lyrics

Down to the River

Down to the river of his arms she went
Carrying the weight away

There’s a feeling in my heart
And it feels nice and cold
Reminds me of a joke
That a little boy has told
And we all know it well
We’ve all been there before
An’ you can bring it to my house
But you can leave it at the door

Down to the river of his arms she went
Carrying the weight away

There’s somethin’ in my heart
And it feels nice and warm
It is heavy like a book, but it reads like a poem
You can sing it like a seed
Sew it in your mind
Plant it in your morning
And grow it in your mind

Down to the river of his arms she went
Carrying the weight away
Carrying the weight away

The result is a record that is ragged and beautiful. ... more
