I remember that I found you
Just waiting in the dark
Took me to the river where we always fell apart
And we lay amongst the rocks naked in the sand
Waiting for the moment that we hoped would never end
And I came to you for comfort but it never stopped the pain
I remember we were smiling as our bodies tore away

So take me to the river I can almost feel it
The waters washing over me and I dont even mind
And I know that youre screaming I can barely hear it
The waters washing over me and I dont even mind
I dont even mind

Woke up in the morning as the ice began to freeze
You tried to stop the current and the changing of the leaves
But I was frozen in the spotlight burns like the sun
Waiting for a moment that I knew would never come
So I held you close for comfort but it couldnt stop the pain
Knew that we were dying as our bodies tore away

So take me to the river I can almost feel it
The waters washing over me and I dont even mind
And I know that youre screaming I can barely hear it
The waters washing over me and I dont even mind
I dont even mind

There by the shore I am raw
I can almost taste it
Hope like a drug in the blood
I can feel it coming
Walk til we fall til we crawl
I can almost taste it
There in the blood like a drug
I can hear it coming

I wash away
