Patty Smyth — River Of Love lyrics

I been standin' on the water's edge
Now you want to pull me in
But I been standin here too long
I can't remember if I can swim
Do you believe that people change
Now baby
Tell me that you see a change in me
I'm ready to begin

Cause I climbed a mountain, that ain't so tough
Now I'm going down to the river of love
I made some money, it's never enough
Now I'm going down to the river of love
Follow me down, down, down to the river

Now your big blue skies
And your deep blue water
Will not wash away the past
But to my heart I will surrender
And swear this time will be the last

And maybe I'm afraid of losing baby
Maybe it'd be worse to win
Either way I'm jumping in

I climbed a mountain, that ain't so tough
Now I'm going down to the river of love
I made some money, it's never enough
Now I'm going down to the river of love
Follow me down, down, down to the river

And I was thirsty baby
You came and filled me up
And now I'm ready, ready baby
To drown in your river of love

I climbed a mountain, that ain't so tough
Now I'm going down to the river of love
If it's too sweet I may never come up
I'm going down to the river of love

I've moved some mountains, that ain't so tough
Now I'm going down to the river of love
If it's too sweet I may never come up
I wanna drown in your river of love
Follow me down, down, down
To the river
