The River Lyrics - Atmosphere

Review The Song (0)



This one gave her one of those funny feelings
Almost had to stop
Every time I hear a river, I think the mother is crying


It was a purple purple sky and an orange orange moon
And everyone was whistlin' the same damn tune
Except Brian, Brian stared out across the field
And watched the horizon blossom to cop a feel
Over the edge of the world the one they're all afraid to walk
Ration out for why their so high on the small talk
But Brian knows where the crows all go
To find the if's and the and's and the but's and all so's

If I could run through the woods and speed like the light
I'd find the answers to why and be back by tonight
If I could fly through the fog and look at this rock
I'd figure out how to keep hell off of my block
But as it stands I stay content
sponsored links
Tryin' to be the magic man and pay my rent
And wishin' that Brian could turn me on
To the secrets he sought
While we keep burnin' the dawn just to keep the day hot

If I could ask you one question I'd ask where you went
You could teach me a lesson every time I got bent
But the alcohol don't make me forget about it all
Doesn't matter the season the leaves can still fall
They slipped hidden messages within the cards that were dealt
I understand myself and all the sorrow i felt
For as simple as I am how'd it get so complex
Got me studyin' the margins and disregardin' the text

I open the curtains and listen to the traffic go
But I still get nervous each time my piece passes go
The residue is thick and the memory fails
I still laugh because the path feels a lot like a trail

If I could run through the woods and speed like the light
I'd find the answers to why and be back by tonight
If I could fly through the fog and look down at this rock
I'd figure out how to keep hell off of my block
but as it stands I stay content
Tryin' to be the magic man and pay my rent
Wishin' that Brian could turn me on
to the secrets he sought
While we keep burnin' the dawn just to keep the day hot

We used to be a couple of pimps walking the hallways with pride
Drunk or sober life was nothin' short of roller coaster rides
Trip to the clubs nod the skull to the rhythm
All we wanted out of life was what was given

And when you passed I wanted to take back the time we wasted
I'd trade all the buzzes in for one more conversation
We could sit in the shade and discuss the meaning of sacred
Cause I cant see the garden no more just the aphids
But the wind still blows
And the plants still grow
And I wish your name was on the guest list at my shows
I gotta believe that you can see me when I find my freedom
Cause you got to meet the sun before you got to meet my son

And when I see lightning feels like my buzz heightening
Every time I feel the sun I can smell the love
And when I smell the air I can hear a child trying
But every time I hear a river I think the mother is crying

And when I see lightning feels like my buzz heightening
Every time I feel the sun I can smell the love
And when I smell the air I can hear a child trying
But every time I hear a river I think the mother is crying

(Overlapping)
Every time I think of you I know your laughter
And when I hear of you I know your laughter
x3

(Overlapping)
Every time I hear a river I think the mother is crying
And when I think of you, I know your laughter

Every time I hear a river I think the mother is crying
And when I hear of you, I know your laughter
