Kingsley Flood - Waiting On the River to Rise Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Wake well past midnight
  • to the burden of bills
  • and the screaming quiet
  • We swam along just fine
  • then she broke her back
  • and a bank broke mine
  • Now I’m at the kitchen table putting numbers on the paper and dodging the mirror on the wall
  • And I swear I’d drive til the sun gave light, I need just a little push is all
  • And I’d build my boat so tall so wide, but I’m still waiting on the river to rise
  • I was born by the book
  • I keep my carpet clean
  • And my money earned
  • Why is the TV man
  • always smiling at me
  • I wonder who he burned
  • How come everybody for the common man never looks quite like me
  • They’re running on the sun with their shoes undone and they never seem to burn their feet
  • And I’d build my boat so tall so wide, but I’m still waiting on the river to rise
  • Scratch tickets on my shelf
  • Stains on my knees
  • Pennies in my well
  • I got faith in faith
  • Because the other choice
  • Is no choice at all
  • Now there’s a man in the sky that I done right by and he ain’t done right by me
  • And I never asked forgiveness for the things I done but you just wait and see
  • I will build my boat so tall so wide and I won’t be waiting on the river to rise
  • No I won’t be waiting on the river to rise
