Lyrics

Walking by the river, whole way home
Put together, summer clothes
Singing loud enough to wake the dead
Out of tune and out of breath
And my head on the wrong way round

Every careless word, I take it back
My tongue was loose, my tongue was slack
At 10 to 3 I tried to plead
My voice got lost in the insistent beat
Left incomplete
Persist with me, eventually I'll come good

We used to talk, you used to have me round
I used to sing for you
But now it's not the same, I sing quietly again
You shrink my world into a fist
You stay mad and I'll stay pissed
And I'll stay here

Every careless word, I take it back
My tongue was loose, my tongue was slack
At 10 to 3 I try to plead
My voice got lost in the insistent beat
Left incomplete
Persist with me, eventually I'll come good

You should clasp your hands and pray
You brought the pain
If you love me lightly, I'd love you the same
In time

Walking by the river, whole way home
Put together, summer clothes
Singing loud enough to wake the dead
Not enough now that you've left
My head on the wrong way round

You should clasp your hands and pray
You brought the pain
If you love me lightly, I'd love you the same
[O the sky could fall tonight on South Street
