Life is like a big river


Sinkin' or swim, depends on you

You can take or you can be a giver

You're gonna get through
Once, a good woman loved me
If you got love


Kinda cruel, and she left me one day

Now I'm cyin', she loves another

Gotta go alone
The rest of the way


Take, the advice of a loser

Who's been livin' too long alone
Follow your heart



Follow your rainbow
And one day you'll find
You are not alone
