Following The River

There's something I should tell you
Why don't you sit there in that chair
You're looking good today
I love the way your comb's tucked in your hair

My cards are on the table, but the drinks have all run out
There's been some other lads in this room with me, well, really quite a crowd
It's hard to break it gently, but I really thought it through
I don't think there's much future left for me and you, me and you

I've been following the river, 'til it joins hands with the sea
I've been thinking of you so bad
Cause you always saw the best in me
(Always saw the best in me)

You'll probably forget me, and I'll fade back in the fog
Just a face disappearing without trace, I'll be lost, I'll be lost

One day I'll hear some laughter in an out-of-town cafe
I'll be reaching for your number, I'll be calling out your name, calling out your name

I've been following the river, 'til it joins hands with the sea
I've been thinking of ya all the time
Cause you always saw the best in me

I'll be following the river oh my 'til it spills out in the sea
Oh, I've been thinking of you, oh dear
Cause you always saw the best in me
(Always saw the best in me)

I'll be following the river (yeah!) 'til it joins hands with the sea
Ah, if I can't have ya, I'll be dreaming all about ya
Cause you always saw the best in me

I'll be following the river 'til it spills out in the sea
I'll be thinking of ya, oh dear, cause you always saw the best in me
