Squier

It's comin' on twilight, and all the world's at ease
They're pullin' down the curtains, sailin' off to sweet release
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on
But me I'm not so quiet - I'm restless and I'm mean
I won't let you know I'm bleedin', that I'm crawlin on my knees
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on
I wish I had a river so long I would teach my feet to fly
I wish I had a river I could skate away on
I made my baby cry
I tried hard to help her, let her do as she pleased
And I loved her so naughty - made her weak in the knees
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on
We're so hard to handle - we're selfish and we're sad
And we throw away those precious things we work so hard to have
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on
I wish I had a river so deep I would swim away from time
I wish I had a river I could skate away on
Do we have to say goodbye
It's comin' on daybreak, and everyone's at peace
They're dreamin' bout deliverance from the wounds that will not cease
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on
But me I'm not so lucky - I'm anxious and I'm lean
I've made a tone of money but I can't buy out this scene
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on
I wish I had a river so long I would teach my feet to fly
I wish I had a river I skate away on
I have to say goodbye
