Lyrics

You used to call me wicked (wicked)
I used to call you friend (friend)
They say your life is wild
Compared to what (compared to what)
Lifestyle (lifestyle)
You must have many things to remember (remember)
‘Cause nothing else in your life has really changed
Everything is almost like it was before
And I don’t want to do this anymore

When you lose your sight
(Love is like a river)
And there’s nothing to see
(Love is like a river)
She was just like me
(Love is like a river)
And suddenly the day comes

Some call it love
Some say they’re above that (above that)
Well, I believed in love
I called it worth it (worth it)

Some call me all the time
(Love is like a river)
Well, love is like a river
(Love is like a river)
And when you lose your sight
And suddenly the day comes

Oh…

Everything all around me is electric now
But I haven’t burned a candle in a real long time
And only when your heart says it’s over does it die
Well, love is like a river running
Straight back to the sea (straight back)

Some call it love
Some say they’re above it (above that)
Well, I believed in love
I called it worth it (worth it)

Well, some call me all the time (all the time)
(Love is like a river)
I say you can’t stay home and give up the fight
(Love is like a river)
I think you’re uptight, lady (uptight)
Ooh, out of sight
That’s just what I wanted to hear
Ooh, out of sight

You know you can’t stay home in the middle of the night
(Love is like a river)
You can’t say no in the middle of the night
(Love is like a river)
I think you’re uptight, lady (uptight)
Ooh, out of sight
And you can’t say no in the middle of the night
(Love is like a river)

Well, I think you’re uptight, lady, uptight, lady
Ooh, out of sight, out of sight, baby
