Down By The Water

from Cry Cry Cry

Down by the water where the big dam is standing
I met my darling last night
And while the pale moon was sinking
We lay there drinking
And listening to our hearts

Down by the water with the steel turbines humming
I held my darling last night
And when the big sluice was opened the river went running
And turned on the lights

Down by the water, I thought I knew
Down by the water, quick as the dew
Down by the water

Cool was the air through the folds of her hair
As she told me to listen once more
And I heard the wind making waves on the water
That reached for the shore

So many reasons, like drops from a rain cloud
She could've been talking all night
Instead she just left me, and I watched the river drain out of sight

Down by the water, I thought I knew
Down by the water, quick as the dew
Down by the water

Down by the water where the big dam is standing
I met my darling last night
And while the pale moon was sinking
We lay there drinking
And listening to our hearts

Down by the water, we fell apart
Down by the water, right from the start
Down by the water, quick as the dew
Down by the water
