Capo 4
 
Intro chorus:
I've been a [Em] liar, been a thief, [G] been a [C] lover, been a cheat
All [D] my sins [Em] need holy water, [G] feel it [C] washin' over me
Well [D] little one, [Em] I don't want to admit to [G] something [C]
If all it's gonna cause is [D] pain, [Em] truth in my lies [G] right now are [C] falling like the rain
So let the [D] river run
 
Verse 1:
[Em] He's comin' home with his neck scratched to [G] catch flack
[C] Sweat jackets and dress slacks, [D] mismatched
[Em] On his breath's Jack, he's a sex addict and [G] she just wants to
[C] Exact revenge and [A5] get back [D]
It's a [Em] chess match, she's on his back like a [G] jet-pack
She's [C] kept track of all his Internet chats and [D] guess who just
[Em] Happens to be movin' on to the next [G] actually
Just [C] shit on my last chick and she [A5] has what my [D] ex lacks
[Em] 'Cause she loves danger, [G] psychopath
[C] And you don't fuck with no man's girl, even [D] I know that
[Em] But she's devised some plan to stab him [G] in the back
[C] Knife in hand, says the [A5] relationship's hangin' [D] by a strand
[Em] So she's been on the web lately [G]
Says [C] maybe she'll be my Gwen Stacy, to [D] spite her man
[Em] And I know she's using me to [G] try to play him
[C] I don't care, "hi Suzanne", but I shoulda said "bye Suzanne"
After the first night, but tonight I am
 
Chorus:
I've been a [Em] liar, been a thief, [G] been a [C] lover, been a cheat
All [D] my sins [Em] need holy water, [G] feel it [C] washin' over me
Well [D] little one, [Em] I don't want to admit to [G] something [C]
If all it's gonna cause is [D] pain, [Em] truth in my lies [G] right now are [C] falling like the rain
[A5] So let the river run
 
Verse 2:
[Em] One-night stand turned to a two-night stand, [G] it was
"Come [C] sunlight, scram," now we hug tight and [D]
He found [Em] out, now she feels deserted and used [G]
'Cause he [C] left, so what, he did it [A5] first to her too [D]
Now [Em] how am I supposed to tell this girl that we're through? [G]
It's [C] hard to find the words, I'm aloof, nervous and [D] Sue
Don't want this [Em] to hurt but what you deserve is the truth
Don't [G] take it [C] personal, I just can't say this in [A5] person to you [D]
[Em] So I revert to the studio like hole -[G] in - the - wall [C] diners
Don't have to be reserved in a [D] booth
I [Em] just feel like the person who I'm turnin' into's [G]
[C] Irreversible, I preyed on you like it's [A5] church at the pew [D]
And now that I [Em] got you I don't want you
Took advantage [G] in my thirst to [C] pursue
Why do I do this dirt that I do? [D]
Get on my [Em] soapbox and preach, my sermon and speech [G]
Detergent [C] and bleach is burnin' the wound
'Cause now with her in the womb
We can't bring her in this world, shoulda knew
To use protection 'fore I bit into your forbidden fruit
 
Chorus:
I've been (fuck!) a [Em] liar, been a thief, [G] been a [C] lover, been a cheat
All [D] my sins [Em] need holy water, [G] feel it [C] washin' over me
Well [D] little one, [Em] I don't want to admit to [G] something [C]
If all it's gonna cause is [D] pain, [Em] truth in my lies [G] right now are [C] falling like the rain
[A5] So let the river run
 
Bridge:
[Em] My name's (oh-oh), [G] my name's (oh-oh) [C] Denver (oh-oh), river run
Just [Em] call me (oh-oh), [G] call me (oh-oh) [C] River (oh-oh)
We'll let the river run
 
Verse 3:
[C] Always the bridesmaid, never "the bride, hey"
[D5] Fuck can I say, if life was a highway
[C] And deceit was an enclave, I'd be swerving in five lanes
[Em] Speeds at a high rate [D5] like I'm slidin' on ice maybe
[C] That's why I'm may have came at you sideways
[D5] I can't keep my lies straight
But I [Em] made you terminate my baby
This love [Em] triangle left us in a wreck, tangled
What else can I [C] say, it was fun for a while, bet I really woulda loved your smile
Didn't really wanna abort but fuck it, what's one more lie to tell our unborn child?
 
Chorus:
I've been (fuck!) a [Em] liar, been a thief, [G] been a [C] lover, been a cheat
All [D] my sins [Em] need holy water, [G] feel it [C] washin' over me
Well [D] little one, [Em] I don't want to admit to [G] something [C]
If all it's gonna cause is [D] pain, [Em] truth in my lies [G] right now are [C] falling like the rain
So let the [D] river run (river run, river run, river run)
