River of No Return

Another Reid collaboration


By K Reid, J Tiven, S Tiven: from the Jeff Healey Band's 1988 album, See the Light, Arista 259441. Can someone out there help us with the rest of the words?


Well you know youíre gonna have to steal it
If you want your cake and eat it too
There is noone left to leave and [ ? ]
And the guy whoís been deceiving you

You got to pay the piper
In the end you will be so much wiser
Got to use your best endeavours
When youíre kissing to be clever

Itís a hard hard lesson
To choke on love
On the river of no return
You been burning all your bridges
Like a child with forty wishes
On the river of no return

Well you got your finger on the trigger
It would help if you was bigger

Now itís not easy
Ah no, itís not easy

Youíve done your share of cheating
Now youíre gonna have to take a beating
Youíve been acting like  [  ... ]
Now youíre going to have to suffer

Itís a hard hard lesson
To choke on love
On the river of no return
You been burning all your bridges
Like a child with forty wishes
On the river of no return

Itís a one-way road [ ? ]
As on and on you go
On the river of no return
Swept out on the tide
With no-one on your side
On the river of no return
