Lyrics

Klamath version

You gotta have a rhythm, you gotta have a song
A 1-2, 1-2-3
You gotta try to keep your balance on
When I move with you, the world moves with me
And then we're closing our eyes
Like a river that's reaching the sea

Out of the way, let's get out of the way
Don't you want to see the lights
That shine behind the day
Timing is everything for a simple melody
Losing itself in a song
Like a river that's reaching the sea

Maybe it all gets paid forward
I guess without trust, it's all for show
And maybe you can take me
Where I want to go
Where I'm never lost
And nothing touches me
Let me pour in your arms
Like a river that's reaching the sea

Brannan St. version

You gotta have a rhythm, you gotta have a song
A 1-2, 1-2-3
You gotta try to keep your balance on
When I dance with you, the world moves with me
And in the current, I disappear
Like a river that's reaching the sea

Out of the way, let's get out of the way
I wanna see the lights
That hide behind the day
And you're never happy and I'm never free
So let's lose ourselves
Like a river that's reaching the sea

Maybe it all gets paid forward
Without trust, it's all for show
And maybe you will take me
Where I want to go
Where I'm never lost
Where nothing touches me
Where I can pour into your arms
Like a river that's reaching the sea
