Oh how, at the journey's end, I lie in the heat of the night,
Feeling the heartache, wondering why,
I want a friend, I want a friend to lay down beside me,
I want a friend, I want her now, someone who knows what I mean
When I say, that I need

The Rivers Of Abraham to hold me, I need The Rivers Of Abraham tonight,
Will you lay them on my shoulders,
Will you lay them on my eyes,
And I need The Rivers Of Abraham to take me,
All the way to paradise, and then, when it's over,
I need The Rivers Of Abraham to hold me through the night;

Touch me with your velvet mouth, I will give all the love that I have,
Under the moonlight, reaching your heart,
Where are you now, where are you now, come out of the shadows,
Where are you now, I want you now,
You know that I cannot always be strong, and I need

The Rivers Of Abraham to hold me, I need The Rivers Of Abraham tonight,
Will you lay them on my shoulders,
Will you lay them on my eyes, and I need
The Rivers Of Abraham to take me all the way to paradise,
And then, when it's over, I need The Rivers Of Abraham
To hold me through the night;

I am only a voice in a city of noise, can you hear me this time,
I see the storm grow, there's a light in the desert tonight;

And I need The Rivers Of Abraham, give me The Rivers Of Abraham,
Will you lay them on my shoulders, oh give me,
The Rivers Of Abraham to take me all the way to paradise,
And then, when it's over, I have The Rivers Of Abraham
To hold you through the night, darling,
My The Rivers Of Abraham will hold you through the night;

I want your The Rivers Of Abraham, you have The Rivers Of Abraham,
I want those The Rivers Of Abraham, The Rivers Of Abraham...
