DOWN THE RIVER

Single released by JUST on September 17th 2021

Label: Sharkin' Around Music

Down The River is a nostalgic and melancholic song about the days when we were young. And how we thought we knew the world and ourselves. That nothing would change. But friends come and go while we are all floating down our own river.

LYRICS

I remember days of summer
The riverbanks and the friends I used to meet
Getting drunk on stingy liquer
The smell of burning driftwood at my feet

We felt like brothers
Stared into the flames
We yelled and shivered
As we stormed into the waves
We thought we'd never change, but

Time washed away our names
The water moves so slow
Till we're caught by the undertow

Down the river
Down the river
We're floating down the river and let go

I recall those nights together
The sweetest scent and the starbursts in my head
Locked ourselves inside forever
I listened to the gentle words you said

We felt like lovers
You stung me with your charms
We laughed and whispered
We stole each others heart
We said we'd never part, but

Time washed away our names
The water moves so slow
Till we're caught by the undertow

Time washed away our names
We cannot turn the tide
We're losing track on the other side

Who we are?
Who we are?
All I can see a face in a memory

Who we are?
Who we are?
All I can see a face in a memory

Time washed away our names
The water moves so slow
Till we're caught by the undertow

Time washed away our names
We cannot turn the tide
We're losing track on the other side

Down the river
Down the river
We're floating down the river and let go
