It was way back then
Me and a friend was playing
Like we should
Just hangin' in the hood up to no good
We found this piece
Took it out on the street
It should never of been
Back then we thought we could run forever

Throwing bullets in the river, oh
Throwing bullets in the river, oh, whoa, whoa, whoa

So sad of a time
A thoughtless act without reason
A shot rang out
Then to the ground he fell bleeding
"Please don't let me die," his words as he cried
"Oh help me"
Back then we thought we could run forever
And because of a f---in' gun those days are gone
And now I stand alone and quiver

Throwing bullets in the river
All, all, all alone
Throwing bullets in the river
All, all, all alone
All alone, yeah

Here I walk along the bank
Thinking about the day he went away
Here I walk along the bank
Thinking about the day he went away, oh
Throwing bullets in the river
All, all alone

Could have been me that day instead of him
I could have been the one down on the ground
With a bullet in my back, limp and bleeding
Back then we thought we could run forever
And because of a f---in' gun those days are gone
And now I stand alone and quiver

Throwing bullets in the river
All alone
Throwing bullets in the river
All, all, all alone
All alone
Throwing bullets in the river
All alone
Throwing bullets in the river
Whoa
Throwing bullets in the river
