Riverside

Album: Philharmonics (2010)
  • Down by the river by the boats
    Where everybody goes to be alone
    Where you won't see any rising sun
    Down to the river we will run

    When by the water we drinks to the dregs
    Look at the stones on the riverbed
    I can tell from your eyes
    You've never been by the riverside

    Down by the water the riverbed
    Somebody calls you somebody says
    Swim with the current and float away
    Down by the river every day

    Oh my god I see how everything is torn in the river deep
    And I don't know why I go the way
    Down by the riverside

    When that old river runs past your eyes
    To wash off the dirt on the riverside
    Go to the water so every near
    The river will be your eyes and ears

    I walk to the borders on my own
    Fall in the water just like a stone
    Chilled to the marrow in them bones
    Why do I go here alone

    Oh my god I see how everything is torn in the river deep
    And I don't know why I go the way
    Down by the riverside

    Oh my god I see how everything is torn in the river deep
    And I don't know why I go the way
    Down by the riverside

    Oh oh
    Ah ah ah
    Oh oh
    Ah ah ah

    Oh oh
    Ah ah ah

    Down by the riverside
