Waifs – The River lyrics

I stood and watched my daddy die
No one could help his plight

He was trying to save our home
On the day that the river rose

Well, "It came alive"
I heard them say
"There was nothing we could do
As he washed away"

Running from the heart of it
Right into the cause of it
Running from the heart of it
Right into the core of it
Running from the heart...

I'm a man now but I'm only seven
Well, it's been hard since daddy went to heaven

"Stay in now", my mum said
And he worked his land, his life a tear

Running from the heart of it
Right into the cause of it
Running from the heart of it
Right into the core of it
Running from the heart...

Hey, but once you follow me late at night
We'll go down down to the river where the moon is bright
And we can wash our sorrow down
Underneath that shining round

You'll be sitting in the still night air
Cani, Phil, daddy there

Life and death and all this power
Underneath these these shining stars

Running from the heart of it
Right into the cause of it
Running from the heart of it
Right into the core of it
Running from the heart...

You give us strength, while we talk
