She's a river and I feel so goddamn thirsty
She's a mountain and I feed so goddamn high
I want to make her my own, I want to make her my bride
Yeah, she's a river and I feel so goddamn dry

She's a goddess and I feel so goddamn holy
She's a language I've been speaking all my days
And if my tongue should ever go broke, I'd agree with every word she spoke
Yeah, she's a chapel and I feel so goddamn saved

She's a letter and I feel so goddamn scholarly
She's a bottle and I feel so goddamn drunk
I searched the whole world through, and there's not much I care to do
Yeah, she's an ending and I feel so goddamn done

    General CommentI absolutely love this song. Especially the religious/blasphemous contrast in the imagery.
