Lights – River lyrics
[Verse 1:]
Out across cities I see buildings burn into piles,
And watch the world in wonder as mountains turn into tiles,
And trees losing their leaves and faces becoming tired,
I wish I could discover something that doesn't expire,
Come and stumble me.

[Chorus:]
Take me, river, carry me far
Lead me, river, like a mother
Take me over to some other unknown
Pull me in the undertow

[Verse 2:]
Such are the things that make a kingdom rumble and shatter,
The same dynamic that another day would never matter.
It really just depends on who's giving and who's receiving,
And things that don't make sense are always a little deceiving.
Come and humble me.

[Chorus:]
Take me, river, carry me far,
Lead me, river, like a mother,
Take me over to some other unknown,
Pull me in the undertow.

[Bridge:]
I wanna go where you're going,
A follower following,
Changing but never changed,
Claiming but never claimed.

[Chorus:]
Take me, river, carry me far,
Lead me, river, like a mother,
Take me over to some other unknown,
Pull me in the undertow.

Take me, river, carry me far,
Lead me, river, like a mother,
Take me over to some other unknown,
Pull me in the undertow.
