Oh, river wild, that I love
I can feel you rising up
Bleed into me, bleed into me

I can feel your tide on me
You got the kind of love I need
Bleed into me, bleed into me (x2)

I can feel you rising me
I can feel moving me
Bleed into me, bleed into me (x2)

Go deeper, deeper, deeper (x4)

Bleed into me, bleed into me, bleed into… me

    My InterpretationThis song is about falling in love with a river, and I think musically it perfectly captures the feel of being swept away under the river.

    The tense build up that occurs as Anna intones 'go deeper, deeper' really creates the insatiable passion of the narrator for the river. It;s tense and sensual, until the tension is released as the vocals begin to chant.

    Then at the end the song mellows out; the narrator has perhaps left the river and looking back at it, longing to be swept away once again. Once again, the music of this Anna Calvi song is the key to really understanding its meaning.
