Nickelback – For The River lyrics
Stuck in a cage
Luck of the draw
Hours to wait
Gotta get out
Lord, I gotta fight one
Get me a key
Pick me a lock
Gotta be free, ready or not
Gotta run, gotta run
Gotta run, gotta run
Gotta run, gotta run

Nowhere to hide 'cause someone's gotta find you
Trying to breathe when everybody's right behind you
Scattering leaves to try and cover up the footprints
Water ahead 'cause I can hear it in the distance

I'm running for the river
'Cause the river's been high and there ain't no goin' back
They'll never catch me
I'm running for the river
You can ride, you can fly, you can tell them that you drive
But there ain't no going back
They'll never catch me
Tell em that you tried, but you're never gonna catch me

Let out the hounds
Stand up the guards
Stand up and bow
Better be boss like the Kennedy's
A fast one, now that the trees
Ended the swamp
Gotta be free
So don't ever never stop
Gotta run, gotta run
Gotta run, gotta run
God damn it, it's a fast one

Nowhere to hide cause someone's gotta find you
Trying to breathe when everybody's right behind you
Scattering leaves to try and cover up the footprints
Water ahead because I can hear it in the distance

I'm running for the river
'Cause the river's been high and there ain't no goin' back
They'll never catch me
I'm running for the river
You can ride, you can fly, you can tell them that you drive
But there ain't no going back
They'll never catch me
Tell 'em that you tried, but you're never gonna catch me

Water ahead 'cause I can hear it in the distance
Water ahead 'cause I can (gotta run) hear it in the distance
Water ahead 'cause I can hear it in the distance
Water ahead 'cause I can hear it in the distance (gotta run, gotta run)

I'm running for the river
'Cause the river's been high and there ain't no goin' back
They'll never catch me
I'm running for the river
You can ride, you can fly, you can tell them that you drive
But there ain't no going back
They'll never catch me

They'll never catch me
Never gonna catch me
Never gonna catch me
They'll never catch me
