Fell in love with a boy
Grew tired of it
Fell in love with the world
Yearned to fly from it
Fell in love with myself
Broke it off for the breeze
Broke it off for the weather

Walking slowly through space
Pleased and terrified
Backing out of the race
Extra edified
I want my sentences back
Can't remember their faces

And I'm still here
Holding on to nothing, man
Stand on my life
I'm writing my delivery
Walk the river
Like a hunted animal

Everything was the life
The summer holidays
Christmastime in the drive
Always out of range
Sit down and fall on a star
Did someone mention the weather
Did someone mention the weather

And I'm still here
Holding on to nothing, man
Stand on my life
Here is my delivery
Walk the river
Like a hunted animal

It's an endless conversation
With an endless voice, over endless fascination
Over endless choice, and my heart's going out of missions on imagined motorways
I never said I was right, I just hoped you thought it anyway

Walk the river
Like a hunted animal
Walk the river
Like a hunted animal
Walk the river
Like a hunted animal
Walk the river
You hunted animal
Walk the river
We are lost old animals

    General CommentDoes anyone know why he says "fell in love with a boy"? That's the only part I can't understand of this song yet...

    From what I can get, I think it's about trying to run away from a relationship, and the things you think about, and all that passes through your mind (christmas holidays, summmer vacation)... not sure if I'm right, though.

    General CommentAnd the river runs red.

    Always when I think about life as an river I get the flux :)
    That is my favorite word of the English language.
    Hower, when on the flight without he option to fight
    mostly I can't remember a thing but does it matter in the end?
    So, run my animal run if you come to a hold you may start remembering
    and become ...
