Lyrics

Did ya ever know that I could feel your anger, throwing daggers from your eyes
It always seemed like there was danger near when you'd stagger
When you'd stagger through your lies
Now I wish I could cry, oh yeah cry, Oh like a river, like a river in a storm
I can't let it flow, I can't let it go, Will ya keep me warm?
Cause I wish I could cry, oh just cry, Oh like a river, like a river in a storm
I can't let it flow, I can't let it go, Will you keep me warm?
Will you keep me warm, will you keep me warm?
Oh, will you keep me warm?

Some children listen and some they speak, while others only play hide & seek
Some children they learn to have some fun, while others only learn to run
An I wanted to die, oh just die cause I believed you hated me
An I don't know why, still I don't know why an I wonder if you can see
See me now, can you see me now?
Oh, can you see me now?

I don't know why but I feel like your watching me
I don't know why but I feel like your stalking me
I don't know why I want to please you but I do
I don't know why I've got to see this thing through
I don't know why but I feel like your watching me
I don't know why but I feel like your stalking me
I don't know why I want to please you but I do
I don't know why I've got to see this thing through
I wish I could cry, I wish I could cry, like a river with you eye to eye, baby
Turn on your radio, turn on your television
Turn on your lover, turn off these feelings
Take off these ragged jeans, turn off these memories
Just like a river, ride emotion, ride emotion, like a river
I wish the telephone would ring & be you saying you can't find nothing better to do
Than take one last dance around the living room
LIKE A RIVER!
Oh, you've got to learn to let it go,
Oh, you've got to, got to let it flow

Like A River in a storm
Like a A River, Like A River
Like A River in a Storm
Like A River


Like A River - Naked & Alone C.D.
