Tried to keep you close to me,
But life got in between.
Tried to square not being there,
But think that I should've been.

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river so I...
Can stop for a minute and see where you hide
Hold back the river, hold back.

Once upon a different life
We rode our bikes into the sky.
But now we're caught against the tide
Those distant days are flashing by.

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river so I
Can stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river, hold back.

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river so I...
Can stop for a minute and see where you hide
Hold back the river, hold back.

Oh oh oh oh...

Lonely water, lonely water,
Won't you let us wander,
Let us hold each other?
Lonely water, lonely water,
Won't you let us wander,
Let us hold each other?

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river so I
Can stop for a minute and be by your side
Hold back the river, hold back.

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes
Hold back the river so I...
Can stop for a minute and see where you hide
Hold back the river, hold back.

Lonely water, lonely water,
Won't you let us wander,
Let us hold each other?
Lonely water, lonely water,
Won't you let us wander,
Let us hold each other?
