Bon Jovi River Runs Dry Lyrics

I didn’t want to say it in this way

I didn’t want to see the day I’d say these words to you

I didn’t want have to explain

Sometimes heroes have to lose

It’s killing me to see you cry

Would it make it any better if I told you I did it all for you

It was just another roll of the dice

Just another star in the sky

Tried to touch it but I couldn’t fly

[Chorus:]

Everybody knows the promise of the river

Everybody goes with the fire in their eyes

Everybody knows you can lead a horse to water

But there’s nothing anybody can do

Rivers run dry

Gonna have to go away

I always told you that a man has got to face his own mistakes

Sometimes you get a lucky break

Sometimes your winning streak will stay

Sometimes you gotta pay

[Chorus:]

Everybody knows the promise of the river

Everybody goes with the fire in their eyes

Everybody knows you can lead a horse to water

But there’s nothing anybody can do

When the rivers run dry

Oh, I remember when the rivers ran high

Oh, we could make it to the other side

Make it to the other side

[Chorus:]

Everybody knows the promise of the river

Everybody goes with the fire in their eyes

Everybody knows you can lead a horse to water

But there’s nothing anybody can do

Oh, there’s nothing anybody can do

There’s nothing anybody can do

When the rivers run dry
