Biography

"Just when you think the vibes of dancehall and hip hop are at its top and headbangin' is the only way to loose your mind on ROCK music...meet a band named RIVE!"

Charismatic he is! Front man and lead singer Rivelino Rigters knows how to entertain and get to a crowd. With his raw kind of soulful voice he energizes the entire stage.

It has taken more then 10 years of an individual journey through the land of music and entertainment, after Rivelino "Blackrockstar" decided it was about time to exchange a land full of `here and there' musicians for a wicked flashy band! In December 2007 the formation of RIVE (pronounce as reef) was a fact.

Lyrics

Why

Written By: Rivelino Rigters

Verse 1
I knew this boy
His name was Roy
And he was three

I never met his dad
Because he left
When Roy turned three

It was the first day of school
His mother felt like a fool
She felt betrayed and she’d been had

She fell down on her knees
Begging Roy’s father please
But he acts so cool

Pre-Chorus
Why must things be the way they are?
Salvation seems so very far
Got people staring back at me
What must I do?

Chorus
Can you see me?
Do you feel me?
Do you know my name?

Understand me
You must help me
Can you hear my prayer?

Verse 2
Now he’s sixteen
He’s selling crack and heroine
But his eyes could never see
He was getting caught up
In a web of sins

And then his mom’s about to die
Oh how Roy and I cried
Only God knows what hell he went trough

I prayed for hours begging please
Won’t You take this disease
Or let her rest in peace

Pre-Chorus

Chorus (2x)

O, o, o, oh---- 4x

This is a story
About a family affair
About a girl named Rachel
And a little baby

Her mama tried to warn her
For the boys she used to meet
You’ll get yourself in trouble girl
Out there on the streets

O, o, o, oh---- 4x

Verse 2
She wanna have a baby
Even though she’s seventeen
She’s gonna get herself a man
Just you wait and see

And no one’s gonna tell her
What to do
Cause she’s a full grown woman
And ya’ll don’t have a clue

Chorus
Pull yourself, ya gotta pull yourself 2gether
Pull yourself, ya gotta pull yourself 2gether

Middle 8

Breakdown
Now Rachel has a baby
And she’s looking so keen
But her no good boyfriend
He treats her oh so mean

Now listen up Rachel
I will tell you what to do
Ya gotta pull yourself 2gether
And leave that no good fool

Chorus 2x

O, o, o, oh---- 4x

Tryin' to reach some souls
For the truth of my ideas

Or right to get loose

Now either way for of y'all

A muslim or jew, all hope is in love
And all Hope depends on You

And you will soar so high---to the sky, yeah..

New Day

Written By: Rivelino Rigters, Remi Lauw

New Day
Lyrics R.Rigters, music R.Lauw

Verse 1
Every day is a new day
For me to see
All of the goodness
That follows me

If I can imagine
You surrounding me
Than I’m bound to discover
That fame was meant to be

Chorus
I’m gonna live forever
I’m reaching for the sky
I’ll make my way to heaven
And you’ll remember why

Verse 2
Now Polly wants a cracker
It’s plain to see
Now I’m feeling much wacker
From the jerkin off constantly

Chorus

Breakdown
It’s time to wake up
And smell the coffee
Because the quarter is fallen

I said the quarter is fallen baby
That’s the way we do it
In Amstadam, diggybambamdam

Chorus

Breakdown
It’s a new day
The old has gone
The new has come

Rockin’ on the break of dawn
Rivelino rockin’ to the flawn
Ya know

Acapella

Chorus 4x

This Time

Written By: Rivelino Rigters, Llewy is Sell

This Time
by R. Rigters, Llewy is Sell

Verse
If you're sitting down and lonely
And you got no place to go
My, love I'll take you by the hand
I'll never let you face that lonesome road

Make you feel like queen and royalty
Treat you like a precious dove
There's, one thing you can know for sure
You'll always have my love forever more

Cause I see you hesitating
Insecure, you're almost fainting
Collapsing to the pressure breaking
Cause your heart's been broken before

And I will be your guiding light

Chorus
This time
We'll be in love my baby
Let me take you

This time
I will be right around
Right on time

This time
We'll be in love my baby
Let me take you

This time, this time, this time
I'll be the one who takes you
The one who takes you home at night

Verse
Babygirl, believe me
You are my everything
That's the reason
I bought you this diamond ring

Though I know
Your heart is not for sale
Baby you stole my heart
Mama this is the bail

Can't you see
It's easy as a 1,2,3
And I'll be loving you
And you'll be loving me

Together we'll sing do-re-mi
Singing songs in the keys
of Eternity
And I will be your song in life

Chorus
This time
We'll be in love my baby
Let me take you

This time
I will be right around
Right on time

This time
We'll be in love my baby
Let me take you

This time, this time, this time
I'll be the one who takes you

Bridge
And I will be the light
Who brightens your day
I'll make a way
When you think there's no way

Sufficient, supplying
All of your needs
Hindsight, fray

Chorus
This time
We'll be in love my baby
Let me take you

This time
I will be right around
Right on time

This time
We'll be in love my baby
Let me take you

This time, this time, this time
I'll be the one who takes you
