The Head And The Heart – Rivers And Roads lyrics

A year from now we'll all be gone
All our friends will move away
And they're going to better places
But our friends will be gone away

Nothing is as it has been
And I miss your face like Hell
And I guess it's just as well
But I miss your face like Hell

Been talking 'bout the way things change
And my family lives in a different state
And if you don't know what to make of this
Then we will not relate
So if you don't know what to make of this
Then we will not relate

Rivers and roads
Rivers and roads
Rivers 'til I reach you

Rivers and roads
Oh rivers and roads
Oh rivers 'til I reach you

Rivers and roads
Rivers and roads
Rivers 'til I reach you

Rivers and roads
Rivers and roads
Rivers 'til I reach you

Rivers and roads
Rivers and roads
Rivers 'til I reach you

Rivers and roads
Rivers and roads
Rivers 'til I reach you

Rivers and roads
Rivers and roads
Rivers 'til I reach you

Rivers and roads
Rivers and roads
Rivers 'til I reach you

Rivers and roads
Rivers and roads
Rivers 'til I reach you

    To me, this song has so many meanings, but I think one of the main themes in the song is nostalgia - especially the first verses. We all have times and people that we think back on - times and people who have moved on, maybe without us, while we have also kept going.

    I love the repeated [Refrain] "Rivers and roads... rivers 'til I reach you." Rivers and roads signify paths in a journey, and in this case, the journey could be a journey towards new places, times or even a new person. Alternatively, the journey could be in going back to a time or a place or a person that once made the person singing the song happy.

    In life, we have to be prepared to keep pressing forward, and to follow the rivers and roads which will lead us to whatever happiness it is that we're looking for.
