Emeli Sande – River lyrics

[Verse 1]
If you're lookin' for the big adventure,
And gold is all that's on your mind,
If all you want someone to take your picture,
Then I won't waste your time

[Pre-Chorus]
See maybe I'm too quiet for ya,
You probably never noticed me,
But if you're too big to follow rivers,
How you ever gonna find the sea

[Chorus]
So follow me, I'll be your river river, yeah
I'll do the running for ya, follow me,
I'll be your river river, yeah I'll move the mountains for ya,
Follow me, I'll be your river river,
I'm here to keep you floating, follow me,
I'll be your river river, river river, yeah

[Verse 2]
If all you want are answers to your questions,
Can't seem to find no love, for free,
If you're lookin' for the right direction,
Then darling look for me

[Pre-Chorus]
See, I can make the load much lighter,
I just need you to confide in me,
But if you're too proud to follow rivers,
How you ever gonna find the sea

[Chorus]
So follow me, I'll be your river river, yeah
I'll do the running for ya, follow me,
I'll be your river river, I'll move the mountains for ya,
Follow me, I'll be your river river,
I'm here to keep you floating, follow me,
I'll be your river river, river river yeah

Where ever you’re standing,
I will be by your side,
Through the good through the bad, I'll never be hard to find,
Said where ever you’re standing,
I will be by your side,
Through the good through the bad, I'll never be hard to find,

[Chorus]
So follow me, I'll be your river river, yeah
I'll do the running for ya, follow me,
I'll be your river river, yeah, I'll move the mountains for ya,
Follow me, I'll be your river river,
I'm here to keep you floating, follow me,
I'll be your river river, river river yea


Where ever you're standing,
I will be by your side,
Through the good through the bad, I’ll never be hard to find

    I've been going through a very difficult time in my life, I've had hard times but this is definitely the hardest in my life, I first heard this song when I was told my mum might not make it out of her coma, I listened to this song everytime I was sat in the waiting room or on the train to see her, though she is now home she is still very ill and this song just seems to comfort me and give me hope. It still brings me to tears every time I listen to it. X
