Originally written for a festival of the same name to celebrate the chalk stream running through the town of Newmarket. Chalk streams are fairly rare habitats and the festival was designed to raise awareness to try to improve its conservation. The song was performed by the Newmarket Community Choir to open the festival in 2024 and this version has the Wolfen Mill Songwriting Retreat Choir adding the chorus with Pino Piletto's electric guitar solo.

Lyrics

Crossing rivers of darkness
That flow through the night
Until each new sunrise
Paints the water bright
Midnight currents uncover
Worries kept out of sight
Got to wait for the morning
To bring rivers of light

Counting streams of sadness
Filled with silent tears
Until the glowing dawn rays
Make them disappear
Twilight hides the difference
Between wrong and right
So, I'm going to swim in
The rivers of light

Don't lose sight of your dream
When the water's high
Don't lose sight of your dream
Keep your eyes on the sky

Don't lose sight of your dream
When the tide is high
Don't lose sight of your dream
Raise your eyes to the sky

Crossing rivers of darkness
That flow through the night
Until each new sunrise
Paints the water bright
Midnight currents uncover
Worries kept out of sight
I'm going to wait for
The rivers of light
Going to wait 'til the morning
Brings those rivers of light
