green river flows
like grass melting
later it will run black down it's track
into an ocean
she stands onthe bridge
dim light on her back
well someday
i will carry you
i will carry you
i will carry you
i will carry you

i wanna float high
above waves of electric wires
and stare down onto the street
i see a drunk with glazed eyes
tellin me about the girl i should meet
someday
i will carry you
(repeat 6x)

    General Commenti love this song as well. It is confusing but what i can see is how the green river flows like grass melting.. here its like when grass is being burned it turns black like the green river which turns black running into the ocean. A dim light against her back on a bridge gives a possible dreary image. maybe the writer of this wants to take the girl the drunk man said he would meet away from this dreary place and float high above all someday when he find her or makes her his own..????
