Citizen Cope - Peace River Lyrics




I come from a place
Run by a man named Mr. Paige
He took everything and he wanted more
A gun and a knife and he'd use the law

He'd smack you in the head in public
He'd kick you down and he'd think nothing of it
Keep your head down, swallow your pride
If you wanna live to see the night and

I guess I had my fill
Of playing from the valley to the top of the hill
And even though I got away
I couldn't shake Mr. Paige

And I've fulfilled all my desires
I couldn't put out the fire
Things going in my head
That I need him put to rest

So I will take off, fly off
Get a little bit of step in my walk
Checked on day been giving me a call
And I'm done fallin'

So I will take off, fly off
Get a little bit of step in my walk
Swimming in the Peace River for more
Oh ho, darling

I packed my bags and went
To a place I promise I'd never been
Coming from a cowarly stance
It turned me into a cowardly man

Y'all wouldn't believe what I've seen
Mr. Paige, he was broke at the knees
Somebody so brave and strong
Just turned weak and worn

The fear, it disappeared
And the hate it followed it
To a place it occupied
Be replaced by love and lies

So I will take off, fly off
Get a little bit of step in my walk
Checked on day been giving me a call
And I'm done fallin'

So I will take off, fly off
Get a little bit of step in my walk
Swimming in the Peace River for more
Oh ho, darling
