  • Tried to keep you close to me
    But life got in between
    Tried to square not being there
    But think that I should have been

    Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
    Hold back the river, so I
    Can stop for a minute and see where you hide
    Hold back the river, hold back

    Once upon a different life
    We rode our bikes into the sky
    But now we call against the tide
    Those distant days are flashing by

    Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
    Hold back the river, so I
    Can stop for a minute and be by your side
    Hold back the river, hold back

    Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
    Hold back the river, so I
    Can stop for a minute and see where you hide
    Hold back the river, hold back

    Hold oho, oho
    Oho, oho

    Lonely water, lonely water, won't you let us wander
    Let us hold each other
    Lonely water, lonely water, won't you let us wander
    Let us hold each other

    Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
    Hold back the river, so I
    Can stop for a minute and be by your side
    Hold back the river, hold back

    Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
    Hold back the river, so I
    Can stop for a minute and be by your side
    Hold back the river, hold

    Lonely water, lonely water, won't you let us wander
    Let us hold each other
    Lonely water, lonely water, won't you let us wander
    Let us hold each other Writer/s: Iain Denis Archer, James Michael Bay
