Sheryl Crow Riverwide Lyrics

Last updated:

I spent a year in the mouth of a whale
With a flame and a book of signs.
You'll never know how hard I've failed
Trying to make up for lost time.

Once I believed in things unseen
I was blinded by the dark.
Out of the multitude to me
He came and broke my heart.

When the dust in the field has flown,
And the youngest of hearts has grown,
And you doubt you will ever be free,
Don't bail on me.

River is wide and oh so deep
And it winds and winds around.
I dream we're happy in my sleep
Floating down and down and down.

And the tide rushes by where we stand,
And the earth underneath turns to sand,
And we're waiting for someone to see,
Don't bail on me.

Tell ma I loved the man
Even though I turned and ran.
Lovely and fine I could have been
Laying down in the palm of his hand.
Laying down in the palm of his hand.
Laying down in the palm of his hand.
Staying down in the palm of his hand.

In the morning you wait for the sun,
And secretly hope it won't come,
But time washes everyone clean,
Honey now, don't bail on me.
Don't bail on me.
Don't bail on me.

(Sheryl Crow)
