lyrics

River Lee

If I could take one little thing
About that day
It wouldn’t be the wellies
I left by the lakeside
It wouldn’t be the bare foot walk
All the way home
Or the look on your
Frowning face

You picked the picnic
I picked the place the boat was blue
The water muddy
You brought a rain coat
I got soaked through
The bloat was blue the water muddy

Sitting on the banks of the river lee
Sinking be the banks
with wet socks and pants
pretending there’s n
o where I’d rather be
but the tide is not right
nor the chemistry

If I could take
one little thing
about that day
it wouldn’t be the boat
it would be the company
it wouldn’t be the howling wind
knowing I would never see you again
letting
you believe things
I know would never work

You picked the picnic
I picked the place the boat was blue
The water muddy
You brought champagne
two plastic glasses
I drank it, now I taste guilty

Sitting on the banks of the river lee
Sinking be the banks
with wet socks and pants
pretending there’s n
o where I’d rather be
but the tide is not right
nor the chemistry
