i was walking with my brother
he took one hand then the other
led me down beside the river
we ran home in time for dinner

wait for me, my darling
wait for me

had a baby named it lover
met a boy looked like my mother
smeared our colors dirty fingers
ancient lace for itching triggers

wait for me, my darling
wait for me

what i'll find
said, the water's fine
well it may kill time
but i am not mine

bathe me in the silent water
bring my body to my father
close my eyelids count the clover
paint my skin yellow ocher

wait for me, my darling
wait for me

what i'll find
said the water's fine
well, it may kill time
but i am not mine

i went walking with my sisters
we fell down beside the river
count your blessings said our mother
first wash one hand, then the other
