Wild River


I've been too long on the edge and I've gotten too hard cut Open yourself way up for me And I'll just slam you shut I'm like hard rolled steel Just a cold blue silence to you I'm so blinded in my mind I can't face what I do Maybe I'm just hard blooded and I really don't give a damn I just leave you there in the darkness and you won't know where I am Wild river in me Well it rolls and it rose But no matter where it goes It runs back to you Maybe I'm shadowed over They say I have a mad man's eye But you see through my secret It's no secret I just lie Or maybe I'm all empty style Just an ego strut I just spit and never smile And I act like I know what's what If you strip off this protection I'll be right here where I stand And what you see before you Is just one more angry man Wild river in me Well it rolls and it rose But no matter where it goes It runs back to you And when the river runs dry left to dust and only stones All the life that it owns Will be the river in you
