Song lyrics of River by Bishop Briggs


Like a river

Like a river sh-

Like a river

Like a river sh-

Like a river

Like a river

 

Shut your mouth and run me like a river

How do you fall in love?

Harder than a bullet could hit you

How do we fall apart?

Faster than a hairpin trigger

Don't you say, don't you say it, don't say

Don't you say it, one breath and it'll just break it

So shut your mouth and run me like a river

 

Shut your mouth

Baby, stand and deliver

Holy hands, will they make me a sinner

Like a river

Like a river

Shut your mouth and run me like a river

Choke this love till the veins start to shiver

One last breath till the tears start to wither

Like a river

Like a river

Shut your mouth and run me like a river

 

Tales of an endless heart

Cursed is the fool who's willing

Can't change the way we are

One kiss away from killing

Don't you say, don't you say it

Don't say, don't you say it

One breath it'll just break it

So shut your mouth and run me like a river

 

Shut your mouth

Baby, stand and deliver

Holy hands, will they make me a sinner

Like a river

Like a river

Shut your mouth and run me like a river

Choke this love till the veins start to shiver

One last breath till the tears start to wither

Like a river

Like a river

Shut your mouth and run me like a river

 

Like a river

Like a river

Like a river

Like a river

Like a river

Like a river

Shut your mouth and run me like a river

 

Hey! Ooh oh oh

Hey! Ooh oh oh

Like a river!

Hey! Ooh oh oh

Ooh oh oh

Like a river!

 

Shut your mouth

Baby, stand and deliver

Holy hands, will they make me a sinner

Like a river

Like a river

Shut your mouth and run me like a river

Choke this love till the veins start to shiver

One last breath till the tears start to wither

Like a river

Like a river

Shut your mouth and run me like a river
