Wet Wet Wet – Hold Back The River lyrics

Stop your pretending
Listen to what I've got to say
How your head's went away
Only here for a day
And that grave I just made
Is for me when I get paid

Won't you wait a while
Move to blue
Sometimes people don't want to say
Old time dancers don't die that way
See that grave I've just made
It's for me when I get paid

Somebody's got to hold back the river
Somebody like you

Do you love and surrender
Sometimes I feel like I can remember
I think it's fair to mention
About the days when I get paid

Somebody's got to hold back the river
Somebody like you
Somebody's got to hold back the river
Somebody like you

I want a little loving
I told you all to listen
But you never liked what you heard
I take what I am given
This may sound absurd
I share a double vision
Starting the transition

Hey where's Jimmy Jazz
Steady on the scales

I told you to listen
I told you to listen

Somebody's got hold back the river
Somebody like you
Somebody's got to hold back the river
Somebody like you

You know that somebody
You know that somebody
You know that somebody
But it ain't you
