Back Down The River

Written by:

I know that we're going to be together, you and me.

For more than a rhyme or two, your time belongs to me.
Rowing back down my river,
Chasing my tail to the sea;
Rowing back down my river,
Trying my best to be me.

Watching your crazy ways and all the lazy days,
Digging you more and more, the more I see your face.
Rowing back down my river,
Trying my best to be free;
Rowing back down my river,
Chasing my tail to the sea.

Watching the simple things to help me grow along.
Loving the notes you bring to help me sing my song.
Rowing back down my river,
Trying my best to be me;
Rowing back down my river,
Singing my songs to the sea.

I know that we're going to be together, you and me.
For more than a time or two, your rhymes belong to me.
Rowing back down my river,
Chasing my tail to the sea;
Rowing back down my river,
Trying my best to be me.
