Pearl and the Beard - River

Leave me to the river
Lay me down, let the water wash over
If this is nowhere, then let us be nowhere
If I'm underwater
Then let this be love

Lick the salt from my fingers
Covet me like a neighbor
Here, you're my witness, still we are strangers
Are we just strangers?
I call it love

Thin my blood in the water
Take my bones, find the finger
Then, near the end, you'll finally name it
Then you will feel it
There you'll find love

Follow me to the river
Let me drown, let the water take over
Watch how the weight of your garment, it holds me
How it surrounds me
For you this is love
