Peace Like a River Lyrics

by Paul Simon

Ah, peace like a river ran through the city
Long past the midnight curfew, we sat starry-eyed
Ooh, oh, we were satisfied, ooh, and I remember
Misinformation followed us like a plague
Nobody knew from time to time if the plans were changed
Oh, oh, oh, if the plans were changed

You can beat us with wires, you can beat us with chains
You can run out your rules
But you know you can't outrun the history train
I seen a glorious day, aiee

Ah, four in the morning, I woke up from out of my dreams
Nowhere to go but back to sleep but I'm reconciled
Oh, oh, oh, I'm going to be up for a while
Oh, oh, oh, I'm going to be up for a while
Oh, oh, oh, I'm going to be up for a while
