lyrics

I've been wandering on this gravel road
I've been feeling like a worn out stone
Sitting in the desert sand alone
Turn to dust and ashes on my own

I dreamed I was a little mockingbird
Taking hold of each and every word
Singing just exactly what I heard
I dreamed I was a little mockingbird

Come back, come back, oh, wild river
Come back, come back to me
Come back, come back, oh wild river
Come back, come back to me

I hate the feeling of just letting go
Letting go when I don't really know
Where I'm going how long I'll be gone
Hoping that I don't do something wrong

Come back, come back, oh, wild river
Come back, come back to me
Come back, come back, oh wild river
Come back, come back to me

I came across a little mockingbird
I listened to her each and every word
I didn't sing along as I had planned
I turned to dust and ashes in her hand
I turned to dust and ashes in her hand
I turned to dust and ashes in her hand
