« good and fulfilling | Main | i give up. »


carry me, Your love is wider than my need could ever be
come to me, i will walk along Your shoreline
feel Your crashing waves sing in time with the pounding of my heart

come down, pour out on me
come down, pour out on me

river deep, could i know You as well as You know me?
constantine, will we travel faster farther

than these legs could ever trustworthy be?

come down, pour out on me
come down, pour out on me...

i'm not sure what it is about this song, but i really like it. each time i hear it i'm struck by its beauty. the simple-yet-complicated drumset, the gentle guitars, the understated piano, the ethereal lyrics.

i'm one of those folks that has a rough time with poetry. to me, it just doesn't make sense... it seems unfinished. it needs music. [finger rolls on bongos don't count.]

on their own, i wouldn't be impressed much by these lyrics. but the music makes it just right.

it really didn't work? do you have winamp, or windows media player?

search "river constantine mp3" and see if you can get it. it's off jars' "if i left the zoo" cd. :)
