A nearly perfect song.

From the record, The Turning.

River of Love Lyrics
“River of Love” was written by T-bone Burnett.

There’s a river of love that runs through all times
But there’s a river of grief that floods through our lives
It starts when a heart is broken in two
By the thief of belief in anything that’s true
But there’s a river of love that runs through all times

There’s a river of love that runs through all times
But there’s a river of tears that flows through our eyes
We fight through the night for freedom as it fades
Into a jail where we fail every time we make a break
But there’s a river of love that runs through all times

I had to run before I knew how to crawl
The first step was hard but I’ve had trouble with them all
Now the night grows darker and the day grows dim
‘Cause I know I never will see you again
And I almost made you happy

There’s a river of love that runs through all times
But there’s a river of fire that burns with no light
The flame is the pain of dreams gone up in smoke
From the lies we deny and we breathe until we choke
But there’s a river of love that runs through all time

Ms. Phillips has exceptional talent. Her and T-Bone are quite a team. Not only is she super talented vocally, she even has some screen credits. This may shock you, but I love it. You probably didn’t notice that Katya was the sweet Ms. Phillips:

Really though, the important part is that there is a river of love that flows through all time and all eternity.

Though the thief of belief will steal anything that’s true, though we fight through the night for freedom as it fades Into a jail where we fail every time we make a break, there is a river of love that runs through all time.

Love over all. Love is indispensable. Love is what matters, and this love has nothing to do with sex.
