CAPO #FRET4 (transpose key B)

* I've been a liarEm, been a thief

BeenG a loveCr, been a cheat

All myD sins Emneed holy water

feelG it washCing over me

Well, littDle one

I dEmon't want to admit to somGething C

If all it's gonna cause is painD

TrEmuth and my lies righGt now

are fallCing like the rain

So let the river run


He'Ems comin' home with his neck scratched

to catcGh flack   C

Sweat jackets and dress slacks, misDmatched

On Emhis breath's Jack, he's a sex addict

And sheG just wants to exaCct revenge and get back


It'Ds a chessEm match,

she's on his back like a jetG-pack

She's keptC track of all his Internet chats

And gueDss who just

hapEmpens to be movin' on to the next

ActuGally, just shitC on my last chick

and she has what my ex lackDs


'CausEme she loves danger, psycGhopath

AndC you don't fuck with no man's girl

even I kDnow that

ButEm she's devised some plan

to stab him in Gthe back

KnifeC in hand, says their relationship's

hangin' by Da strand


SoEm she's been on the web lately

SaysG maybeC she'll be my Gwen Stacy

To spiteD her man

AndEm I know she's using me

To tryG to play him, I dCon't care

Hi Suzanne, but I shoulda said "Bye Suzanne"

After the first night, but tonight I am

( REPEAT * )

OneEm-night stand

Turned to a two-night stand

It was "comeG sunliCght, scram,

"now we hug tight, and...


He Dfound outEm

now she feels deserted and used

'CausGe he leftC

so what? He did it first to her tooD

Now howEm am I supposed to tell

this girl that we're through? G

It's hardC to find the words,

I'm aloof, nervous, and SueD

Don't want this to hurtEm

but what you deserve is the truth

Don't takeG it personalC,

I just can't say this in person to youD


So EmI revert to the studio

like hole-in-Gthe-wall dinCers

Don't have to be reserved in a boothD

I jEmust feel like the person

who I'm turning into's

IrreGversibleC, I preyed on you

like it's church at the pew


AndD now that I gotEm you I don't want you

Took advantage in my thirGst to pursueC

Why do I do this dirt that I do?

GetD on my soapEmbox and preach

my sermon and speech

DetGergent and bleacCh is burnin' the wound

'Cause now with her in the womb

We can't bring her in this world, shoulda knew

To use protection 'fore I bit into your forbidden fruit

Fuck!

( REPEAT * )

My Emname's (ooh), my Gname's (ooh)

RiveCr (ooh), river run

Call Emme (ooh), call Gme (ooh)

RivCer (ooh), we'll let the river run


AlwaCys the bridesmaid, never “The bride, hey!”

FuckD can I say? If life was a highway

AndBm deceit was an enclave

I'd be swerving in five lanes

SpeeEmds at a high rateD, like I'm slidin' on ice,

MayCbe, That's why

I may have came at you sidewayDs

I can't keep my lies straight

But I madeBm you terminate my baby

This love triangle left us in a wreck, tanglEmed

What else can I sayC? It was fun for a while

Bet I really woulda loved your smile

Didn't really wanna abort, but fuck it

What's one more lie, to tell our unborn child?

( REPEAT * )

River LYRICS

CAPO #FRET4 (transpose key B)

* I've been a liar, been a thief
Been a lover, been a cheat
All my sins need holy water
feel it washing over me
Well, little one
I don't want to admit to something
If all it's gonna cause is pain
Truth and my lies right now
are falling like the rain
So let the river run

He's comin' home with his neck scratched
to catch flack  
Sweat jackets and dress slacks, mismatched
On his breath's Jack, he's a sex addict
And she just wants to exact revenge and get back

It's a chess match,
she's on his back like a jet-pack
She's kept track of all his Internet chats
And guess who just
happens to be movin' on to the next
Actually, just shit on my last chick
and she has what my ex lacks

'Cause she loves danger, psychopath
And you don't fuck with no man's girl
even I know that
But she's devised some plan
to stab him in the back
Knife in hand, says their relationship's
hangin' by a strand

So she's been on the web lately
Says maybe she'll be my Gwen Stacy
To spite her man
And I know she's using me
To try to play him, I don't care
Hi Suzanne, but I shoulda said "Bye Suzanne"
After the first night, but tonight I am
( REPEAT * )
One-night stand
Turned to a two-night stand
It was "come sunlight, scram,
"now we hug tight, and...


He found out
now she feels deserted and used
'Cause he left
so what? He did it first to her too
Now how am I supposed to tell
this girl that we're through?
It's hard to find the words,
I'm aloof, nervous, and Sue
Don't want this to hurt
but what you deserve is the truth
Don't take it personal,
I just can't say this in person to you

So I revert to the studio
like hole-in-the-wall diners
Don't have to be reserved in a booth
I just feel like the person
who I'm turning into's
Irreversible, I preyed on you
like it's church at the pew

And now that I got you I don't want you
Took advantage in my thirst to pursue
Why do I do this dirt that I do?
Get on my soapbox and preach
my sermon and speech
Detergent and bleach is burnin' the wound
'Cause now with her in the womb
We can't bring her in this world, shoulda knew
To use protection 'fore I bit into your forbidden fruit
Fuck!
( REPEAT * )
My name's (ooh), my name's (ooh)
River (ooh), river run
Call me (ooh), call me (ooh)
River (ooh), we'll let the river run

Always the bridesmaid, never “The bride, hey!”
Fuck can I say? If life was a highway
And deceit was an enclave
I'd be swerving in five lanes
Speeds at a high rate, like I'm slidin' on ice,
Maybe, That's why
I may have came at you sideways
I can't keep my lies straight
But I made you terminate my baby
This love triangle left us in a wreck, tangled
What else can I say? It was fun for a while
Bet I really woulda loved your smile
Didn't really wanna abort, but fuck it
What's one more lie, to tell our unborn child?
( REPEAT * )
