about

I had the great honour of co-writing The River with author Beth Kempton whose incredible, powerful new book ‘The Way of the Fearless Writer’ comes out Oct 6th! Our experience is beautifully documented within its pages. Here are some words from Beth:

"A song about the ups and downs and great miracle of life.

Co-writing this was a joyous experience but it started off as a kind of dare I set myself when writing ‘The Way of the Fearless Writer’. I asked what would be the scariest kind of writing I could try and the answer was songwriting, so I had a go, and here we are.

Thanks to Danni’s incredible talent and generosity, I give you...THE RIVER, created in London, Southampton and Nashville TN"

Enjoy! x

lyrics

Just when I think I’m doing okay
It starts raining
Just when I think I’m finally on my way
The way starts changing.
I’m on a quest to find
The reason and rhyme
Life’s a mystery
How d’ya do it right?

There’s a river running through you
And it’ll flow ‘til the end of time
You’ve gotta trust in
The way it’s going
Let the river lead you home.

I spend my time worrying that
Time’s running out
My greatest fear is having regrets
So I’m frozen in doubt
I’m on a quest to find
A way out of my mind.
Life’s a mystery
How d’ya do it right?

There’s a river running through you
And it’ll flow ‘til the end of time
You’ve gotta trust in
The way it’s going
Let the river lead you home.

Every moment’s a chance to change your world
Every moment’s a chance to change
Change your world

There’s a river running through you
And it’ll flow ‘til the end of time
You’ve gotta trust in
The way it’s going
Let the river lead you home.

You’ve gotta trust in…
Let the river lead you home.
