  • There is a secret
    I found a secret
    Behind a Soho door

    There is a reason
    I found a reason
    Beneath the subway floor

    I found the water
    The devils water
    And walked along its shore

    Is that what you want?

    The channel's changin'
    The heart is racin'
    From voices on a wire

    The soul is yearnin'
    The cold is burnin'
    The ember starts a fire

    Can we recover
    Love for each other
    The measure of your life

    Is that what you want?
    Is that what you really want?

    A river
    A river
    A river runnin' under ground

    A river
    A river
    Is that what you want?
    Is that what you really want?

    I, I, I am a river

    Is that what you want?
    Is that what you really want?

    I, I, I am a river

    I am a river

    I, I, I am a river
    I, I, I am a river
    I, I, I am a river Writer/s: Chris Shiflett, David Grohl, Georg Ruthenberg, Nate Mendel, Oliver Taylor Hawkins
