From the album I'm In
The River Runs Dry
You go ahead. You may just fool them all.
You can be tricky with words.
But you will find you’re heading for a fall.
You’ll get what you deserve.
So go ahead and baby bat your eyes
We’ll see right through your thin disguise
You’d better act much better girl before it’s too late
So truth better be told
Cause you too, will grow old
And one day be left there to cry
For love is a river
A taker, a giver
And sometimes the river runs dry.
Well I know that you think you know it all
But you know nothing my child
How can you run when you can barely crawl
Let alone walk for a while
So crocodile go cry your tears
I’ve seen ‘em come and go on you for years
I’m only trying to save you from predictable fate
