I should've seen it coming now
Should've known it would happen this way
If I'd trusted my initial instincts
Then maybe you'd be here today

Cos the more that I gave
The more I could see a change
You only wanted my love
When you thought I might take it away, I'm afraid

Now I'm drowning in a river of pain
Slowly going down
All I did was love you too much
So now I'll remain
Stranded here forever
Drowning in a river of pain

I don't know when it happened now
Suddenly you'd taken control
One day I was pulling your strings girl
Then the next you had a grip on my soul

So I let myself go baby
Cos my heart wouldn't be denied
There was distance in your eyes
And your touch turned fire to ice, no surprise

That I'm drowning in a river of pain
Here with my regrets
Going round and round in my head
But still I remain
Stranded here forever
Drowning in a river of pain

(SOLO)

Somehow when you saw the other side of me
Then I lost my mystery

Now I'm drowning in a river of pain
Slowly going down
All I did was love you too much
So now I'll remain
Drowning in a river
Oh I’m drowning
