Ben Howard – Rivers in Your Mouth Lyrics

Hold it in love
The river in your mouth is pouring out1
Water takes the
Shape of all that it surrounds2
Yeah I know
I’ve been trying so hard to keep in time
With all of the hours in your day
Hold it in babe3
Who let you out among the crowd?
Not like that
These streets will tear you down4
How it is
Under my skin,5 now you are
Pictures of all you’ll ever be6

I am not myself
Today
I am not feeling
Okay7

Hold it in love
The river in your mouth is pouring out
Water takes the
Shape of all that it’s around
Yeah I know
I been trying so hard to keep in time
With all of the sounds that you make
Hold it in babe
Come at you from both sides of your mind
Thick and thin these
Walls you’ll always stand behind8
Are sick and tired
Oh I beg for the world to change9
But it don’t
Oh I lean on you and that’s the thing10

I am not myself
Today
I am not feeling
Okay

And you
Showed me hope amidst the harlequins in spring11
And you
Told me life was learning how to be your friend12
