"Keep the River on Your Right" as written by and Nick Lachey Jonatha Brooke....
You build me up to tear me down
Throw me in the fire
Twist the things I say around
Paint me as a liar

Sometimes I don't know just what I'm doing
But I can see exactly what I've done
I have made my peace with my reflection
Nothing you could do, nothing you could say would make me run

Keep the river on your right, and keep walking
Never let them look you in the eye
Keep the river on your right, and keep walking
Never ever let them see you cry

They tell you take it like a man
Pain will make you stronger
But this is not the path I planned
The road keeps getting longer

This journey started out with good intentions
I never thought my life would come undone
No one ever took the time to mention
Trouble always finds you, trouble always finds you when you run

So keep the river on your right, and keep walking
Never let them look you in the eye
Keep the river on your right, and keep walking
Never ever let them see you cry

Even on the high road
The devil's at your back
Anyone will tell you, tell you that the

Journey always starts with good intentions
You never think your life will come undone
Everybody's looking for redemption
There're many rules to live by, me I'm only thinking of this one

Keep the river on your right, and keep walking
Never let them look you in the eye
Keep the river on your right, and keep walking
Never ever let them see you cry
