lyrics

By the Euphrates
There wept a girl for a thousand days
A thousand tears for a thousand fears she’d held inside
By the Nile
There stood a boy with a certain smile
For a certain girl in a certain world he’d left behind

Trickling water, bring my love to me
Away, away over hill and desert you flow to sea
Trickling water, bring my love to me
Away, away over hill and desert you flow to sea

By the Tigris
There grows a yellow iris
Toward the sun, toward the one who put it there
By the Jordan
A war is fought for freedom
And a weeping girl puts a yellow iris
On a smiling boy’s grave

Trickling water, bring my love to me
Away, away over hill and desert you flow to sea
Trickling water, bring my love to me
Away, away over hill and desert you flow to sea
