Hold Back The River

Original and similar lyrics
Tried to keep you close to me, But life got in between Tried to square not being there But think that I should've been 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 Once upon a different life We rode our bikes into the sky But now we're caught against the tide Those distant days all flashing by Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes Hold back the river, so I Can stop for a minute and be by your side Hold back the river, hold back 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 Oh, oho, oho, oho, oho Oho, oho, oho, oho 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 Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes Hold back the river, so I Can stop for a minute and be by your side Hold back the river, hold back Hold back the river, let me look in your eyes Hold back the river, so I Can stop for a minute and be by your side Hold back the river, hold 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

Riverside

AGNES OBEL "Philharmonics"
Down by the river by the boats Where everybody goes to be alone Where you won't see any rising sun Down to the river we will run When by the water we drink to the dregs Look at the stones on the river bed I can tell from your eyes You've never been by the riverside Down by the water the riverbed Somebody calls you somebody says Swim with the current and float away Down by the river everyday Oh my God I see how everything is torn in the river deep And I don't know why I go the way Down by the riverside When that old river runs pass your eyes To wash off the dirt on the riverside Go to the water so very near The river will be your eyes and ears I walk to the borders on my own To fall in the water just like a stone Chilled to the marrow in them bones Why do I go here all alone [x2:] Oh my God I see how everything is torn in the river deep And I don't know why I go the way Down by the riverside Oh oh, hey hey [x3] Down by the riverside [x2]

Holy Water

BIG & RICH
Somewhere there's a stolen halo I use to watch her wear it well Everything would shine wherever she would go But looking at her now you'd never tell Someone ran away with her innocence A memory she can't get out of her head I can only imagine what she's feeling When she's praying Kneeling at the edge of her bed And she says take me away And take me farther Surround me now And hold, hold, hold me like holy water Holy water She wants someone to call her angel Someone to put the light back in her eyes She's looking through the faces And unfamiliar places She needs someone to hear her when she crys And she says take me away And take me farther Surround me now And hold, hold, hold me like holy water Holy water She just needs a little help To wash away the pain she's felt She wants to feel the healing hands Of someone who understands And she says take me away And take me farther Surround me now And hold, hold, hold me And she says take me away And take me farther Surround me now And hold, hold, hold me like holy water Holy water

The River

JORDAN FELIZ
I know a place where we can go To lay the troubles down eating your soul I know a place where mercy flows Take the stains make you whiter than snow Like a tide, it is rising up deep inside a current that moves and makes you come alive Living water that brings the dead to life We're going down to the river Down to the river, down to the river to pray Let's get washed by the water Washed by the water and rise up in amazing grace Let's go down, down, down to the river (You will leave changed) Let's go down, down, down to the river (Never the same) I've seen it move in my own life Took me from dusty roads into paradise All of my dirt, all of my shame Drowned in the streams that've made me born again Like a tide, it is rising up deep inside a current that moves and makes you come alive Living water that brings the dead to life We're going down to the river Down to the river, down to the river to pray Let's get washed by the water Washed by the water and rise up in amazing grace Let's go down, down, down to the river (You will leave changed) Let's go down, down, down to the river (Never the same) Let's go down [x3] We're going down to the river Down to the river, down to the river to pray Let's get washed by the water Washed by the water and rise up in amazing grace Let's go down, down, down to the river (You will leave changed) Let's go down, down, down to the river (Never the same) Gotta go, gotta go, gotta go in amazing grace [x2]

Hold Me

JOAN JETT AND THE BLACKHEARTS "Glorious Results Of A Misspent Youth"
(Joan Jett/Kenny Laguna/Ricky Byrd) No tears for us tonight, we've really got to try Everybody's got their problems And secrets that they try to hide No fight or fuss tonight, be gentle as you can Everyone thinks I'm stronger, Much stronger than I am I get scared and lonely And I need someone to hold me I get scared and lonely And I need someone to hold me Just like you do There's no place left to go When you're runnin' from yourself It's easy when you draw conclusions While you're lookin' at someone else I tell the truth to you we've really got a lot There is no time for sympathy I think we ought to take a shot Honey, I get scared and lonely And I need someone to hold me I get scared and lonely And I need someone to hold me Just like you do Just take my hand, we'll find our way through We won't be afraid 'cause We've got each other to hold on to Honey, I get scared and lonely And I need someone to hold me I get scared and lonely And I need someone to hold me someone like you I get scared and lonely And I need someone to hold me, just like you do

Stone River

JJ CALE "To Tulsa And Back"
Stone river Water ain't runnin' no more Stone river Water ain't runnin' no more Man he done cut if off And moved it all around There ain't no river runnin' No water can't be found Stone river Water ain't runnin' no more Fish ain't swimmin' Ain't no fish around nowhere Fish ain't swimmin' Ain't nobody seem to care They botteled up and dammed it Choked it up and jammed it Killed the life around it And stole it like a bandit Stone river Water ain't runnin' no more What used to be a river Now is just an empty site Ain't no vegetation It's just an agitation It don't seem right There ain't no trees a growin' No animals are showin' What used to be a stream Is now just a dream Stone river Water ain't runnin' nowhere Stone river Water ain't runnin' no more Man he done cut it off And moved it all around There ain't no river runnin' No water can't be found Stone river Water ain't runnin' no more They botteled up and dammed it Choked it up and jammed it Killed the life around it And stole it like a bandit Stone river Water ain't runnin' no more There ain't no trees a growin' No animals are showin' What used to be a stream Is now just a dream Stone river Water ain't runnin' nowhere Stone river Water ain't runnin' no more
