Stone Roses – Mersey Paradise lyrics

River splashes against the rocks
And I scale the slope
I hope the tracks won't
Lead me down to dark black pits or
Places where we fall to bits
If she were there I'd hold her down
I'll push her under while she drowns
And couldn't breathe and claw for air
She doesn't care for my despair
Or is it me?
The one that's wrong?
You see it in the sea
River cools where I belong
In my mersey paradise
As I stare an oil can comes
Sailing by and I feel like
Growing fins and falling in
With the bricks the bikes the rusty tin
I swim along without a care
I'm eating sand when I need air
You can bet your life I'll meet a pike who'll
Wolf me down for tea tonight
I want to be (I want to be)
Where the drownings are (drownings are)
You see it in the sea
River cool's where I belong
In my mersey paradise

I want to be (I want to be)
Where the drownings are (drownings are)
You see it in the sea
River cool's where I belong
Oh yeah
I want to be (I want to be)
Where the drownings are (drownings are)
You see it in the sea
River cool's where I belong
In my mersey paradise

    This tune has a great sixties sounding pop guitar in it, bit like here comes the sun by the beatles! = merseyside - river cool, (liverpool) - its a dark and humerous poke at the manchester/liverpool relationship (they don't get on that much, but ian brown is not a small minded fella - 'its not where your from its where your at' etc) - song has a great cockyness: river cool is where I belong (ie somewhere fab). Verses are great also: childlike ' wolf me down for tea tonight' and dark (romantic/suicidal/murderous even) - due to love/despair especially in verse 1. Its fab all round, paradise even.
