From the release "Romance Like It Was".

Lyrics

There’s a girl at the borderline
The line between truth and lies
She’s traveled 500 miles or more
To stand before the river’s tide
The water’s cold but there’s salvation
And a chance to be free
And no laws will be broken
When the swelling is relieved
 
They gather along the river at night
Singing hopes and dreams till the morning light
Hundreds along the river tonight
Hear them sing across the river till the early light
 
HEY OH
 
There’s a girl at the riverbank
Holy Bible in her hand
Take the rod and part the waters
Take them to the Promised Land
On the north bank it looks so easy
From the south it looks so hard
The crowd is growing by the river
For the changing of the guard
