Lyrics

THE RIVER

The rain comes down tonight

It drowns my world and hides my pain

I couldn’t make it right

A passion I could not sustain

The clouds roll in and then it starts

The river rises in my heart

If you could look at me

It should be plain to see that

The tears that fill my eyes

Are the ones I shed for

The memory of our love

A feeling like no other

So baby turn away

As my heart cries out for you

The water fills my soul

Perhaps to wash away my sin

The struggle to be whole

The hope redemption will begin

I raise my hands for help from Heaven

But darkness comes it rains again – comin’ down again

Despair has left me blind

The river runs and races

Erodes the stone that I

Once thought was my heart

If you could hear my voice

You’ll hear the song I’m singing

So baby close this door

And you’ll see no more of me

If I dry my tears

I would see your face once again

If I face my fears

I would see your eyes, and

Hear you cry, and

Feel your sadness too

So baby say goodbye

If it’s not now, it’s never

No need to see me cry and prolong this sadness

Don’t even need to try

Our story ends forever

I’ll leave my heart behind

And I will not follow

So turn your eyes from me

It’s time to walk away now

Too late to try again

And to find redemption

Let go of what we had

And let me take a last look

And let this river run

As it takes my heart from you

So baby say goodbye

If it’s not now, it’s never

No need to see me cry and prolong this sadness

Don’t even need to try

Our story ends forever

I’ll leave my heart behind

And I will not follow you

 

And I will not follow you
