This River Is Wild (The Killers)

The leaves are falling down on the beautiful ground I heard a story from the man in red He said the leaves are falling down Such a beautiful sound Son, I think you better go ahead But you always hold your head up high Cause it's a long, long, long way down This town was meant for passing through Boy, it ain't nothin' new Now go and show 'em that the world stayed round But it's a long, long, long way down You better run for the hills before they burn Listen to the sound of the world Then watch it turn I just wanna show you what I know Then catch you in the current and let you go Or I should I just get along with myself I never did get along with everybody else I've been trying hard to do what's right But you know I could stay here All night And watch the clouds fall from the sky This river is wild This river is wild... Run for the hills before they burn Listen to the sound of the world Then watch it turn Sometimes I'm nervous when I talk Sometimes I hate the line I walk I just wanna show you what I know Then catch you in the current and let you go Or I should I just get along with myself I never did get along with everybody else I've been trying hard to do what's right But you know I could stay here All night And watch the clouds fall from the sky Because this river is wild Godspeed ya, boy This river is wild Now Adam's taking bombs And he's stuck on his mom Because that bitch keeps trying to make him pray He's met the hippie in the park Comin' over the dark Just trying to get some of that little girl play You better run for the hills before they burn Listen to the sound of the world Then watch it turn Or I should I just get along with myself I never did get along with everybody else I've been trying hard to do what's right But you know I could stay here All night And watch the clouds fall from the sky The pain is hell in me tonight Because this river is wild Godspeed ya, boy This river is wild This river is wild Godspeed ya, boy This river is wild Now the cars are everywhere Face the dust at the fairground I don't think I've ever seen so many headlights But there's something pulling me The circus and their crew Well they're just passing through Making sure that merry still goes 'round But it's a long, long, long way down
