Take That – River lyrics
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

I spent my time here just holding on
Afraid to let go, the weight's swinging in my soul
No time for shaking this heavy load
Before I take myself down, sinking like a stone

Gotta get myself together
Gotta wash my body clean
If I try to live forever
Gonna be the death of me
'Cause a ghost is in the water
And it's haunted by the future
Gotta leave himself to nature
Gotta take me to the sea

Let me be a river, won't you carry me?
I can hear you calling me (you calling me)
Gotta trust that river gonna lead me somewhere
Be a river, won't you carry me?
I can hear you calling me (you calling me)
Gotta trust that river gonna lead me somewhere

Be a river, won't you carry me?
I can hear you calling me

I'm going down with the waterfall
Heading to places they haven't made a record for
Keep on the good side of every low
Nowhere to hide, no horizon, nowhere to go

Sometimes I feel you with me
Sometimes I go alone
Sometimes you give your blessing
Sometimes I feel the love
That river gonna take me there, that river gonna take me there
That river gonna take me there, yeah, I know that river gonna take me there

That river gonna take me there, that river gonna take me there
That river gonna take me there, yeah, I know that river gonna take me there

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

Let me be a river, won't you carry me?
I can hear you calling me (you calling me)
Gotta trust that river gonna lead me somewhere
Be a river, won't you carry me?
I can hear you calling me (you calling me)
Gotta trust that river gonna lead me somewhere
Be a river, won't you carry me?
I can hear you calling me
Gotta trust that river gonna lead me somewhere
Be a river, won't you carry me?
I can hear you calling me
Gotta trust that river gonna lead me somewhere
