"River of Love" as written by Patty Smyth and Glen Burtnick....
I been standin' on the water's edge
Now you want to pull me in
But I been standin here too long
I can't remember if I can swim

Do you believe that people change
Now baby
Tell me that you see a change in me
I'm ready to begin

'Cause I climbed a mountain, that ain't so tough
Now I'm going down to the river of love
I made some money, it's never enough
Now I'm going down to the river of love

Follow me down, down, down to the river
Now your big blue skies
And your deep blue water
Will not wash away the past

But to my heart I will surrender
And swear this time will be the last
And maybe I'm afraid of losing baby
Maybe it'd be worse to win

Either way I'm jumping in
I climbed a mountain, that ain't so tough
Now I'm going down to the river of love
I made some money, it's never enough

Now I'm going down to the river of love
Follow me down, down, down to the river
And I was thirsty baby
You came and filled me up

And now I'm ready, ready baby
To drown in your river of love
I climbed a mountain, that ain't so tough
Now I'm going down to the river of love

If it's too sweet I may never come up
I'm going down to the river of love
I've moved some mountains, that ain't so tough
Now I'm going down to the river of love

If it's too sweet I may never come up
I want to drown in your river of love
Follow me down, down, down
To the river
