Peace Like A River

Oh, peace like a river ran through the city
Long past the midnight curfew
We sat starry-eyed
Oh, oh, oh, we were satisfied
Oh, I remember
Misinformation followed us like a plague
Nobody knew from time to time
If the plans had changed
Oh, oh, oh, if the plans had changed

You can beat us with wires
You can beat us with chains
You can run out your rules
But you know you can't outrun the history train
I've seen a glorious day
Oh, oh, oh

Oh, four in the morning
I woke up from out of my dreams
Nowhere to go but back to sleep
But I'm reconciled
Oh, oh, oh, I'm going to be up for a while
Oh, oh, oh, I'm going to be up for a while
Oh, oh, oh, I'm going to be up for a while

Oh, peace like a river ran through the city
Long past the midnight curfew
We sat starry-eyed
Oh, oh, oh, we were satisfied
Oh, oh, oh, going to be up for a while
Oh, oh, oh, going to be up for a while
