The River Lyrics

[Intro: Briton Bond]
Trust is dead, like everything else you said
Each word more meaningless than the next
Your lips and your lies have severed the ties
I don't deserve this and you don't deserve me!

[Verse 1: Briton Bond]
I should've known but I doubted myself
Gave you every benefit of a doubt, I wanted no one else!
But I guess I wasn't enough for you!
*cough, cough, cough* BLEGH!

[Chorus: Briton Bond]
Don't pretend like we can recover
When you chose the lust of another

[Verse 2: Briton Bond]
Where did I go wrong?
I know I wasn't perfect but I certainly tried so hard
Was it a moment of weakness, or was it the thrill?
Did you ache for a feeling, that you faked to feel?

[Chorus: Briton Bond]
Don't pretend like we can recover
When you chose the lust of another

[Bridge: Briton Bond]
I see your wandering eyes and second glances
I see, through your lies, no second chances!

[Verse 3: Briton Bond]
Cut me free, you'll never be what I need
I hope you choke on the words I was led to believe
Like a puppet on your strings; control means everything!
And in my heart, I want to forgive you
That doesn't mean I'll forget, you'll always be my regret!
You'll always be my regret!

[Outro: Briton Bond]
Here's to a past I'll never need
No here’s to you
Rest in peace!
