Toby Lightman – The River lyrics

When the roads are closed
Do you know where you should be?
When the lights are dim
Are you going to come crying to me?

'Cause you're sitting there
With your legs crossed
Looking so carefree...
Do you tihnk you can run away
From your so-called misery?

[Chorus:]
Cause you know the
Tide ain't rollin' in for you
The tide ain't rollin' in for me
Are you going to sink?
Are you going to swim?
Because I'll take you down to the river...
But you're going in.

Now the choice is yours
Are you in or are you going to back out?
Well this is your life baby
Are you going to take a look around?

'Cause you seem to think that all
Your chances will chase you down
I'm telling you to open up your eyes
And take those feet off the ground.

[Chorus:]

Now the roads are closed
Do you know where you should be?
When the lights are dim
Are you going to come crying to me?

[Chorus:]
