Agnes Obel - Riverside Lyrics

Down by the river by the boats
Where everybody goes to be alone
Where you won't see any rising sun
Down to the river we will run

When by the water we drink to the dregs
Look at the stones on the river bed
I can tell from your eyes
You've never been by the riverside

Down by the water the river bed
Somebody calls you somebody says
"Swim with the current and float away."
Down by the river everyday

Oh my God I see how everything is torn in the river deep
And I don't know why I go the way
Down by the riverside

When that old river runs past your eyes
To wash off the dirt on the riverside
Go to the water so very near
The river will be your eyes and ears

I walk to the borders on my own
And fall in the water just like a stone
Chilled to the marrow in them bones
Why do I go here all alone

Oh my God I see how everything is torn in the river deep
And I don't know why I go the way
Down by the riverside

Oh my God I see how everything is torn in the river deep
And I don't know why I go the way
Down by the riverside

Oh oh, I
Oh oh, I
Oh oh, I

Down by the riverside
Down by the riverside

    In the end, make no mistake, we all get what we deserve. And there's nothing anyone can do to avoid it. To trick or escape Fate. Each and every one of us. Ashes to ashes. Dust to dust. Deleted from the book of Time. Like never existed. Forever I begin.

  73. Jurica Grčević

    Hey guys, I think you should check out:

    Hooverphonic - Mad about you

    Eden House

    Tess J

    Jurica Grčević Thank you so much ( the first is

    Jurica Grčević

    @Tess J Hooverphonic sound so much like Portishead. I think you should check out Bambi Molesters. Thy play Surf Rock and they use violins and trumpets to back them up sometimes. Mostly, their songs are lively and dynamic but I think you'll get so hooked on this one because it has the same strong vibe like Hooverphonic.

    Tess J

    Jurica Grčević thanks

    @Tobias Krist Now that you know what it's about listen to it again.
    P.S. You probably didn't realize it but _Pumped up Kicks_ is a song about a school mass shooter.

  93. Si M.R

    Beira do Rio
    Descendo o rio pelos barcos
    Onde todo mundo vai para ficar sozinho
    Onde você não vai ver nenhum sol nascendo
    Até o rio que será executado
    Quando a água que tomamos for até a última gota
    Olhe para as pedras no leito do rio
    Eu posso dizer pelos seus olhos
    Você nunca esteve à beira do rio
    Descendo junto à água no leito do rio
    Alguém te chama,alguém te diz
    Nadar com a corrente e flutuar
    Descendo pelo rio todos os dias
    Oh meu Deus eu vejo como tudo está dividido no rio profundo
    E eu não sei porque eu vou pelo caminho
    Descendo pela beira do rio
    Quando esse antigo rio corrente passar por teus olhos
    Para lavar a sujeira à beira do rio
    Ir para a água tão próxima
    O rio irá ser seus olhos e ouvidos
    Eu ando até as fronteiras de mim mesma
    Para cair na água como uma pedra
    Ossos nele gelados até a medula
    Por que eu vou aqui sozinho
    Oh meu Deus eu vejo como tudo está dividido no rio profundo
    E eu não sei porque eu vou pelo caminho
    Descendo pela beira do rio

    Fica tranquilo, vai passar!
