"River" as written by and Mark Edward Kozelek....
I know you're willing and able
There by the wooden table
Won't you come on over to my side?
And you know I'll treat you right

There at the water
There is the water you drink
Won't you come on over to my side?
And you can drink from my

Down through the dirt you lead us
Across the sand you'll disappear
Will you come back? I feel you won't need us
I feel you won't miss us will you come back?

Back in the summer I fell into your space
With an understanding when I just looked in your face
There at the water, you wash your skin
Sleep on the violets until you're covered in dust again

I know you're hungry and tired
All alone by the fire
Won't you come, come on over to my side?
And you know

Down through the dirt you lead us
One kiss before you leave, will you come back?
And sleep tonight beside me?
The morning comes I feel alive, will you come back?

And two yellow eyes remember souls of ancient lies
And she sees them dance and hears them moan and cry
And two yellow eyes reveal warmth and love inside
And she wears her mask, pulls on her gloves

And two yellow eyes remember souls of ancient lies
And she sees them dance and hears them moan and cry
And two yellow eyes reveal her warmth and love inside
And she wears her mask, pulls on her glove
