Lyrics

Tried to keep you close to me
But life got inbetween
Tried to square not being in there
But think that I should have been

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river, so I
Stop for a minute and see where you hide
Hold back the river, hold back the river

Once upon a different life
We rode our bikes into the sky
Now we crawl against the time
Those distant days are flashing by

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river, so I
Stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river, hold back

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river so I
Stop for a minute and see where you hide
Hold back the river, hold back the river

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

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river, so I
Stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river, hold back
Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river, so I

Stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river, hold back the river
Lonely water, lonely water
Won't you let us wander
Let us hold each other
Lonely water, lonely water
Won't you let us wander
Let us hold each other
