Lyrics

Breath of the River

By the light of the river shining onyx in the night
Bare March branches stabbing tangling for the moon
That's shining hiding shining
Now it seems that your blood must have been tidal
Salty iron in a lunar pull
And in the blood rush perspective was confused
And you reached into the water for the moon

Hold me hold me lift me shining from the water
Hold me hold me help me breathe
The breath of the river the breath of the river
The breath of the river the breath of the river

Well I've never seen a moon like that
Shining naked through the trees
Were you deceived by the burning white reflection
Which robbed the light that might have come from me
Falling up did it feel like falling up
Falling up to meet a lover
And did you wonder spinning up and under
Where is the moon where is the light
Where is my lover on this cold and lonely night
And the river runs and the river sighs
And the river breathes good-bye good-bye good-bye
Good-bye good-bye good-bye

Hold me hold me lift me shining from the water
Hold me hold me help me breathe
Hold me hold me lift me shining from the water
Hold me hold me help me breathe
The breath of the river the breath of the river
The breath of the river the breath of the river
