​Rivers In Your Mouth

This song is by Ben Howard and appears on the album I Forgot Where We Were (2014).

Hold it in
The river in your mouth
Is pouring out
The water takes the
Shape of all that it surrounds
Yeah, I know
I been trying so hard
Keeping time
With all of the hours in your day

Hold it in
They wouldn't let you out among the crowd
Not like that
These streets will tear you down
How it is
Under my skin
Now you are
Pictures of all you'll ever be

Oh, I am not myself today
I am not feelin' okay

Hold it in
The river in your mouth
Is pouring out
The water takes the
Shape of all that surrounds
Yeah, I know
I been trying so hard
Keeping time
With all of the sounds that you make

Hold it in
They come at you
From both sides of your mind
Thick and thin
These walls you'll always stand behind
Sick and tired
Oh I beg for the world to change
But it don't
No, it ain't on you
And that's the thing

Oh, I am not myself today
I am not feelin' okay

And you
Showed me hope amidst the harlequins in spring
And you
Told me life was learning how to be your friend
