Citizen Cope – The River lyrics
They'll take you down to the river
They'll lay you down by the river
They'll shoot you down by the river
Leave you to drown by the river

They'll say it's love when it's not
They'll send you to war and you'll return in a pine box
Somehow they'll claim it's your fault
They killed that little child in the park

They'll take you down to the river
They'll lay you down by the river
They'll shoot you down by the river
Leave you to drown by the river

They'll say it's love when it's not
They'll send you to war and you'll return in a pine box
Somehow they'll claim it's your fault
They killed that little child in the park
This gotta stop

They'll take you down to the river
They'll lay you down by the river
They'll shoot you down by the river
Leave you to drown by the river

By the river

See I never wanted to lose your love
I just wanted to choose your love
Lost in a moment of confusion
Now it's all an illusion

See I never wanted to lose your love
I just wanted to choose your love
Lost in a moment of confusion
Now it's all an illusion

See I never wanted to lose your love
I just wanted to choose your love
I lost in a moment of confusion
Now it's just an illusion

See I never wanted to lose your love
I just wanted to choose your love
Lost in a moment of confusion
Now it's just an illusion

New river
