lyrics

She sits in the river, the hills all around
Tannins of earth, a cicadory sound
Lapping at limbs, the heat baring down
Far distant voices at the edge of her town

The river it smells of the earth down below
The place where we eventually all go
A watery womb, or a watery tomb
Either way it feels like home

How could she know time would drift her slowly
To the mouth of the river, to the jaws of the sea
A fish out of water, a mermaid on land
Salt air in her nostrils, white froth on the sand
With the lines of the river running deep, deep in her hand

(Running deep, running deep, deep in her hand
Lines of the river, running deep in her hand)

How do the river and the sea truly meet?
Is it a gently mingling of salty and sweet?
Or does the river surrender to the sea’s mighty churn?
A corruption of souls, or is it simply return?

How could she know time would drift her slowly
To the mouth of the river, to the jaws of the sea
A fish out of water, a mermaid on land
Salt air in her nostrils, white froth on the sand
With the lines of the river running deep, deep in her hand

(Running deep, running deep, deep in her hand
Lines of the river, running deep in her hand)
