Elton John - "Slow Rivers" lyrics

The weather man he looks confused Shakes his fist at the sky like you used to do But you don't remember things like that do you The balance was uneven but I'm breaking through

Slow rivers run cold Shallow waters never sank so low I thought I'd drown and you'd never know You're a slow river and you run so cold

The winter here don't believe in God The bitter wind just bites through me like a wild dog I still see your eyes tonight like headlights through the fog But one foot in your door oh that's all I ever got

Chances are you'll reappear Swim my way in a flood of tears No place to hide your conscience so You're a sinking ship with no place to go
