"Drag The River"
(Morrissey/Boz Boorer)

Drag the river and within her
you may find a sliver
of the one of whom you speak
and who they seek
she would gaze into the river
as we'd look into a mirror
and her reflection would beckon her to
"join me join me join me join me
happy we will be"

On the coastal shore I'm sure
you'd break down if you saw
an abhorrent torrent crashing
as it pours
the countercurrent holds a secret
at the rise of tide
and it swells all alone for this heart born too high so
"join me join me join me join me"
I'm certain I heard her cry

By the river the soul
of submersible stone
every second of my life
prepares to go
she would call into the river
as she'd cry out for her mother
so stark, so haunt, deep enough for all I want
"join us join us join us join us
and happy we will be"
