Old Man River – All The Things lyrics

All the things that you're after
You've already got
All the things that you need
Are holding you back
When you chasin' them down
You fall in a trap

I got something to tell you
But I forgot
I got something to tell you
I Don't know what
I got something to tell you
It's coming back

When I'm pulling you up girl
You're pulling me down
If we both had to swim
We would probably drown
So you should go your way
And I'll go mine

Because all the things that you're after
You've already got
All the things that you need
Are holding you back
When you chasin' them down
You fall in a trap

Go to bed now
Rest your head
All the things you've done today
They're gone away
Yes they're gone
They all fade
They all fade
All the things that you're after...
