Originally published on the b-side of the camouflage single in the united kingdom.

Your love is colder than a foggy river
Flowin' o'er a heart of stone
You left me stranded on this foggy river
Driftin' helpless and alone
I can't escape this broken heart of mine
There's no freedom anymore
Heaven help me on this foggy river
Help me find a distant shore

There's no tomorrow on this foggy river
Only memories linger on
A mist of sorrow chills this foggy river
Everything I love is gone
Oh, I always knew that someday you'd let me down
I've got troubles, troubles, on my mind
I guess I knew to sail this foggy river
'til I leave your love behind


Spoken:
Yes, this love is colder than a foggy river
It's flowin' over a heart of stone
You left me here stranded on this foggy river
I'm just driftin' helpless and alone


Well, I always knew that someday you'd let me down
I've got, I've got troubles on my mind
I guess i, I guess I knew to sail this foggy river
'til I leave your love behind
Until I leave it all behind
Until I leave it behind
Until I leave it beЁcЁcall behind, yeah,
I'm gonna mow you down
I'm gonna call your name, yes I do
I'm gonna call your name when I do
I'm gonna mow you down
Yes, I'm gonna mow you down
I'm gonna call your name
I'm gonna call your name
Yes I do
When I do
Yeah.
