The river by The Beautiful South


Love takes time we all agree
and time's not the easiest to cheat
The water changes one degree
When will the shiver
of this river
turn to sea
The river does no good, no harm
Tempts us like pirates to its calm
Lover's shanty, devil's psalm
Goddamn this river
and its shiver
and its charm
If you've got love's A to Z
Don't go dredging river bed
Use your fins and use your head
This river's hooked the floating dead
Our lives go bounding down the strewn
When will we realise minnow dreams
The frustration eating you and me
Our only wish
to be the fish
that meets the sea
We cannot tell a he or she
But us fish can tell a we
We know the seed we know the tree
When will my conker
conquer thee
The cheaper woman and myself
We've both got ladders in our tights
When you've been left on the top shelf
You've got those ladders in your sights
