Howard Jones — Let It Flow lyrics

Where are the new rebels
We didn't ask for this
Trying to be something different
We will fight the bigots
Fight them with our reason
Fight them with our constancy

Chorus
River, our river, let it flow
This is our lamp light
Let it glow
River, river, let it flow
This is our reason
Let it grow

Don't keep looking back
Living in the past
Never built a golden future. Have,
Have faith in the species
We've come to far to fail
I don't believe in our extinction

Everyone of us
Has got to take it on
Don't build a dam on evolution. There,
There are those who'd like us
To cling on to the past
Wallowing in their past glories

River, (don't)
Our river, (don't look back)
Let it flow (we might fall)
This is our lamp light
Let it glow (have faith in the future)
River, (don't)
River, (don't look back)
Let it flow (we might fall)
This is our reason
Let it grow
