"River Song One" as written by Gavin Bradley Gardiner, Andrew Kekewich, Simon Walker and Andrew Wyatt....
I watched the water roll in off the river
And said "My dear we're in for it now"
You said "Lay your head down
Next to mine on the ground
And if the lord doesn't save us we'll drown"

So we both lay there shaking
Our hands in the river
Saying "I'm sure we were born
Just to die"
But when the water rushed in
I gave in to my sins
And found my own way to higher ground

Where I watched as the water
Took hold of your body
From high on my hill of retreat
You smiled up at me
Amongst the bodies and trees
I didn't sleep for a week after that

Finally the river let go of your body
And my mind drifted off into sleep
But your eyes came to me
Disguised as the sea
Saying "I can't forgive you for this"
Please darling, please
You're much stronger than me
And I've tried all my days to believe
You said "Don't come around
The next time you get down
Looking to me for release"
