Just in a simple conversation
You can hear the feeling change
Like a river running down
Down to the sea
And if you need an explanation
I defy you to explain
But something's not the same
And it's bothering me

I think we see where I went wrong
I think I see what's going on
Meanwhile and far away
As the night draws in
He's holding her right now
I can feel it all begin
Meanwhile and far away
When the day is done
I ride away my friend
Into the setting sun
And the rivers running down
Down to the sea

I let love slip right through my fingers
And I watched it drift away
But still I had to say
What was written for me

I thought I'd end up as the hero
Thought the glory would be mine
Very soon I was to find
It wasn't to be
'Cos in this part I've got to play
It doesn't quite turn out that way

Meanwhile and far away
As the night draws in
He's holding her right now
I can feel it all begin
Meanwhile and far away
When the day is done
I ride away my friend
Into the setting sun

And the river's running down
Down to the sea
