Walk through the city without wanting
What lovers want of wanter's will
Out past the river where it's winding
We made our home upon it still

They told us wait till we were ready
When ready age is set to go
But through the battle cold and bloody
We set our feet on river's snow

I know we've been a little zealous
Rushing into wind without a gauge
But love it came without warning
So we found no need to slow the rain

Out of the river came a snowfall
Building a sheet o'er Autumn's grave
The fell my heart with a snowflake
And winter came with summer's thrill

Out where the water meets the hills edge
We once set our sights on solid gold
But when we ever got to dreaming
We found what's lost was never sold
