"River" as written by Todd Michael Bridges, Joshua Block, Austin Jenkins and Chris Vivion....
Oh, oh
you damn the river
but you can't stop the flow
Oh, oh
We want it so

You try not to think about the feelings that you feel
'cause everybody knows that tender feelings aren't real
And if you start to look down there, who knows what would reveal
You've buried so much for so long, no wonder you can't deal
with life and love beyond the present moment
You just keep living your life like you don't own it

Oh, oh
you damn the river
but you can't stop the flow
Oh, oh
We want it so

The buildings built after the war aren't making any sense
sometimes I like the circus more because it is in tents
and if you hold my hand like that, in front of our parents
in a lot of cultures we'd be married, we would split the rent
But I have to say you're really not my boyfriend
then you always ask, "what am I doing here then?"

Oh...

You damn the river, but you can't stop the flow
Oh, you want it so
