Paroles River Cross

Le - Par .

Always thought I'd cross that river
The other side distant now
As I got close it turned and widened
Arising now, fading out

Drifting off in the undertow
Can't spot a figure on dry land
And afterthoughts of safety
When in truth, none to be had
None to be had

I used to tell time by my shadow
Til the thunder clouds
They took the stage
These days will end, as do the light's rays
Another read of the same page

Wide awake through this deepest night
Still waiting on the sun
As the hours seem to multiply
Find a star to soldier on

Oh, living beneath a lion's paw
Knowing nothing can be tamed
Can be tamed

I want this dream to last forever
A wish denied to lengthen our time
I wish this moment was never ending
Let it be a lie that all future's die

While the government thrives on discontent
And there's no such thing as clear
Proselytizing and profitizing
As our will all but disappears
Folded over, forced in a choke hold
Outnumbered and held down

And all this talk of rapture
Look around at the promise now
Here and now
Here and now
Can't hold me down
Can't hold me down

Won't hold us down
Won't hold us down

Live it out
Let it out
Get it out
Shout it out
Won't hold us down
Won't hold us down

Share the light
Won't hold us down
Share the light
Won't hold us down
Share the light
Won't hold us down

Share the light
Won't hold us down
Share the light
Won't hold us down
Share the light
Won't hold us down

Share the light
Won't hold us down
Share the light
Won't hold us down
Share the light
Won't hold us down

(Hold us down)
