Lyric Fire: River of Love

The following is an excerpt from my novel, Letters to Chyna. It’s a song that was written by the lead character Chyna Rose.

You came to me in a dream, awakening me

from the storms of my life

I want to reach out to you and

let your sweet love surround me

but I can’t stop holding on to my pride

 

I never knew love could be like a river

Flowing sweetly down the banks of time

I wish my love could flow as freely as wine

(Flow sweet like wine, ooooh…)

 

(Chorus)

I wish you could read my heart thoughts

I want you to teach me the ways of love

Take me in your arms and calm my storm

Tell me the secrets that flow in your river of love

 

Just like a miracle, the hurt

And heartache I’ve been through

Slowly dissipates into oblivion,

whenever I think of you

I never knew love could be like a river

washing me clean and leaving my soul satisfied

As sure as there is a God above

I need to know the secrets that

flow in your river of love

 

(Chorus 2)

River of love-you flow so sweet

you make my heart skip two beats yeah

river of love you’re tantalizing me

making me fall, I don’t know how to be

 

Your aura, your presence is magnificent

you make me feel like I’ve never felt

spent, yet filled with energy

you make me melt

I could go all night with you

 

I never knew love could be like a river

taking me places I’ve never been

bringing into view things I’ve never seen

I feel as helpless as a dove

I’d like to drown in your river of love
