Ben Howard – Rivers In Your Mouth lyrics

[Verse:]
Hold it in the river in your mouth is pouring out
Water takes the shape of all that it surrounds
Ye-i know I've been trying so hard to
Keep in time with all of the hours in your day

Hold it in, babe, who let ya out among the crowd?
Not like that, these streets will tear you down
How it is under my skin, how you are
Pictures of all you'll ever be

[Chorus:]
Oh, I am not myself today
I am not feelin' okey

[Verse 2:]
Hold it in love, the river in your mouth is pouring out
Water takes the shape of all that it's around
Ye-i know I been tryin' so hard to keep in time
With all of the sounds that you make
Hold it in, babe, come at you from both sides of your mind
Thick and thin these, walls you'll always stand behind
Sick and tired, I beg for the world to change
But it don't I lean on you and that's the thing

[Chorus:]
Oh, I am not myself today
I am not feelin' okey

[Bridge:]
And you showed me hope amidst the hellequins in spring
And you told me life was learnin' how to be your friend
