Down by the ricer by the boats
Where everybody goes to be alone
Where you won´t see and rising sun
Down to the river we will run

When by the water we drinks to the dregs

Look at the stones on the riverbed
I can tell from your eyes
You’ve never been by the riverside

Down by the water the riverbed

Somebody calls you somebody says
Swim with the current and float away
Down by the river every day 


I walk to the borders on my own

To 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

When that old river runs pass 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

Lyrics Agnes Obel
