River is Leila Neverland's second back-to-back single released December 1st, 2020. The first of the two singles is Never Give Up, released the day before on November 30th, 2020.

River was written in a hot summer of touring throughout BC and into Alberta, in 2019.

It is about freedom, and the freedom to be.

I want to strengthen the Ecological and Cultural Diversity that exists right here by supporting and listening to the people who know this place best in a time of great need:

50% of River's sales will go toward the Syilx Language House for all that they offer their present and future communities.

"Learning N̓syilxčn̓ is our act of reconciliation and resistance and strengthens our families, health of our communities, our youth, Syilx Nation, land-based knowledge, and expresses our title and rights. We do this for the people-to-be." -thelanguagehouse.ca

I believe in Inclusivity, Accessibilty, and Diversity. And I believe in nourishing my local community. For it is literally the tangible place within which I exist, the place that supports my walking feet, and the place I can personally observe and celebrate.

Did you know:

"N̓syilxčn̓ is an Interior Salish language and is critically endangered with fewer than 40 fluent Elders remaining." -thelanguagehouse.ca

Through all these current state of affairs, an inclination toward these pillars of social justice are all but going the wayside. Quickly, I might add.

I am humbly grateful to have been offered this song up through this place, up and out for each of us. Gratitude to you for taking this moment.

Enjoy RIVER!!! May it help us mourn all we have lost, and give us the strength we need to move forward.

With love, light, warmth, and gratitude,

Leila Neverland

It's time to go down to the river.
Time to sit amongst them stones.
It's time to leave your worries,
far away at home.

It's time to go down to the forest,
just to sit amongst them trees.
It's time to climb a mountain,
stand like a star in the breeze.

Do you remember, what it feels like to be free?
Do you remember, what it feels like to be?

It's time to go down the river.
Just to sit amongst them plants.
Time to remember She's a giver
and give this Earth one more chance.

Do you remember, what it feels like to be free?
Do you remember, what it feels like to be?
