When you need a happy place to be
Where the children are well and the songs are safe to sing
Remember all the jams we use to play
Down on Stoner Ave. back in the day

There is a perfect dream, or so it was
The saddest boy who played with the toughest fuzz
He traveled far on a quest for true love
You'd fly so high
Don't have the ???
Rivers, sing your song

When you need a happy place to go
'Cause the TV screens have reached a new low
Remember all the songs we used to sing
When Jen was queen and Patrick was her king

There is a perfect dream, or so it seems
Still reflecting from an old music scene
Matt was kind, we had a good time
And we'd sing our pretty songs
All about the sunshine
Rivers, sing your song

You'll always be the one who hurts the best
Playing with your kids in an ocean out west
You'll always be the one inside my heart
Put down the flowchart
And pick up your guitar
Rivers, sing your song
Pick up your guitar

I'm flying home to be near the ones I love
People who love music so much more than enough
Rivers, Matthew, Patrick, Patrick, Mykel, Carli, Karl
Brian, Mikey, Scott, Darrin, playing all the while

Always be the love in the songs you sing
Always give it all for the kids who're listening
'Cause you got a golden gift inside your mind
Follow your heart
And the treasure we'll find

Rivers, sing your song
Please, take me along
Rivers, sing your song
