River's Rising
Saturday, December 30, 2006

A song about River's troubles, as seen through Simon's eyes.


CATEGORY: FILK    TIMES READ: 2276    RATING: 9    SERIES: FIREFLY

I am a Lyricist/Songwriter at heart, and stories are a little "out of my range" most of the time. So here is my latest piece, dedicated to the Character of River Tam, as viewed by her Brother Simon..... It has a melody..... sort of.

************************************

River’s Rising

If you’d really like to see her

take a good look on the ground

at a broken shattered picture puzzle

scattered all around

She is screaming on the inside

from a hundred million fears

When I speak I’m sure she’s listening

but I’m not sure what she hears

River’s crying....

River’s crying....

River’s crying....

River's crying....

A flood of tears

She’s been broken into pieces

torn away from all she knows

Running scared down nightmare tunnels

never knowing where they go

How I wish that I could save her

But I don’t see what she sees

How I hope that she can find her way

to the place where she’ll be free

River’s flowing....

River’s flowing....

River’s flowing....

River's flowing....

Away from me

All I want is river’s happiness

And I long to see her smile

All I give to her is everything

And she makes it worth my while

When I see that she is struggling

Then I know that she’ll stand tall

I know that she wants to come home

And I’ll catch her if she falls

River’s rising....

River’s rising....

River’s rising....

River's rising....

Above it all

River's rising (River's crying)

River's rising (River's crying)

River's rising (River's crying)

River's rising (River's crying)

Above it all (A flood of tears)

River's rising (River's flowing)

River's rising (River's flowing)

River's rising (River's flowing)

River's rising (River's flowing)

Above it all (Away from me)

Rivers rising.... Above it all

Thank you, Wolfpoet and Blue Eyed Brigadier

I actually have Cedric's e-mail address. He liked the Serenity Filk, but never mentioned wanting it in any way. Don't believe he knows about this'un. I might e-mail him. Right now, I'm just gratified that this has gotten over a hundred reads in two days and such flattering comments. Thanks, Y'all, really!
