All aboard
The ship is waiting
All aboard, you know I've finally learned
That I don't need no farewell party
I'm just gonna let my bridges burn
Cause I'm going down the river of no return

Well, I let it go
Yeah, I cried myself an ocean
Now I'm gonna pack up my dreams and sail away
And my destination is none of your concern
Cause I'm going down the river of no return
I'm going down the river of no return

A misty grey morning covered for me
As I left you there sleeping
All tangled up in your dreams
And this morning I woke up
And I knew I was free
You may she'd a teardrop
But, oh baby, it won't be for me

So all aboard
The ship is waiting
My ship has finally come in
And I don't need no farewell party
Just gonna watch those bridges burn
Down, down the river
All the way down the river of no return
