"River Lea" lyrics

River Lea

Everybody tells me
It's about time that I moved on
And I need to learn to lighten up
And learn how to be young
But my heart is a valley
It's so shallow and man made
I'm scared to death if I let you in
That you'll see I'm just a fake

Sometimes I feel lonely
In the arms of your touch
But I know that's just me
Cause nothing ever is enough
When I was a child
I grew up by the River Lea
There was something in the water
Now that something's in me
Oh I can't go back
But the reeds are growing out of my fingertips
I can't go back to the river

But it's in my roots
In my veins
In my blood and I stain
Every heart that I use
To heal the pain

Oh, it's in my roots
In my veins
In my blood and I stain
Every heart that I use
To heal the pain

So I blame it on the River Lea
The River Lea
The River Lea
Yeah I blame it on the River Lea
The River Lea
The River Lea

I should probably tell you now
Before it's way too late
That I never meant to hurt you
Or to lie straight to your face
Consider this my apology
I know it's years in advance
But I'd rather say it now
In case I never get the chance
No I can't go back
But the reeds are growing out of my fingertips
I can't go back to the river

But it's in my roots
In my veins
In my blood and I stain
Every heart that I use
To heal the pain

Oh, it's in my roots
In my veins
In my blood and I stain
Every heart that I use
To heal the pain

So I blame it on the River Lea
The River Lea
The River Lea
Yeah I blame it on the River Lea
The River Lea
The River Lea

So I blame it on the River Lea
The River Lea
The River Lea
Yeah I blame it on the River Lea
The River Lea
The River Lea
