River Lyrics

Play "River"
on Amazon Music

Like a river
Like a river
Like a river
Like a river
Like a river
Like a river

Shut your mouth and run me like a river
How do you fall in love?
Harder than a bullet could hit ya
How do we fall apart?
Faster than a hair pin...

    I think her interpretation is all about empowerment and not standing down when weak against someone else. Being able to stand up when doubted or pushed back

    It sounds kinky in a way. The lyrics can be taken in many different ways.

    So, in an interview she explained that this song is about not backing down, in her words "tension and release. Staring someone down and not backing down.. Which when I hear it, that's what I feel. Raw emotion and just like "here I am, shut your mouth and do something or fuck off." "Shut your mouth, baby, stand and deliver." Which is why I love it. Actions > words.

    I think she is saying that love is just too much. It comes to quick and you lose it just as fast. So just shut up and bang her. It sounds like an extremely sexual song to me.
