I guess you got me in a sentimental mood
Never thought I'd feel this way again
Lyin' here with my dreams
I get so lonely thinking of you

River of tears
Oceans of heartbreak
I want to feel
What your love can be

I close my eyes
The chances that I'll take
Have made me so blind
'Til I can't see

I never let you know just what's been on my mind
I never thought I'd hurt so bad for you love this long
Lyin' here at night alone
I keep on wonderin' just what went wrong

River of tears
Oceans of heartbreak
I want to feel
What your love can be

I close my eyes
Chances that I take
Made me so blind
'Til I can't see

River of tears
River of tears

River of tears
Oceans of heartbreak
I wanna feel
What your love could be

I close my eyes
The chances that I take
Have got me so blind
'Til I can't see

River of tears
It's a river of tear
River of tears
It's just a river of tear

River of tears
River of tears
River of tears
It's just a river of tears

It's a river of tears
It's a river of tears
River of tears
River of tears
