lyrics

Lonely River
Sherah Sleeper

Verse 1:
Sitting here in front of you, I know you never really see me
Tipping back in my canoe, I feel the water swallow me
And I closes in around my chest and drowns my love and all the rest
And I don’t want anybody to save me
And I want another empty kiss goodnight

Chorus:
Lonely river, bear me on
I’ll be your prisoner
Just set me free from love

Verse 2
On the surface, rippling from the touch you seemed to give me
In the depths, recoiling I feel the lie wash over me
And I catch my breath and bite my tongue and count the seconds till you’re gone
And I don’t want to hear you say you’re sorry
And I don’t need another empty kiss goodnight

Bridge:
Deep and Wide, roll right through me
And I won’t fight for air tonight
Deep and Wide roll right through me
And I won’t fight for air tonight
For air tonight

Verse:
Lungs are burning, seeing stars, but I can’t see my way around this
All that is and all that was was small compared to what we missed
Oh lonely river, drench my eyes and bind my wounds and set me right
‘Cause I don’t want hope to be a liar
And I don’t need another empty kiss goodnight
