Track Name: Rivers Will Rise: a Winter song
Look to the sky and you’ll see where this storm can be found
Wondering why all the more this year will come down
Rivers will rise, mountains will be our home
Look to the sky, all the rain had to come from the storm

I think they’re telling us that we’re not taking care enough
I think they’re telling us that we’re not taking care enough
I think they’re telling us that we’re not taking care...

Rivers will rise and the mountains will be our home
What a demise all the rain that we’ve always known
Flooding the street, turning sidewalk to ocean floor
Look to the sky, we will be washed away by the storm

I think they’re telling us that we’re not taking care enough
I think they’re telling us that we’re not taking care enough
I think they’re telling us that we’re not taking care...

Rivers will rise, now sit back and watch it unfold... (repeat)

- K. Hikele, February 18th 2014
