about

The final version of Rivers. Created with the talents of Brian Fallon, Corey Siegel, Brian Bequette, Hans DeKline and "Frankie Fingers".

lyrics

Rivers of whiskey
Rivers of girls
Rivers like ravens
Rivers of pearls

Watch me boys for I could fade tonight
The shore is dark and void of any light

Rivers of loudmouths
Rivers of work
Rivers of boredom
And rivers of hurt

Watch me boys for I could fall tonight
The shore is dark and void of any light
We scrapped and then we fought with all our might
The shore is dark and void of any light

Her eyes are like two sparrows
Gone and faraway
And all I want is what she was
Before I said what young sailors say

Rivers full of smoke
And rivers full of grins
Now rivers are full of rooms
That I’m no longer in

Watch me float and fade to black tonight
The shores are dark and void of any light
I tumbled through the haunt and fell inside
This river too is dark and void of light

Rivers full of coils
And rivers full of strings
Rivers are such mysterious,
and ruthless and seductive things
Her eyes got like two sparrows
So dark and faraway
And all I want is what she was
All I want is what she was
All I want is what she was
Now all I want is what she was before I said what young sailors say

It goes like this
The end’s a kiss
Summer grins
At winter’s fist
And as you drift
All you’ll get is
Hallelujah

I threw it all away
I threw it all away
Don’t throw it all away
On rivers that don’t exist

It goes like this
The end’s a kiss
Summer grins
At winter’s fist
And as you drift
All you’ll get is
Hallelujah...
