Take me down,
to the river,
where I would not go before.
Through the trees and the rushes,
to a place we both know.
And I'm feeling much younger,
as I kneel on the ground,
Dip my toe in the water,
of the river where I watched you drown
Nadadum nananana nana na...
Oh when the river ran dry that next year,
I could not find your body.
Now I'm standing here ready at last,
to dive down and reach you again.
And I long to be with you
Now these cold nights have come,
oh I go down to the river,
but the river will stop for no-one.
Though I ask it it keeps flowing on,
When I ask it,
it tells me you're gone.
