"River" as written by Magnus Lidehall and Seinabo Sey....
You led me to the water
Said it heals my hand
You took me to the river
Said soon you'll understand
I came to cross it, I came to leave
I came to see the future
Will you tell me when I'm near?

I understand you now
I understand you now
I understand you now
You had to
I understand you now
I understand you now
I understand you now

Now your intentions stay the same
Waiting for you to call my name
You had me where you wanted
But I still feel shame
I can't stay long
But I still can make you smile
I can try for days
But that won't make you stay

I understand you now
Yes I do
I understand you now
Yes I do
I understand you now
You had to
I understand you now
Yes I do
I understand you now
Yes I do
I understand you now

You say I took all of the fire
I made sure that we lost desire
I might have said it first but you made it true
Now all of that you can say is that I shouldn't have let you

I understand you now
Yes I do
I understand you now
Yes I do
I understand you now
You had to
I understand you now
Yes I do
I understand you now
Yes I do
I understand you now
