Bishop Briggs – River lyrics

[Intro]
Like a river, like a river, sh-
Like a river, like a river, sh-
Like a river, like a river
Shut your mouth and run me like a river

[Verse 1]
How do we fall in love
Harder than a bullet could hit ya?
How do we fall apart
Faster than a hairpin trigger?
[Pre-Chorus]
Don't you say, don't you say it
Don't say, don't you say it
One breath, it'll just break it
So shut your mouth and run me like a river

[Chorus]
Shut your mouth, baby stand and deliver
Holy hands, ooh they make me a sinner
Like a river, like a river
Shut your mouth and run me like a river

Choke this love till the veins start to shiver
One last breath till the tears start to wither
Like a river, like a river
Shut your mouth and run me like a river

[Verse 2]
Tales of an endless heart
Cursed is the fool who's willing
Can't change the way we are
One kiss away from killing

[Pre-Chorus]
Don't you say, don't you say it
Don't say, don't you say it
One breath, it'll just break it
So shut your mouth and run me like a river

[Chorus]
Shut your mouth, baby stand and deliver
Holy hands, ooh they make me a sinner
Like a river, like a river
Shut your mouth and run me like a river

Choke this love till the veins start to shiver
One last breath till the tears start to wither
Like a river, like a river
Shut your mouth and run me like a river

Like a river, like a river, (ooh-oh-oh)
Like a river, like a river, (ooh-oh-oh)
Like a river, like a river
Shut your mouth and run me like a river

[Bridge]
Hey! Ooh oh oh
Hey! Ooh oh oh (Like a river)
Hey, Ooh oh oh
Ooh oh oh (Like a river)

Like a river

[Chorus]
Shut your mouth baby stand and deliver (stand and deliver)
(Like a river, like a river)
Holy hands, ooh they make me a sinner (make me a sinner)
(Like a river, like a river)
Like a river, like a river (like a river)
Shut your mouth and run me like a river (and run me like a river)

Choke this love till the veins start to shiver (start to shiver)
(Like a river, like a river)
One last breath till the tears start to wither (ooh-ooh)
Like a river, like a river
Shut your mouth and run me like a river
