LYRICS:

BECCA
LOOK AT ME. I’M SHAKING. I’M SO AWAKE.
I’M THINKING OF MAKING A HUGE MISTAKE.
WHAT’S A CRUSH WORTH, BECCA?

LOOK AT ME FORGETTING. MY LIFE IS SET.
I’M TREMBLING, I’M SWEATING.
I’M NOT DEAD YET.
WHAT’S A CRUSH WORTH, BECCA?
BECCA BE STRONG.

SANDY
RIVER LIKE LIFE. SANDY LIKE STONE.
I SINK TO THE BOTTOM. I WEIGH DOWN MY WIFE.
I NEVER CAME INTO MY OWN.
FROM THE RIVERBED, I WATCH MY LIFE FLOW BY.

IT’S PASSING FAST. I KNOW AT LAST,
I WASN’T MEANT TO BE A STONE.
REBECCA, HANG IN THERE.
I’LL PULL FREE, I SWEAR.

RIVER LIKE LIFE. SANDY LIKE BOAT.
I’LL CUT THROUGH THE WATERS OF STRUGGLE AND STRIFE.
YES, SANDY IS GOING TO FLOAT!
FROM THE RIVER BANK, YOU WATCH WHAT I CAN DO.
BEC, WATCH ME MOVE.
I’M GOING TO PROVE I WASN’T MEANT TO BE A STONE.
REBECCA, HANG IN HERE. STAY AND HELP ME STEER.

BECCA
LOOK AT ME. I’M CRYING. I DON’T KNOW WHY.
I’M TRYING, I’M TRYING TO MAKE THIS DIE.
WHAT’S A CRUSH WORTH, BECCA?
BECCA BE STRONG. WRONG IS WRONG.
BUT GOD! THIS IS THE FIRST THING I’VE FELT IN SO LONG!

SANDY
RIVER LIKE LIFE

BECCA
BECCA BE STRONG!

SANDY
SANDY BALLOON. I’LL CLIMB TO THE HEAVENS.
I’LL LIFE UP MY WIFE-REBECCA SO HIGH AND SO SOON!
SEE THE RIVER SO SMALL!
I WON’T LET YOU FALL.
REBECCA, STAY WITH ME.
