from by Jelena Ciric



The first light of the morning,
the last star to appear,
the smile that made your smile come out and show,
the bags you packed so heavy,
the worries on your shoulder,
the hand that led you where you had to go,

will be carried away by the river.

The first song that we sang,
the last dance that we danced,
the flowers that I laid upon your stone,
the coldest of the mountains,
the darkest of the valleys,
the bridges we can only cross alone,

will be carried away by the river.

Like Regina Spektor meets Joni Mitchell with a healthy dose of Serbian folk, Jelena Ćirić's fresh, original sound pays homage to the rich, traditional music of Serbia, where she was born, and the songwriting tradition of Canada, where she grew up.
