Speed River - Lyrics

Pin It Now!

Last played: 2009/06/05 Lewiston, NY
Debut: 2009/04/29 Kitchener, ON
Notes: The live performance lifespan of Speed River lasted just over a month during which time it was played 11 times in total. Curious since Wikipedia notes it as being a 'released single' from the album 'We Are The Same'. If there was ever going to be a bust-out of this song, I suspect it would have happened at the 2013/02/08 Guelph, ON show since that's the first time The Hip have played Guelph (where Speed River is) since the album's release. If they weren't going to bust it out for the Guelphites (I looked that up), it's probably not going to be heard from again.


You're visually
Stunning, I'm almost shivering
You'd become
Anyone, don't hate who you have to be

Speed River take me away
Speed River take me away
Speed River take me away

Hard stuff
Gimme a dose of the hard stuff
Ok. Enough!
Ok, enough of the hard stuff

Speed River take me away
Speed River take me away
Speed River take me away

Away from this, away from this

Awake enough
This feels like I've been here before
You said, Don't be tough, lets go back
I said, Let's go forward
Speed River take me away
Speed River took ya away
Speed River took her away

Away from this, away this minute

This house
Sounds just like a bomb hit it
It's an old sound
That says, if you asked me to, I'd relive it

Speed River take me away
Speed River take me away
Speed River take me away

Away from this away this minute away for one moment away from this feeling
From Feeling this away
Away from this moment away from this feeling from feeling this away
Away from this...
