River

Album: Our Version Of Events (2012)
  • If you're looking for the big adventure,
    And gold is all that's on your mind,
    If all you want's someone to take your picture,
    Then I won't waste your time

    See maybe I'm too quiet for ya,
    You probably never noticed me,
    But if you're too big to follow rivers,
    How you ever gonna find the seas

    So follow me, I'll be your river river,
    I'll do the running for ya, follow me,
    I'll be your river river, I'll move the mountains for ya,
    Follow me, I'll be your river river,
    I'm here to keep you floating, follow me,
    I'll be your river river, river river, yeah

    If all you want are answers to your questions,
    And you can't seem to find no love for free,
    If you're looking for the right direction,
    Then darling look for me

    See, I can't make the load much lighter,
    I just need you to confide in me,
    But if you're too proud to follow rivers,
    How you ever gonna find the sea

    So follow me, I'll be your river river
    I'll do the running for ya, follow me,
    I'll be your river river, I'll move the mountains for ya,
    Follow me, I'll be your river river,
    I'm here to keep you floating, follow me,
    I'll be your river river, river river yeah

    Wherever you're standing I will be by your side,
    Through the good through the bad, I'll never be hard to find
    I said wherever you're standing I will be by your side
    Through the good through the bad, I'll never be hard to find

    So follow me, I'll be your river river
    I'll do the running for ya, follow me,
    I'll be your river river, I'll move the mountains for ya,
    Follow me, I'll be your river river,
    I'm here to keep you floating, follow me,
    I'll be your river river, river river yeah

    Wherever you're standing I will be by your side
    Through the good through the bad, I'll never be hard to find Writer/s: EMELI SANDE, SHAHID KHAN
