Birch Tree

Album: What Went Down (2015)
  • The city I was born in I left a long time ago
    And we lost touch, grew apart, my friend
    My heart's an old pole dancer, troubled romancer, you know
    It's a subway chancer, a question with no answer

    Come meet me by the river, see how time it flows
    I'll meet you by the river, see how time it flows

    And when we age shed our skin and grow
    We shed our layers, spread our wings and go
    My heart's an old black panther, corrupted financer, you know
    It's a troubled romancer, a question with no answer

    Come meet me by the river, see how time it flows
    I'll meet you by the river, see how time it flows
    Come meet me by the river, see how time it flows
    I'll meet you by the river, see how time it flows

    Oh
    Oh
    Oh
    Oh
    Oh, now the river runs away but I chase it (yeah)
    Time holds no fear when I turn round to face it (yeah)
    Oh, now the river runs away but I chase it (yeah)
    Time holds no fear when I turn round to face it (yeah)
    Come meet me by the river, see how time it flows
    I'll meet you by the river, see how time it flows
    Oh now the river runs away but I chase it
    Time holds no fear when I turn round to face it
    Oh now the river runs away but I chase it
    Time holds no fear when I turn round to face it Writer/s: JACK BEVAN, WALTER GERVERS, YANNIS PHILIPPAKIS, JAMES SMITH
