River Song

Lyrics: Eric Krasno, Terrapin Family Band
Music: Eric Krasno, Terrapin Family Band

Sung by Grahame Lesh with Phil Lesh and the Terrapin Family Band in November 2017. In a Reddit thread in 2018 Grahame Lesh said "We definitely want to write and play more originals with the Family Band. We’ve played I think 6 or 7 originals in the past year. Some of them, like The River Song & What She Said, we wrote as a band together with Eric Krasno." it appears in some setlists as "Dreaming Of The Other Side". The lyrics are hard to make out: any help gratefully received.

I wanted you to come and play the part
Across the ocean blue
I made a mess of what I thought I could be
And I'm afraid
Giving in to you
You'll see I'm strong

The search that I [?] you will see the sign
See how cowards lie
I followed through the storm and left at night
One more [?] I cried
All I know to do
Is run and hide

Welcome to the [world that once I owned]
Dreaming of the other side
I swim into the ocean sea below
Running down with the tide

Let the water call in on my eye
I can't say I knew what for
River ran through me just as thick as mud
I went to change into the [flow]
Only I knew
What I was waiting for

Welcome to the [world that once I owned]
Dreaming of the other side
I swim into the ocean sea below
Running down with the tide

When I look back and see the trouble I've had
All the wrong parts I did play
My only hope is one day I can return
Try and find another way
If I can suffer one more [?]
[Fear] can't get inside

Welcome to the [world that once I owned]
Dreaming of the other side
I swim into the ocean sea below
Running down with the tide

Welcome to the [world that once I owned]
Dreaming of the other side
I swim into the ocean sea below
Running down with the tide
