Lyrics
THE RIVER (HOW DO YOU WANT ME) - music and lyrics by Richard C. Tollini (Kluso) c 2007
(1st Verse)
Funny how it seems we've lost touch with the days of our youth
as the moments when our waking dreams drift off like luminary seams of currents
On the misty morning river
(PreChorus)
And strange as it seems I forgot how much I love you
A fading light that no longer shines upon my life
(2nd Verse)
Now somehow I just realized no longer can I recognize the faces from the days of our youth, and
Amazingly it seems how when reached our lifelong dreams it slipped away just as the autumn turns to winter
And strange as it seems I forgot how much I love you
A fading light that no longer shines upon my life So tell me..
(Chorus)
how do you want me to love you again
Because now somehow we've lost our way
And I will follow your lead with my pledge to you
So tell me how do you want me to be
(Chorus Refrain)
And I will follow your lead with my pledge to you
So tell me how do you want me to be
(3d Verse)
Now we've come all the way back again to the places we first met as friends in the soft glow of the days of our youth
And I can feel the clutch of your embrace before I'm falling swept away on the raging waves of a muddy white capped river
And strange as it seems I forgot how much I love you
your graceful light shines on the path back to your heart
So tell me...
how do you want me to love you again
. because now somehow we've found our way
And I will follow your lead with my pledge to you
So tell me how do you want me to be
(Outtro - chorus refrain)
And I will follow your lead with my pledge to you
So tell me how do you want me to be
