I wish I could come back to you, dear
'Cause I know that you want me too
But there's too much water's run under that old bridge
There's too many rivers between me and you

There's too many rivers to cross, dear
Too many dreams have been lost
And there's too many long nights
That I've turned and tossed
There's too many rivers to cross

Now don't think for a moment, I blame only you
We both peeled the fruit on the vine
And when you try to put love back together
There's always a few little pieces
That you just can't seem to find

There's too many rivers to cross, dear
Too many dreams have been lost
And there's too many long nights
That I've turned and tossed
There's too many rivers to cross
