River Of Sorrow

This song is by Antony and the Johnsons and appears on the album Antony and the Johnsons (1998).


There is a black river
It passes by my window
And late at night
All dolled up like Christ
I walk the water
Between the piers

Singing
Oh, river of sorrow
River of time, river
River of sorrow
Don't swallow this time

For we all know the baby has expired
Long ago she was pulled from the mire
And no precious liar or well-wisher
Can return the love that was stolen

So oh, river of sorrow
River of time, river
River of sorrow
Don't swallow this time

Can you see the light
At the end of the dark passageway?
Take me with you towards the light
Into the darkness passing over the faces in the river
Hear me, I'm whispering in your ear

Oh, river of sorrow
Oh, river of time
River of sorrow
Don't swallow this time

Oh, river of sorrow
Oh, river of time
River of sorrow
Don't swallow this time
