The Decemberists – Till The Water Is All Long Gone lyrics

[Chorus:]
They came down from the mountains
They strained too long from the fountain
And all the while
All the while they longed for us
But I won't betray, I won't betray, I won't betray, I won't
No, I won't betray, I won't betray, I won't betray, I won't
Till the water's all long gone

[Verse:]
And you, my sweet flower
And how you proved more sweet by the hour
And loath those eyes, loath those eyes
To lose you
My tender rose, my slender rose, my darling
My tender rose, my slender rose, my? Darling
But my darlin's long long long...

[Chorus:]
They came down from the mountains
They strained too long from the fountain
Oh my girl, oh my love, I've lost you
But I won't betray, I won't betray, I won't betray, I won't
No, I won't betray, I won't betray, I won't betray, I won't
Till the water's all long gone
