"Mighty Rivers" is a song by Kylie Minogue, recorded during the sessions for her eleventh studio album Aphrodite (2010). Written and produced by Xenomania, "Mighty Rivers" came to fruition during the early stages of Aphrodite, when the direction was aimed more towards "organic pop", and although it didn't make it onto the final album track listing, "Mighty Rivers" was released as a bonus track on the iTunes Deluxe Edition of Aphrodite.

Live performances

"Mighty Rivers" was included in the set list for the Anti Tour, a tour which focused on B-sides, rarities and demos. This tour was launched during the celebrations for K25.

Lyrics

I was so close to the edge, I was falling down
You come and turn it around
And let me see again
Let me see you again
Caught in the eye of the storm, I was sure I'd drown
But you made me reach deep down
Assured of the strength I'd found
The strength I'd found, yeah

Mighty rivers run right through me
I find them if I dive in too deep
In the shadows swim with daydreams
As far away as they can take me, oh

There was a time I would go with the rolling tide
I wanted an easy ride
I thought it was all a game
The thunder struck and it changed
Then I was scared, I was scared, I was terrified
But you made me reach inside
As certain that I'd survive, I'd survive

But all night I'm lying awake
It feels like my body's afraid to say
Too much to put into words
A dam about to burst

Mighty rivers run right through me
I find them if I dive in too deep
In the shadows swim with daydreams
As far away as they can take me, oh

Only you understand me
For the truth not the fantasy
I'm as true as I can be
Hear me now

Mighty rivers run right through me
I find them if I dive in too deep
In the shadows swim with daydreams
As far away as they can take me, oh
As far away as they can take me, oh
Mighty rivers run right through me
I find them if I dive in too deep
In the shadows swim with daydreams
As far away as they can take me, oh
