Savor the Wine

Have you ever been thirsty like summertime’s ripening vines?
With those berries so fanciful, come the taste long before the bite?
And all of it’s glory raining, down on this old town tonight
and I’m talkin’ ’bout

I’m talkin’ bout Raisin’ the River
Sweet water come and cause me to shiver
Ain’t no one around, ‘cept you and me
Take body and soul and head for the heart of the undertow
River runnin’ over —Let’s Savor the Wine
River runnin’ over —Let’s Savor the Wine

Like a wave rollin’ over, you offer it no resistance at all
So you float on the surface,
letting each current blanket the distance you fall
and into that long lost Eden, answering your beck and call
and I’m talkin’ ‘bout

I’m talkin’ bout Raisin’ the River
Sweet water come and cause me to shiver
Ain’t no one around, ‘cept you and me
Take body and soul and head for the heart of the undertow
River runnin’ over —Savor the Wine
River runnin’ over —Savor the Wine

It’s eternally primal,
So like a baptismal tonight
Your cup runneth over
A stormy reminder
To dive in the River
And swim till the thunder subsides

And all of it’s glory raining down on this old town tonight
and I’m talkin’ bout
