Like a River Runs
Bleachers Lyrics


I woke up thinking you were still here
My hands shaking with regret
I've held this dream for such a long long time
And I wanna get up
To the rhythm of a wild, to the rhythm of a wild heart
That beats, that beats like a rolling drum

I saw you standing on the corner
I saw you standing on your own
And I get the feeling that it's, it's all a dream
And I wanna get up
To the rhythm of a wild, to the rhythm of a wild heart
That beats, that beats like a drum

When I fall asleep I can see your face
What I lost in you I will not replace
And I could run away, I could let them down
But I will remember your light

Your light it follows me in darkness
I'm trying hard but I can't win
And I've played the victim for a long long time
And I wanna grow up
From the rhythm a young, from the rhythm of a younger heart
It leads just like a river runs

That night I sent over the parkway
The summer's gone and I'm alone
And I get the feeling that you're somewhere close
And I wanna get up
To the rhythm of your wild, to the rhythm of your wild heart
It beats, been beating since you've gone

When I fall asleep I can see your face
What I lost in you I will not replace
And I could run away, I could let them down
But I will remember

When I fall asleep I can see your face
What I lost in you I will not replace
And I could run away, I could let them down
And I know you're gone but still
I will remember your light

I will remember
I will remember
I will remember
I will remember

And if you see me in the darkness
I hope you know I'm not alone
I carry you with every breath I take
I won't let up, I won't let up
Until the wind is gone

I woke up thinking you were still here
My hands shaking with regret
I've held this dream for such a long long time
And I wanna get up
To the rhythm of a wild, to the rhythm of a wild heart
That beats, that beats like a rolling drum

I saw you standing on the corner
I saw you standing on your own
And I get the feeling that it's, it's all a dream
And I wanna get up
To the rhythm of a wild, to the rhythm of a wild heart
That beats, that beats like a drum

When I fall asleep I can see your face
What I lost in you I will not replace
And I could run away, I could let them down
But I will remember your light

Your light it follows me in darkness
I'm trying hard but I can't win
And I've played the victim for a long long time
And I wanna grow up
From the rhythm a young, from the rhythm of a younger heart
It leads just like a river runs

That night I sent over the parkway
The summer's gone and I'm alone
And I get the feeling that you're somewhere close
And I wanna get up
To the rhythm of your wild, to the rhythm of your wild heart
It beats, been beating since you've gone

When I fall asleep I can see your face
What I lost in you I will not replace
And I could run away, I could let them down
But I will remember

When I fall asleep I can see your face
What I lost in you I will not replace
And I could run away, I could let them down
And I know you're gone but still I will remember your light

I will remember
I will remember
I will remember
I will remember

And if you see me in the darkness
I hope you know I'm not alone
I carry you with every breath I take
I won't let up, I won't let up
Until the wind is gone

TW: Suicide

This song hits different now, 2 years ago, I dated a guy and I really liked him even way before we dated, we had to stop because I made him settle things with someone who he dated before me that's making confused about his feelings, I let him go and he got back to that guy, I was happy for him nonetheless, I found my someone too a year after dating him and he was supportive with my new relationship.

Some time last year, he stopped posting on facebook and stopped chatting me because he often chatted me and checked up on me because he knew about my mental struggles as well. I assumed he took a social media break because he and his boyfriend might've broken up or something.

In some weird way, I just discovered now about what happened to him and I could stop crying listening to this song, because things could've been different. He could've still be alive.

The last thing he told me before closing the taxi door he got me to get me home safely was, whatever happens, he'll meet me again and we'll start again when everything is clear. That was the last time I saw him alive.

it's been three months since he took his life and I never knew it happened, I had no idea that he was capable of doing it. I just wish I could've seen him again one last time and told him everything I wanted to tell him back then.

I'm here crying over this song and I also commented this on Taylor Swift's Forever Winter because it has the same effect on me.
