mighty River if only you could talk...
