Co-written with Nikki Dean.

lyrics

The thing about a river is she's been here forever
And she's deeper than she looks
Quiet steady current softens all the edges
Of even jagged rocks

No one knows why the river flows
Where she starts or where she ends
Silent as a mirror but strong enough to take you with her
That's the thing about a river

But the thing about a river is she only flows downstream
Yeah she never turns around
She'll lift you up or pull you in ain't much in between
If you float or if you drown

No one knows why the river flows
Where she starts or where she ends
Silent as a mirror but strong enough to take you with her
That's the thing about a river

She's the path of least resistance
Try to follow where she leads
If you're listenin' you can hear her whisper
She'll tell you everything you need
