Alvvays – Next Of Kin lyrics
[Verse 1]
We walked along the rocks for nearly an hour
I caught the way you looked at me in the sunlight
You took something before you went in the shower
To help suppress the things that make you feel uptight

[Pre-Chorus]
If I'd known you couldn't swim
We would never have gone in

[Chorus 1]
I left my love in the river
The only one who sees
I lost his hand in the current
It was the life I wanted and I'd hoped for
And now I am left sifting through the leaves

[Verse 2]
The sun so hot, I saw his skin through his t-shirt
The grass so tall, we knew we wouldn't be found
We climbed into the stream so no one would be heard
And in no time at all, there wasn't a sound

[Pre-Chorus]
If I'd known you couldn't swim
We would never have gone in

[Chorus 1]
I left my love in the river
The only one who sees
I lost his hand in the current
It was the life I wanted and I'd hoped for
And now I am left sifting through the leaves

[Bridge]
No color to his skin
Inform the next of kin
No color to his skin

[Chorus 2]
I left my love in the river
The only one I see
I left his hand in the current
And now I am left blowing through the trees

[Outro]
Ooh
Ooh
