take me to the river

Take me to the river; won’t make it better, but it’ll make the pain go away for now. Hold me close, wrapped in your sweater. You say you’ll love me forever, but I don’t know how. You’d float away like a feather, if I gave this all my heart would allow. Take me to the river, that’ll work for now.

I’m sensitive and a little broken, for this I know. I’m soft spoken, but rough from the grow. I’m awoken from all that I know. I don’t know the correct way to flow or which parts of me to show because I’m not ready to take the blow if I do something wrong on the first go.

Take me to the river; won’t make it better, but it’ll make the pain go away for now. Hold me close, wrapped in your sweater. You say you’ll love me forever, but I don’t know how. You’d float away like a feather, if I gave this all my heart would allow. Take me to the river, that’ll work for now.

I don’t know how to let myself grow. I’ve never been a pro, for this I know. I’ve never gone with the flow, I never got the memo. Everything I outgrow, everything in each old photo, I’ll watch it all glow with every color in the rainbow, but little does he know… nobody will let him let it show.

Take me to the river; won’t make it better, but it’ll make the pain go away for now. Hold me close, wrapped in your sweater. You say you’ll love me forever, but I don’t know how. You’d float away like a feather, if I gave this all my heart would allow. Take me to the river, that’ll work for now.

Take me to the river, watch my pain start to sliver through the holes in your sweater. Say you love me forever, but I don’t know how. You’d float away like a feather, if I gave this all my heart would allow. Take me to the river, it’ll work for now.

Take me to the river; won’t make it better, but it’ll make the pain go away for now. Hold me close, wrapped in your sweater. You say you’ll love me forever, but I don’t know how. You’d float away like a feather, if I gave this all my heart would allow. Take me to the river, that’ll work for now.
