Riverside
by Agnes Obel



Down by the river, by the boat, where everybody goes to be alone
Where you won't see any rising sun, down to the river we will run
When by the water, we drink to the dregs, look at the stones on the river bed
I can tell from your eyes, you've never been by the riverside
Down by the water, the riverbed, somebody calls you somebody says
swim with the current and float away, down by the river everyday

Chorus:
Oh my god I see how everything is torn in the river deep
And I don't know why I go the way
Down by the riverside

When that old river runs past your eyes, to wash off the dirt on the riverside
Go to the water so very near, the river will be your eyes and ears
I walk to the borders on my own, fall in the water just like a stone
Chilled to the marrow in them bones. Why do I go here all alone?

Chorus:
Oh my god I see how everything is torn in the river deep
And I don't know why I go the way
Down by the riverside


Chorus:
Oh my god I see how everything is torn in the river deep
And I don't know why I go the way
Down by the riverside

Oh, Oh, I, Oh Oh, I, Oh, Oh, I
Down by the riverside
Down by the riverside
