Lyrics

Drag the river and within her you may find a sliver
Of the one of whom you speak and whom they seek
She would gaze into the river as we’d look into a mirror
And her reflection would beckon her to
"Join me, join me, join me, join me.
Happy we will be"

On the coastal shore I’m sure you’d break down if you saw
An abhorrent torrent crashing as it pours
The countercurrent holds a secret at the rise of tide
And it swells all alone for this heart born too high
"So join me, join me, join me, join me."
I’m certain I heard her cry

By the river the soul of submersible stone
Every second of my life prepares to go
She would call into the river as she’d cry out for her mother
So stark, so haunt, deep enough for all I want
"Oh join us, join us, join us, join us
And happy we will be"
