River Swollen


I love it when the river is swollen
I love it when the water is wide
I love it when the river is flowing
Deep and dark within the night

I love it how it soothes my conscience
I love it how it coats my pain
How the sound of the silent river
Blends with the summer rain
   Blends with the summer rain

   River swollen
   River swollen takes you
   River swollen takes you down down down...

I love it when the river is swollen
I love it when the water is wide
Love it how it makes everything seem new
How it makes the world come to life

The air around us swelters
The breath within us burns
The river is our passion
Watch is slowly twist and turn
   Twist and turn

I love it how it takes your body
How it takes your body down
I love it how it takes your body
Far from this wretched town
   Far from this wretched town
   And far away from me

   River swollen
   River swollen takes you
   River swollen takes you down down down...
