Lyrics and music by Anna Rose Beck.

lyrics

Oh I found the place where the river ends
where a fiddler plays and the notes he bends
And the hangnail moon is faithful til the end
Oh I found the place where the river ends

Oh I found the place where the truth ceases to be
As the pages turn and the words begin to breathe
And a writer's heart within those pages beats
Oh I found the place where the truth ceases to be

Oh I found the tree where the lonely mockingbird
Sings songs through the night, songs that have no words
And there is no refrain, just one never-ending verse
Oh I found the tree with the lonely mockingbird

But there is one bridge I will have to cross alone
To the river's end, and then I will be home
And I hear that it is dangerous to look down as I go
Oh there is one bridge I will have to cross alone

Oh I found the place where true love stands next to me
One glowing light, and a voice so smooth and sweet
And forever I will grow, here in ecstasy
Oh I found the place where true love stands next to me

Oh I found the place where the blind man he can see
The sad man laughing, their burdens are released
And the night breathes as it rocks their cradle out to sea
Oh I found the place where the blind man he can see
