The River Bed

The River Bed Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I come down to the river
And I watch as the sun goes down
And I feel the earth shiver
As the darkness comes circlin' 'round
And I swore I would not come here
And I know I should not stay
Any thoughts heaven-born I have
I choose to cast them away

[Verse 2]
She appears by the water
In the light of a quarter-moon
She is dressed in lace and velvet
In shades of grays and maroons
She knows without me speaking
Until I have her I cannot rest
And she smiles as she comes to me
And I lean down and I get some rest

[Verse 3]
She rips the cross from around my neck
She says "Take me down to the river bed
"For once you have had me
"You'll not be satisfied with the undead"
We walk into the river
I cannot see the shore
And I am baptized in dark water
And I'm hers forevermore

Beneath my feet, there's a rumble
In the heavens there's storms
And I feel myself sinking
Into something dark and warm
