Foo Fighters – I Am A River lyrics

[Verse 1]
There is a secret, I found a secret
Behind a SoHo door

There is a reason, I found a reason
Beneath the subway floor

I found the water, the devil's water
And walked along its shore

[Break-Down 1]
Is that what you want?

[Verse 2]
Your channel's changing, the heart is racing
From voices on the wire

The soul is yearning, the coal is burning
The ember starts a fire

Can we recover love for each other?
The measure of your life

[Break-Down 2]
Is that what you want?
Is that what you really want?

A river, a river
A river running underground
A river, a river
Is that what you want?
Is that what you really want?

[Chorus] x2
I, I, I am a river
I, I, I am your river

[Break-Down 2]

[Chorus] x2

I am a river

[Chorus] x3
