Birdy – Just Like A River Does Lyrics

Just Like A River Does Lyrics – Birdy

I always cry on the train back home
Watchin’ the world outside I used to know
As soon as I get there
I have to go

And the years go by, I don’t even know where I’ve been
In the blink of an eye, could’ve all been a dream
Will I ever find somewhere
To call my own?
As soon as I get there
I have to go

We’re two hands meant to shape the land
Just like a river does, just like a river does
And now the day breaks and I have to go away
Run like a river does, on and on like a river does

And the landscape has changed since last I was here
Some people stay and some disappear
But I’ll always remember
This part of me
And I can’t help but wonder
How I ever leave

We’re two hands meant to shape the land
Just like a river does, just like a river does
Now the day breaks and I have to go away
Run like a river does, on and on like a river does

Oh, oh-oh, oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh, oh
Ooh, ooh-ooh, woo

We’re two hands meant to shape the land
Just like a river does, just like a river does
Now the day breaks and I have to go away
Run like a river does, on and on like a river does

So I bottle the sound of the wind in the trees
Follow the salt in the air down to the sea
Just like a river does
Just like a river does
