"The River Rise" as written by and Mark Lanegan....
Oh the river rise
And it's a mile high
Is this worth tryin'
Is this worth tryin'
Cause I could fall
Like a tear
Well there's nothing else I can do

When I'm not alone
Nothings beside me
What one eye sees
The other's blind in
Well I could fall
As if I was young
With a lifetime to think of you

Fire one for losing
And two for hiding
Keep river moving
Movin' right by me
I could fall
And there's nothin' else I can do

Ah the river rise
And it's a mile high
Has this world turned
Has this world tried
'Cause I could fall
Like a tear
well there's nothin' else I can do

Up on the river rise
She's a mile high

    General Commenthe's comparing the river to a girl that he had feelings for. she continues to drift away from him (the river rise, she's a mile high) and he cant get through to her to show his feelings to her and there is nothing else he can do but cry.
