Slow Rivers Lyrics – Elton John

The weather man – he looks confused
Shakes his fist at the sky like you used to do
But you don’t remember things like that, do you?
The balance was uneven, but I’m breaking through
Slow rivers run cold
Shallow waters never sank so low
I thought I’d drown and you’d never know
You’re a slow river and you run so cold
The winter here don’t believe in God
The bitter wind just bites through me like a wild dog
I still see your eyes tonight like headlights through the fog
But one foot in your door, oh, that’s all I ever got
Chances are you’ll reappear
Swim my way in a flood of tears
No place to hide your conscience so
You’re a sinking ship with no place to go
