Lyrics
Tried to keep you close to me,
But life got in between
Tried to square not being there
But think that I should have been
Hold Back The River, let me look in your eyes
Hold Back The River so I
Can stop for a minute and see where you hide
Hold Back The River, hold back

Once upon a dear friend life
We rode our bikes into the sky
With love we call against the tide
Those distant days are flashing by

Hold Back The River, let me look in your eyes
Hold Back The River so I
Can stop for a minute and be at your side
Hold Back The River, hold back
Hold Back The River, let me look in your eyes
Hold Back The River so I
Can stop for a minute and see where you hide
Hold Back The River, hold back
Hold oho, oho, oho, oho
Oho, oho, oho, oho

Lonely water, lonely water won't you let us wander
Let us hold each other
Lonely water, lonely water won't you let us wander
Let us hold each other
Hold Back The River, let me look in your eyes
Hold Back The River so I
Can stop for a minute and be at your side
Hold Back The River, hold back
Hold Back The River, let me look in your eyes
Hold Back The River so I
Can stop for a minute and see where you hide
Hold Back The River, hold back

Lonely water, lonely water won't you let us wander
Let us hold each other
Lonely water, lonely water won't you let us wander
Let us hold each other.
