Were you named for the river that surrounds
All my biggest mistakes,
Or the way that I made it out?

All the monsters in my mouth
Never smile to set the frown thing
Until the day she handed you to me.

Now,
For all the steps you'll take,
And all you'll overcome
I wanna be the one to put it in a song.
Took every single tear,
For all the world to hear
I wanna be the one to put it in a song

Cigarettes are rainin hard
On the upper east side
She brings me a cake
We celebrate I have arrived

And I know that it's been sang before
But your my human holiday
I put my hands to the table
And dare say
[You're] the love of my life (uhhu)

And your brother with his best friend
She has a name of un-inebriated
Couldn't bring me down

Now for everything you lost
And all you've over-come
I wanna be the one to put it in a song.
Take every single tear
For all the world to hear.
I wanna be the one to put it in a song
And make it last forever
Clever comes in truth.
When truth begets the [best/past]
It sends a call out to the moon.
And the moon can see the beauty that surrounds
Your heart as it pounds.
It starts the beat
Inspiring me until I make a song.

I wanna be the one
I wanna be the one
I wanna be the one
(One...)

For everything you've lost
And all you've overcome
I wanna be the one to put it in a song

Take every single tear
For all the world to hear
I wanna be the one
To put it in a song
