my lyricsbox
When you were blind, you touch things for their shape
Have faith in wordless knowledge

Well I can tell you about the river
Or we could just get in

The body the rain made of our days before we knew

We are swimming in the river of the rains of our days before we knew
And it's hard to explain what I was doing all thinking before you

I guess I was a decent man holdin' on
Followin' the river from above
Like a bird
Have faith in wordless knowledge
And the fallen stars they flew too
And I knew they were sewing something
Something well made for me and you

We are swimming in the river of the rains of our days before we knew
And it's hard to explain what I was doing all thinking before you

The city was a fist,
I lived on its wrist
And I took myself a good long look around

And the river grew higher and wider deeper and darker as I was closing in

And it led me to you which led me to say
"Let's get"

We got in the river and it broked us
Made us think of sex between us
In a time in our lives old before we knew

We were swimming in the river of the rains of our days before we knew
And it's hard to explain what I was doing all thinking before you

And that beautiful thing you said lying in bed
About all the things I could think of at the end of the day

But of all the places my mind could go
It always comes looping back to you

We are swimming in the river of the rains of our days before we knew
So meet me in the ocean and we'll ride the waves from
the river to the ocean

We are swimming in the river of the rains of our days before we knew
And it's hard to explain what I was doing all thinking before you
Have faith in wordless knowledge
This song is from the album "Woke On A Whaleheart".
