River Lyrics

Its comin' on christmas,
cutting down trees,
putting up reindeer,
singing songs of joy and peace
oh i wish i had a river,
i could skate away on

it don't snow here,
it stays pretty green,
Im gonna make a lot of money
then I'm gonna quit...

    When I hear this song, I think the story is that he has depression, and had a struggle to be happy. While it's Christmas and everyone else is filled with joy, she just wants to escape. She says "I lossed the best baby, I ever had" I think her child was take from her because she couldn't take of her her :( it's a very sad but meaningful song

    i see it as a very sad song...showing how while everyone else at christmas time is left with great bliss and joy one person needs and wants a river to escape from it all cuz they are in a darker place (such as losing a baby) and the one thing they want for christmas is a river to escape
    to (skate away on) my only favourite christmas song because it explains the true meaning of christmas hope and the struggle to find it and I too want only river to skate away.
