Suzanne takes you down by the river
You can hear the boats float by
You can spend the night forever beside her
And You know she's half crazy
But that's why you want to be there
She feeds you tea and oranges
All the way from China
And just when you need to
That you have no love to give her
She gets you on her wavelength
And she lets the river answer
That you've always been her lover
And you want to travel with her
You want to travel blind
And you know that she will trust you
For you've touched her perfect body with your mind.

Now Jesus was a sailor
When he walked upon the water
Spent a long time watching
From his lonely wooden tower
And when he knew for certain that
Only drowning men could see him
He said "All men will be sailors
And the sea shall set them free"
But he himself was broken
Long before the sky would open
Forsaken, almost human
He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone
And you want to travel with him
You want to travel blind
You think maybe you can trust him
Cause he's touched your perfect body with his mind.

Now Suzanne takes your hand
And leads you down to the river
She wearing rags and feathers
From Salvation Army counters
And the sun pours down like honey
On our lady of the harbor
She shows you where to look
Between the garbage and the flowers
There are heroes in the seaweed
There are children in the morning
They are leaning out for love
They will lean that way forever
While Suzanne holds the mirror
And you want to travel with her
You want to travel blind
And you know that you can trust her
Cause she's touched your perfect body with her mind
With her mind...
