Jump in the River
by Sinéad O'Connor



The phone calls
Always left me unsure
They'd never say things of their own accord
I am preoccupied
I can't get them out of my mind
They are terrified

And if you said jump in the river I would
Because it would probably be a good idea
You're not supposed to be here at all
It's all been a gorgeous mistake
Sick one or clean one
The best one
That God ever made

When I kissed you
You didn't mind
I thought I tasted of too many cigarettes
But you tasted like wine
And I'm not going to change my mind
Just because of what they said
The worm has laid eggs in their hearts
But not in my head

And if you said jump in the river I would
Because it would probably be a good idea
You're not supposed to be here at all
It's all been a gorgeous mistake
Sick one or clean one
The best one
That God ever made

There's been days like this before you know
And I liked it all
Like the times we did it so hard
There was blood on the wall

And if you said jump in the river I would
Because it would probably be a good idea
