Taking It's Toll

lyrics

the days have been taking their toll
since we last spoke
don't think that i didn't realise
you never called
you never call

spend my weeks listening to lies
entertaining them to get by
i can't preach to the other side
the river is wide
we live in denial

taking and taking its toll

swim against the river
swim against the tide
for a while

the days have been taking their toll
wondering where you have gone
the rapids move fast and the currents strong
treading water so long
you're gone

swim against the river
swim against the tide
for a while

taking and taking its toll

swim against the river
swim against the tide
now i've drifted so far from where you are
i'm tired, gonna let the river take me
for a while
