Album: Chasing Yesterday (2015)
Charted: 70
  • There's something in the way, she moves me to distraction
    I traveled all this way to try and make amends
    'Cause heavy in the air are the words that she left hanging
    I tried to walk away but I only stand and stare

    The rain that comes
    All of the love that was left behind
    Is gone
    When the Riverman runs
    Find me the girl who electrifies the storm
    In a little while she'll be gone

    (Maybe)

    I waited in the rain
    My feet turned wet from just standing
    I shouted out my name
    Behind a rainbow's end
    But somewhere in the crowd
    She heard me jingle janging
    Like a memory that fades
    She slipped away again

    The rain that comes
    All of the love that was left behind
    Is gone
    When the Riverman runs
    Find me the girl who electrifies the storm
    The rain that comes
    All of the love that was left behind
    Is gone
    When the Riverman runs
    Find me the girl who electrifies the storm

    And in a little while she'll be gone

    The Riverman run
    The Riverman run
    The Riverman run
    The Riverman run Writer/s: NOEL GALLAGHER, EROL ALKAN MUSTAFA, NOEL THOMAS GALLAGHER, RICHARD GRAHAM THOMAS NORRIS

  • Alli Billington from BlackburnI love Pinball by Brian Protheroe and whilst Riverman has the same haunted feeling, the guitar sounds remarkably like David Cassidy’s “fix of your love” from the album “the Higher they climb the harder they fall”. A great track.
