I must be looking for something 
Something sacred I lost 
But the river is wide 
And it’s too hard to cross 

And even though I know the river is wide 
I walk down every evening and I stand on the shore 
And try to cross to the opposite side 
So I can finally find out what I’ve been looking for 

In the middle of the night 
I go walking in my sleep 
Through the valley of fear 
To a river so deep 

And I’ve been searching for something 
Taken out of my soul 
Something I would never lose 
Something somebody stole 

I don’t know why I go walking at night 
But now I’m tired and I don’t want to walk anymore 
I hope it doesn’t take the rest of my life 
Until I find what it is that I’ve been looking for…

– The River of Dreams, Billy Joel
