Well the water’s rising up,
Current knocks you to your knees.
And everybody that we know
Set their anchors to the flow.

Now your sister’s got a kid,
And she says we should get one, too.
And put our bodies to the work
Of making something of the hurt.

Meet me on the corner quarter to midnight.
Pack a little suitcase, lace up your shoes.
Meet me on the corner quarter to midnight.
I don't want to live for nobody but you.

Well I waited there for hours,
'Til the sun it blushed the sky.
A bottle fell off of a truck,
And something deep I shut it up.

Meet me on the corner quarter to midnight.
Pack a little suitcase, lace up your shoes.
Meet me on the corner quarter to midnight.
I don't want to live for nobody but you.

We were born for walking on the river,
Not for life under water.
Lay your hand in mine
