She's a River [Edit]
by Simple Minds



Shadow let go there's something you should know
I just found my new direction and I hope you like the key
Like the air that led me to it
She's the wind that sucked me through it
She's a river and she's turning there in front of me

Stand back get back, she'll paint your blue skies black
She gives bullet proof protection, she got a resurrection feel
When I'm scared, and 'bout to lose, she gives me traveling shoes
She's a river and she's turning in front of me

And I go blind, wasting my time
While the rivers in front of me that's where I'm goin' to be

Shine on, get on twilight from dusk to dawn
She's the spirit of creation, she's the last chance guarantee
Got a myriad of poses, sweet miracles and roses
She's a river and she's turning in front of me

And I go blind, wasting my time
While the rivers in front of me that's where I'm goin' to be

Shadow ?
The river's in front of me

They say that every heaven's got a thousand rooms
So take me on that freedom ride
My heart is like a hunter's in the silent moon
My nerves just feel electrified

Meet me on the staircase by a darkened room
Light me like a naked flame
The voice of Mother Nature states all things must pass
And nothing can remain

They say that every heaven's got a thousand rooms
So take me on that freedom ride

You raise me like a building to the very top
Rush me to the end of time
You fill me full of danger, you give me future shock
Then you leave me wasted dying

Stand back get back
Stand back get back
Move on
She's a river, she's a river
She's a river
And I go blind, wasting my time
The river's in front of me

Stand back get back
She's a river, she's a river, she's a river
She's a river, she's a river

Shine on, get on twilight from dusk to dawn
She's the spirit of creation, she's the last chance guarantee
Stand back get back
She's a river, she's a river, she's a river
In front of me

Stand back get back
The river's in front of me
The river's in front of me
The river's in front of me
