Lyrics

They say the Mississippi River, has a mind of her own,
As she travels through the heartland, moving rocks and stone.
She may jump her banks, and change her course drastically,
After she meanders, she will find her way back to the sea.
Pre-Chorus
From castles to ruins, they crumble and fall,
This was not what I planned at all... for my life.
Chorus
Flow river flow, show me where to go,
After everything changes, flow river flow.

Tried to build a levy, tried to build a wall,
Tried to civilize the river of my soul.
The water just keeps rising, carries me away.
Can I just stop fighting it, and learn how to pray.
From castles to ruins, they crumble and fall,
This was not what I planned at all... for my life.
Flow river flow, show me where to go,
After everything changes, flow river flow.

If you follow the map of your heart
Where you need to be, is right where you are
Flow river flow, show me where to go,
After everything changes, flow river flow.
Flow river flow, show me where to go,
After everything changes, flow river flow.
