Handsome Family – Last Night I Went Out Walking lyrics

Last night I went out walking
Out on the edge of town
Not going no place special
Only wandering around

I came upon a river
I thought about what you said
And couldn't stop it flowing
And running through my head

You said that I've been changing
And never seemed to laugh
But I can't recall the last time you smiled
And it's tearing me in half

I want to run and tell youthe thoughts that are in my head
But I don't think that you'd believe
A single word I said

The river's water runs so cool
It calms my burning skin
It takes away my aching thoughts
And cleanses all my sin

So let it flow on, take me down
To sleep that quiet sleep
And roll my body back to you
My love you may always keep
