The river ran among for a little bit
We were mapping out the corners of our skin
Baby in the basket came up from the coast
Looking at each other like we’d seen a ghost

And your room was like apartheid

Following the river like a trail of jewels
Bound so close we were like little molecules
Cause the water is a constant point of everything
Wedged itself between us and we just gave in

Ah ah in the night
There’s no wrong or right
Oh oh in the night
There’s no wrong or right but

I guess its true
I guess its true what they say
You learn best the hard way

We were thrown a curveball when the river forked
Tried to fight the current but it gathered force
Since we indeed are governed by gravity
All I could do is watch you float away from me

And cry all through the night
There’s no wrong or right but
But I'll cry all through the night
There’s no wrong or right but

I guess its true
I guess its true what they say
You learn best the hard way

The winter came fast and froze the river’s heart
The lakes we only heard was where the river started
The one thing that we know for sure
Everything that will be will have been before

And I’ll blame you instead
Of leaving my head cause
I didn’t know where I was
So I couldn’t stay for long
