julia stone – the river lyrics

the river

well, the river came to me, and it washed us all away.
someone is chasing me and noted where i used to stay.
and i feel as i’ve been here many times before.
as i kneel and i pick up the pieces on the floor.
and you ask me in a voice, that is quiet, that is strong:
“tell me of a place where the living don’t belong.”
i remember falling to the other side.
i remember leaving my body behind.

but the river pulled me away,
before i got a chance to say what i say.
and under the jacket i did lay.
and the christmas lights, they come from nowhere.

i had visions often of rivers,
no, i didn’t know their names.
i had visions, notwithstanding in the heart of it all.
and you ask me to tell you:
“oh, what people might we become?”
tell me of the dying we have done.

but the river pulled me away,
before i got a chance to say what i say.
and under the jacket i did lay.
and the christmas lights, they came from nowhere.

oh, and under the river i stay.
i won’t get the chance to say what i say.
under the jacket, i will lay.
and the christmas lights, they come from nowhere.
and the christmas lights, they come from nowhere.
and the christmas lights, they come from nowhere.
