>I’ve been thinking about sharing this song here for quite a while. It’s Garth Brooks and whilst he’s not really cool or big here I do have to say that he does have a talent for songs with a meaning and which make me think and feel and wonder. And relate to which is even better. One thing I think we are missing in the UK is music with a meaning, we don’t seem to have had any recently. But maybe I’m just missing it and it is actually there.

I feel a bit down today, have most of the day and this is another good song that helps with that.One thing I really like about this song is how it is so like my life – how I am trying to be and to live/view my life.

You know a dream is a like a river
Ever changing as it flows
And the 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
‘Til 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
‘Til the river runs dry

Too many times we stand aside
Let the waters slip away
‘Til what we put off ’til tomorrow
It has now become today
So don’t you sit upon the shoreline
And say you’re satisfied
Choose to chance the rapids
And dare to dance the tide… yes

I will sail my vessel
‘Til 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
‘Til the river runs dry

There’s bound to be rough waters
And I know I’ll take some falls
But with the good Lord as my captain
I can make it through them all…yes

I will sail my vessel
‘Til 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
‘Til the river runs dry

Yes I will sail my vessel
‘Til the river runs dry
‘Til the river runs dry

~The River, Garth Brooks
