Sail The Rivers Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Would you give me
One more chance
If I agree to your demands
Or will you turn the knife
Keep me in pain till
I can't take no more
Would you take the breath of my life
Or are you lookin' for something
I never do right
I should be the one to let go
I could free your body and soul

So here we stand
Like actors in a play
On an empty stage
Not knowin' what to say
I tried so hard to get through to you
cos don't you know I still need you
Oh, I need you

If I ask for one more night
Would you let me bathe in your light
Would you let me cover you up
And wrap myself around you
So you feel my love
Is this just the heat of the day
Or am I really feelin' this way
I see your silent tears
Before the storm
I feel the breeze
From a love that's gone

You've always walked
On the open sand
You'd risk it all so
I'd reach out my hand
I tried so hard to hold on to you
cos don't you know I still need you

Sail the river and drift away
Find yourself on another day
Don't reach out
You have to hold me in bay
cos I will always follow you
Take a knife and cut me down
Spill my blood
Watch it fall to the ground
There's no way to turn me around
cos I will always follow you
Be a part of you

If I was to offer my life
I'd give it up just to
Bathe in your light
And you could have it
You could have it all
My heart, my body, my soul
Is this just the heat of the day
Or am I really feelin' this way
I wipe away the tears
Before the storm
I feel the breeze
From a love that's gone

So here we stand
Nothing left to say
I give it all but you turn me away
I tried so hard to get through to you

Sail the river and drift away
Find yourself on another day
Sail the river and drift away
cos I will always follow you
I will always be a part of you

Sail the river and drift away
Sail the river and drift away
Sail the river ...
