Lyrics:

Would you give me one more chance

If I agree to your demands

Or will you turn the knife

Keep me in pain till I can’t take no more

Would you take the breath of my life

Or are you lookin’ for something

I never do right

I should be the one to let go

I could free your body and soul

 

So here we stand like actors in a play

On an empty stage not knowin’ what to say

I tried so hard to get through to you

‘Cos don’t you know I still need you

Oh, I need you

 

If I ask for one more night

Would you let me bathe in your light

Would you let me cover you up

And wrap myself around you

So you feel my love

Is this just the heat of the day

Or am I really feelin’ this way

I see your silent teas before the storm

I feel the breeze from a love that’s gone

 

You’ve always walked on the open sand

You’d risk it all so I’d reach out my hand

I tried so hard to hold on to you

‘Cos don’t you know I still need you

 

Sail the river and drift away

Find yourself on another day

Don’t reach out

You have to hold me in bay

‘Cos I will always follow you

Take a knife and cut me down

Spill my blood

Watch it fall to the ground

There’s no way to turn me around

‘Cos I will always follow you

Be a part of you

 

If I was to offer my life

I’d give it up just to

Bathe in your light

And you could have it

You could have it all

My heart, my body, my soul

Is this just the heat of the day

Or am I really feelin’ this way

I wipe away the tears

Before the storm

I feel the breeze

From a love that’s gone

 

 

So here we stand with nothing left to say

I give it all but you turn me away

I tried so hard to get through to you

But don’t you know I still need you

 

Sail the river and drift away

Find yourself on another day

Don’t reach out

You have to hold me in bay

‘Cos I will always follow you

Take a knife and cut me down

Spill my blood

Watch it fall to the ground

There’s no way to turn me around

‘Cos I will always follow you

Be a part of you

 

Sail the river and drift away

Find yourself on another day

Sail the river and drift away

‘Cos I will always follow you

I will always be a part of you

 

Sail the river and drift away

Sail the river and drift away

Sail the river

Sail the river and drift away

Sail the river and drift away

Sail the river
