The Faim – Where the River Runs Lyrics

Where the River Runs by The Faim:
When I was young maybe 7 or 8 years old
Looking for you dad it’s getting so late and cold
And you still hadn’t come home

Mum was yelling at you said you couldn’t stay
You took a hit from the bottle and drove away
But I knew where you’d go

You built a tower ‘round your heart
Four walls of cardboard in the dark
I know you slept there once
Down where there river runs

You told me son you’ll learn one day
Sometimes you try to run away
I thought you’d given up
Down where the river runs

Down where the river runs

All alone you were gone for 3/4 days
By the bridge coz the water made you feel safe
Like your problems would wash away

They all said I was a victim of a broken home
You built this castle but it crumbled so I made my own
But it fell down anyway

You built a tower ‘round your heart
Four walls of cardboard in the dark
I know you slept there once
Down where there river runs

You told me son you’ll learn one day
Sometimes you try to run away
I thought you’d given up
Down where the river runs

Where the river runs, where the river runs
Where the river runs, where the river runs
Where the river runs, where the river runs
Down where the river runs

You were a god just holding me in your arms
You dried my eyes from the coldest of thunderstorms ‘til the sky turned back to blue
Now I’m older I’ve been wanting to turn back time
Say all the words that I needed to by your side
Now your gone and I miss you

You built a tower ‘round your heart
Four walls of cardboard in the dark
I know you slept there once
Down where there river runs

You told me son you’ll learn one day
Sometimes you try to run away
I thought you’d given up
Down where the river runs

Down where the river runs
