Lyrics
:

The future�s deserted waiting there for you and me
No past is going to stop us blowing down this road apiece
Why we�ve come too far, too far to turn back now
We can�t just throw it all away when something good goes wrong, oh no
Nothing has been written which says which way we have to go
I�m not looking for commitment written in stone
No everlasting promise no no

Let the river
Let the river run 
Let the water
Let the water fall
Flow down off the mountain
Into the sea
Let the river run, run its course

We�ve stood this ground too long there�s miles to make up
Oh it�s way past the time we found out if we�re truly good enough
There�s no truth like the truth you dare to let yourself see
Better face it now there is nothing to fear
Everything to gain right in here

Let the river
Let the river run 
Let the water
Let the water fall
Flow down off the mountain 
Into the sea
Let the river run
Let the river run
Run its course

Let the river
Let the river run 
Let the water
Let the water fall
Flow down off the mountain
Into the sea
Let the river run

Let the river run 
Let the water fall

Let the river run 
Let the water fall

Mike Peters Notes
:This is a very confessional song dealing with a relationship that has lasted a very long time and is in danger of turning sour. This is about reaffirming the values that made the relationship special in the first place but more importantly not putting too much pressure on for any firm commitment to the future, but to take life as it comes day by day.
(Shelter official fanzine, 1991)
