Down By The River

N.B. Please do not read the lyrics whilst listening to the recordings

Take me down to the river
Where I would not go before
Through the trees and the rushes
To a place we both know

And I'm feeling much younger
As I kneel on the ground
Dip my toe in the water
Of the river where I watched you drown

Oh when the river ran dry that next year
I could not find your body
Now I'm standing here ready at last
To dive down and reach you again

And I long to be with you
Now these cold nights have come
Oh I go down to the river
But the river will stop for no-one
Though I ask it it keeps flowing on
When I ask it, it tells me you're gone

Lyrics by Jarvis Cocker, music by Pulp
From the album Seperations
