Lyrics

Words & Music by Brian Buller
Arranged by Brian Buller & Ryan Eston Paul

Somber steps, the young man takes
To the Summer River’s muddy banks
Before him flows so hushed and fair
A face of blossoms adrift in the River’s hair

Cottonwood alight
Such a sweet evening
Wishing for new life
In this sweet evening

In but a whisper, the young man speaks
To the Summer River’s stalks and reeds
To him comes in prickling skin
An answer in truth given to him

I hear you tonight
In this sweet evening
Wishing for new life
In this sweet evening

In drowning emotion, he falls to his knees
In a pool at the edge, his tears he leaves
In cupped hands, his face is washed
Away with sadness, away with loss
Away with sadness, away with loss

Now there’s, vine-like arms of stone-speckled skin
The Summer River embraces him
Around him flows so hushed and fair
A face of blossoms adrift in the River’s hair

I hear you tonight in this sweet evening
Wishing for new life in this sweet evening
I hear you tonight in this sweet evening
I give you new life with this sweet evening
I hold you tonight, with this sweet…
I give you new life, with this sweet…


Commentary by BB:
A young man lost in his troubles and considering
the worst is drawn to a river’s edge. There he
encounters a benevolent creature of the
Otherworld, who offers him redemption and
renewal amid the splendor and wonder of
the Natural World.
