My love is like a river,
she just keeps on rolling along

No man ever can keep that girl
from moving on
Easy as she comes by,
easy as she's gone

Get down, real down,
crying how I love that girl,
she's as free as heaven on a breeze

Lay my burden down,
down by the river's edge,
there I learned to let my lover be

And don't you know I'd hold you (hold you, oh yeah)
if I could find a way,(oh yeah, oh yeah)
if I could only catch you, (oooh, catch you, oh yeah)
if only you would stay. (stay, stay)

and don't you know I want you, (want you, want you)
baby, baby, baby, baby, stay (stay, yeah)
If i could only love you, (love me)
but girl you keep on
running away (x3)
oh oh no no (yeah)

My love is like a river.

    My OpinionIt's not often I come across a song I wish was written for me. This is one of those rare times. Bliss.

    General Comment68-69 era Rolling Stones mixed with post-"Ladies and Gentlemen" Spiritualized. This song is just absolutely perfect.
