Where the riverboat swayed beneath the sun

                        B(v.1) x2
Is where the river runs red

E(v.2) x2
Like a king who stalks the wings and shoots a dove

                       B(v.1) x2
And frees an eagle instead

It's more or less the same as the things that you said.

Verse 2 (same as Verse 1)

I see trouble up the road
Like the thing you found in love are by the way
And like to cheat on your soul
Like the best and worst of thoughts that lose control
Before you lie on your bed
It's more or less the same as the things that you said.
