Bill Callahan - From The Rivers To The Ocean Lyrics

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
