Howard Jones

Howard Jones (born John Howard Jones, 23 February 1955, Southampton, Hampshire, England) is a British musician, singer and songwriter. According to the Guinness Book of British Hit Singles & Albums, "Jones is an accomplished singer-songwriter who was a regular chart visitor in the mid 1980s with his brand of synthpop. Jones, who was equally popular in the U.S., appeared at Live Aid".Allmusic journalist, Stephen Thomas Erlewine adds, "Jones was one of the defining figures of mid 1980s synthpop. His music merged the technology intensive sound of New Wave with the cheery optimism of hippies and late 1960s pop. Jones racked up a string of hits in the mid and late 1980s, before he retreated into being a cult figure in the 1990s". more »

Where are the new rebels
We didn't ask for this 
Trying to be something different
We will fight the bigots
Fight them with our reason
Fight them with our constancy

[Chorus]
River, our river, let it flow
This is our lamp light
Let it glow
River, river, let it flow
This is our reason
Let it grow
Don't keep looking back
Living in the past
Never built a golden future. Have,
Have faith in the species
We've come to far to fail
I don't believe in our extinction
Everyone of us
Has got to take it on
Don't build a dam on evolution. There,
There are those who'd like us 
To cling on to the past
Wallowing in their past glories
River, (don't)
Our river, (don't look back)
Let it flow (we might fall)
This is our lamp light
Let it glow (have faith in the future)
River, (don't)
River, (don't look back)
Let it flow (we might fall)
This is our reason
Let it grow
