Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
Everybody tells me it’s ’bout time that I moved on
And I need to learn to lighten up and learn how to be young
But my heart is a valley, it’s so shallow and man made
I’m scared to death if I let you in that you’ll see I’m just a fake
Sometimes I feel lonely in the arms of your touch
But I know that’s just me cause nothing ever is enough
When I was a child I grew up by the River Lea
There was something in the water, now that something’s in me
Oh I can’t go back, but the reeds are growing out of my fingertips
I can’t go back to the river [Pre-Chorus]
But it’s in my roots, it’s in my veins
It’s in my blood and I stain every heart that I use to heal the pain
But it’s in my roots, it’s in my veins
It’s in my blood and I stain every heart that I use to heal the pain  [Chorus]
So I blame it on the River Lea, the River Lea, the River Lea
Yeah I blame it on the River Lea, the River Lea, the River Lea  [Verse 2]
I should probably tell you now before it’s way too late
That I never meant to hurt you or lie straight to your face
Consider this my apology, I know it’s years in advance
But I’d rather say it now in case I never get the chance
No I can’t go back, but the reeds are growing out of my fingertips
I can’t go back to the river [Pre-Chorus]
But it’s in my roots, it’s in my veins
It’s in my blood and I stain every heart that I use to heal the pain
It’s in my roots, it’s in my veins
It’s in my blood and I stain every heart that I use to heal the pain [Chorus]
So I blame it on the River Lea, the River Lea, the River Lea
Yeah I blame it on the River Lea, the River Lea, the River Lea
So I blame it on the River Lea, the River Lea, the River Lea
Yeah I blame it on the River Lea, the River Lea, the River Lea  [Outro]
River Lea, River Lea
River Lea, River Lea
River Lea, River Lea
River Lea, River Lea
The River Lea-Lea-Lea-Lea
The River Lea-Lea-Lea-Lea
The River Lea-Lea-Lea-Lea
The River Lea-Lea-Lea-Lea
