God River Waltz

from by Calla Kinglit



The album is underway! This song is a taste of what we are working on. More to come soon.

All funds go right back into recording- $1 is awesome! If you would like to make a larger contribution to my recording without breaking the bank, consider purchasing the song for the price of your last cup of coffee. Happy listening!


God River Waltz

you were an ocean that I tried to cross
and I was a desert where we both got lost for a lifetime
we broke apart like a cliff after winter
there ain't no ice to keep us a mountain no more

the river has a voice like a sweet mandolin
she sounds like a bird that has two broken wings
there ain't nowhere she'll go
there ain't no place that she'll go that the shoreline don't know

aa-ooh you were an ocean, I was a desert
aa-ooh you were an ocean I tried to cross

god is a twisted and weathered pine
we cut its branches and built us a fire that gave no warmth at all
gave no warmth at all
the wood was the green of a northern river
we poured gasoline on this life and burnt it to ash

aa-ooh you were an ocean, I was a desert
aa-ooh you were an ocean I tried to cross
