There's a tunnel that leads to the rivers of love
It's sights make you bleed 'til you're white as a dove
Don't bother to bring all the baggage you cling to
The porter will free you before you come through
The doorway that cleanses, the darkness that mends
It's easy to smile in the end

And it all comes down
To leaving it all behind and moving on
To the rivers of love
And never be lonely again
How long have you waited?
How long 'til you drown?

The rules and directions, the twists and corrections
Take tolls on the highs we still strive 'til we die
To seek out the one love, the one that we dream of
The one may be there with you everyday
Alone and untethered and free of all ties
Free since the day you first cried

And it all comes down
To leaving it all behind and moving on
To the rivers of love
And never be lonely again
How long have you waited?
How long 'til you drown?

But it all comes down
To leaving it all behind and moving on
To the rivers of love
And never be lonely again
How long have you waited?
How long 'til you drown?
How long have you waited?
How long 'til you drown?
