There is a river that runs
Over the ruins of old Kearsney Abbey
I went there today

And I took your hand in my hand
Where foundations remain but the walls no longer stand
And I heard you say

We're gone tomorrow but we're here today.

We watched the flight of the swans
That live on the lake by old Kearsney Abbey
They nest in the reeds

And we cast our bread on the waters
Someday it might come back to us but I'm not waiting
I have all I need

We're gone tomorrow but today we're free.

All of the paths we have walked
And all of the road we are still yet to travel
I'll walk them with you

And all of the threads of our lives
Woven so tight on the loom but soon to unravel
I know that it's true

We're gone tomorrow but today I have you.
