Lyrics With Lauren: Smooth Stone Edition.

God, I want the rough edges to go away...

River God by nichole nordeman.
from the album Wide Eyed.

Rolling River God
Little Stones are smooth
Only once the water passes through
So I am a stone rough and grainy still
Trying to reconcile this river's chill

But when I close my eyes and feel you rushing by
I know that time brings change and change takes time
And when the sunset comes
my prayer would be just this one
that you might pick me up and notice
that I am just a little smoother in your hand

Sometimes raging wild
sometimes swollen high
never have I known this river dry
The deepest part of you is where I want to stay
and feel the sharpest edges wash away
