Lyrics

Three Rivers
 
we ought to roll again,
back down by three rivers where we opened up
and climbed right in
we took off and ran
I will not fall unheard,
I think that’s what we both said, we were blameless
and we meant every word
it had to be a message
 
but the water was fast and the water was deep
quick to pull you under
so quick to knock you off of your feet
 
see the ghosts every mile,
standing by with folded arms and faded lines
with the hint of a smile
‘cause it don’t pay to throw your stones
we thought we were so free,
back down by the river we had all the time
that we’d ever need
to set it all right
 
but the water was fast and the water was deep
quick to pull you under
so quick to knock you off of your feet
 
I see it’s raining there tonight
fifteen years between us have come and gone
and set with the night
like a blanket over time
are you still seeking to find?
in between the shade and sun
that perfect place that’s still on my mind
‘cause I’ve been looking ever since
 
but the water was fast and the water was deep
quick to pull you under
so quick to knock you off of your feet
