I didn't want to say it in this way
I didn't want to see the day I'd say these words to you
I didn't want have to explain
Sometimes heroes have to lose

It's killing me to see you cry
Would it make it any better if I told you I did it all for you
It was just another roll of the dice, just another star in the sky
Tried to touch it but I couldn't fly

Everybody knows the promise of the river
And everybody goes with the fire in their eyes
Everybody knows you can lead a horse to water
But there's nothing anybody can do, rivers run dry

Gonna have to go away
I always told you that a man has got to face his own mistakes
Sometimes you get a lucky break
Sometimes your winning streak will stay
Sometimes you gotta pay

Everybody knows the promise of the river
Everybody goes with the fire in their eyes
Everybody knows you can lead a horse to water
But there's nothing anybody can do when the rivers run dry

Oh, I remember when the rivers ran high
Oh, and we could make it to the other side
Make it to the other side

Everybody knows the promise of the river
Everybody goes with the fire in their eyes
And everybody knows you can lead a horse to water
But there's nothing anybody can do, oh there's nothing anybody can do
There's nothing anybody can do when the rivers run dry
When the rivers run dry
