Hold back the River - James Bay

 

Strophe) 

Tried to keep you close to me 

but life got in between 

Tried to square not being there 

but think that I should have been 

 

Refrain) 

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes 

Hold back the river so I 

Can stop for a minute and see where you hide 

Hold back the river, hold back 

 

 

Strophe) 

Once upon a different life 

We rode our bikes into the sky 

But now we call against the tide 

Those distand days are flashing by 

 

Refrain) 

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes 

Hold back the river so I 

Can stop for a minute and see where you hide 

Hold back the river, hold back 

 

Bridge) 

Lonely water, lonely water, won´t you let us wander 

Let us hold each other 

Lonely water, lonely water, won´t you let us wander 

Let us hold each other 

 

Refrain) 

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes 

Hold back the river so I 

Can stop for a minute and see where you hide 

Hold back the river, hold back 

 

Refrain) 

Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes 

Hold back the river so I 

Can stop for a minute and see where you hide 

Hold back the river, hold back 

 

Bridge) 

Lonely water, lonely water, won´t you let us wander 

Let us hold each other 

Lonely water, lonely water, won´t you let us wander 

Let us hold each other......
