Riverman lyrics by Noel Gallagher

Riverman lyrics by Noel Gallagher


Taken from Noel's second solo album, Chasing Yesterday.

Inspiration for the song apparently came from a night out with Morrissey and Russell Brand where Noel and Morrissey got nice and drunk.

Riverman lyrics

It's something in the way she moves to destruction
I travelled all this way to try and make amends
Cause heavy in the air are the words that she left hanging
I tried to walk away but I only stand and stare

The late night comes
All that love that was left behind
Is gone
When the river man runs
Bring me the girl who electrifies the stone
In a while she'll be gone

We are waiting in the rain
My feet turned wet from standing
I shouted out my name
Behind a rainbow's end

But somewhere in the crowd she heard me jingle janging
Like a memory that fades
She slips and waits for a game

The late night comes
All that love that was left behind
Is gone
When the river man runs
Bring me the girl who electrifies the stone
In a while she'll be gone

The late night comes
All that love that was left behind
Is gone
When the river man runs
Bring me the girl who electrifies the stone
In a while she'll be gone

The river man runs
The river man runs
The river man runs
The river man runs

No word from Noel's management if he's listen the Mortal Engines audiobook. We suggest he does as it's a fine read. And if you don't like that, check out the words to U2's song The Little Things That Give You Away.
