"My Love Took Me Down to the River to Silence Me" as written by and My Love Took Me Down To The River To Silence Me....
There, there is a heart in here
Where, where is the heart in here
Down to the river to silence me
Love took me down to the river to silence me
Love took me down to the river to silence me
Love took me down to the river to silence me
Love took me down to the river to silence me
Love took me down to the river to silence me

My love took me down to the river to silence me
And when he left, I could not speak
I lay on the ground, I tried to scream
But no sound did come out, I could only bleed blue
I waited for him til the frost did come
My skin, it turned blue and my body was numb
But my heart, it burned out til there was no more
Still I wait on the ground, I don't know what for
There, there is a heart in me
Where, where is the heart in me

This love's killing me but I want it to
So long you're gone just like I always knew
But I'm still here waiting for you
Here, waiting for you

My love took me down to the river to silence me
And when he left, I could not speak
What he said to me, I can never say
Because it's breaking my heart til this very day
There, there is a heart in me
Where, where is the heart in me

This love's killing me but I want it to
So long you're gone just like I always knew
But I'm still here waiting for you
Here, waiting for you

Down to the river to silence me
Love took me down to the river to silence me
Love took me down to the river to silence me
Love took me down to the river to silence me
Love took me down to the river to silence me
Love took me down to the river to silence me
Love took me down to the river to silence me
Love took me down to the river to silence me
Love took me down to the river to silence me
Love took me down to the river to silence me
Love took me down to the river to silence me
Love took me down to the river to silence me

There, there is a heart in me
Where, where is the heart in me

This love's killing me but I want it to
So long you're gone just like I always knew
But I'm still here waiting for you
Here, waiting for you
Here, waiting for you
Here, waiting for you

    General Comment^^ It isn't. It's a straight forward simple breakup song. Quite descriptive and well use of adjectives to convey the emotional dichotomy of her love. Very beautifully written in the true romantic sense.
    Definitely no negative connotations with lyrics.

    My InterpretationI think it's a song about date rape. It sounds like she may have dissociated the abuse from this person she loved.
