lyrics

MY RIVERS AND ME

we've got places to be
my rivers and me
we've got places to be
my rivers and me
we've got silences to fill
and fingers to slip through
moments to get swept up in
and decisions to rush into
and for what?
just give it a shot
you gotta give it your all
gotta give it your lot
reciprocated or not.

and you know sometimes we disagree
my rivers and me
i once thought i had the sea
lie in his bed next to me
but it was all just a phase
he was just caught up in a wave
i was sorry, you know, watching him go
still you don't stick your oar in if you're not gonna row

oh take me to the pea green sea
where nobody is heavy
and you can dive if you like
see Gravity in the pea green sea
nobody is heavy
so you can use all your might
but we’ll be free
my rivers and me

and i remember when we
we thought you and me
might be riding the river
that would lead to the sea
but the green of the weed
would not let us pass
so we threw down our oars
and abandoned our raft




and since its like
i've just been treading water
seems every good kiss
some how has me cornered
and she says the weeds
are all in my head
yeah she says the weeds
are all in my head
and maybe she’s right
and i grow little by little
i mean every river
started off a trickle

oh take me to the pea green sea
where nobody is heavy
and you can dive if you like
see Gravity in the pea green sea
nobody is heavy
so you can use all your might
but we’ll be free
my rivers and me

so if you want to swim
you've gotta come on in
oh believe me
you don't wanna be stranded
well then don't just stand there
cause believe me when i say
just look at the sea
licking the shore
letting us know
that she’s
hungry for more

oh take me to the pea green sea
where nobody is heavy
and you can dive if you like
see Gravity in the pea green sea
nobody is heavy
so you can use all your might
but we’ll be free
my rivers and me

and if there is no sea
at my journeys end
if round every river corner
there’s another river bend
the i turn to my current
plugging away
i turn to my whirlpools
to my eddies and say
hey you!
why the commotion?
didn't they teach you?
there's more than one ocean
