River

Album: Bishop Briggs (2016)
  • Like a river, like a river, sh-
    Like a river, like a river, sh-
    Like a river, like a river
    Shut your mouth and run me like a river

    How do we fall in love
    Harder than a bullet could hit ya?
    How do we fall apart
    Faster than a hair pin trigger?

    Don't you say, don't you say it
    Don't say, don't you say it
    One breath, it'll just break it
    So shut your mouth and run me like a river

    Shut your mouth, baby stand and deliver
    Holy hands, oh they make me a sinner
    Like a river, like a river
    Shut your mouth and run me like a river

    Choke this love till the veins start to shiver
    One last breath till the tears start to wither
    Like a river, like a river
    Shut your mouth and run me like a river

    Tales of an endless heart
    Curses is the fool who's willing
    Can't change the way we are
    One kiss away from killing

    Don't you say, don't you say it
    Don't say, don't you say it
    One breath it'll just break it
    So shut your mouth and run me like a river

    Shut your mouth, baby stand and deliver
    Holy hands, ooh they make me a sinner
    Like a river, like a river
    Shut your mouth and run me like a river

    Choke this love till the veins start to shiver
    One last breath till the tears start to wither
    Like a river, like a river
    Shut your mouth and run me like a river

    Like a river, like a river, (oh oh oh)
    Like a river, like a river, (ooh-oh-oh)
    Like a river, like a river
    Shut your mouth and run me like a river

    Hey, oh oh oh
    Hey, oh oh oh (like a river)
    Hey, oh oh oh
    Oh oh oh (like a river)

    Like a river

    Shut your mouth baby stand and deliver (stand and deliver)(like a river, like a river)
    Holy hands, oh they make me a sinner (make me a sinner)(like a river, like a river)
    Like a river, like a river (like a river)
    Shut your mouth and run me like a river (and run me like a river)

    Choke this love till the veins start to shiver (start to shiver)(like a river, like a river)
    One last breath till the tears start to wither (oh oh)
    Like a river, like a river
    Shut your mouth and run me like a river
