Love takes time we all agree
The water changes one degree
of this river

Tempts us like pirates to its calm
Goddamn this river
and its charm
If you've got love's A to Z
Use your fins and use your head

When will we realize minnow dreams
Our only wish
that meets the sea
We cannot tell a he or she
We know the seed we know the tree
conquer thee
The cheaper woman and myself
When you've been left on the top shelf
Love takes time we all agree
The water changes one degree
of this river

Tempts us like pirates to its calm
Goddamn this river
and its charm
If you've got love's A to Z
Use your fins and use your head

When will we realize minnow dreams
Our only wish
that meets the sea
We cannot tell a he or she
We know the seed we know the tree
conquer thee
The cheaper woman and myself
When you've been left on the top shelf
