Recently, I found a photo I had taken at Wild River in Maine. It brought back memories.

Lyrics: 

Wild River by Jessica Graae ©2019

We took a trip down to Wild River,

Followed the rocks and the grassy line.

We walked along in the clear water,

The photo’s crumbling in my mind

If I had known what we’d come to be,

I would have held my breath.

That one day we’d no longer be,

Only memories left.

Then we sat by the wild river,

Under the rusted iron bridge.

Yes, I knew I would love you forever.

Doesn’t matter what you did.

If I had known what we’d come to be,

I would have held my breath.

That one day we’d no longer be,

Only memories left.

Wild River, wash over me.

Wild River, flow eternally.

Now today down at Wild River,

I feel the rocks beneath my shoes.

Find my way up the high boulders,

But now I’m climbing without you.

If I had known what we’d come to be,

I would have held my breath.

That one day we’d no longer be,

Only memories left.

Wild River, wash over me.

Wild River, flow eternally.



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Haunting and beautiful. Wish I had better words to describe this, but it's incredibly touching. I was just listening at work and had to stop what I was doing to pay attention, because it really sucked me in. Smile

Very moving song, nicely set up by the guitar and delivered by that haunting vocal.

Spellbinding melody while finger style slowly excavates this buried memory.

Oh WOW STUNNING

what a beautiful story
you musically painted an image in my mind
I was just taking my coat off and found myself
paused and listening
I too wish I had the right words for this
it was amazing in my words

TAKE A BOW

You really drew me in and your voice and sparse performance kept me there. Super super song and very touching performance.
