Shallow Rivers

Shallow rivers run between us
Where a stone may never sink
Though we taste, we are left thirsty
For a deep and soulful drink

Narrow channels, barely open
Fraught with dangers out of view
In the current, we are helpless
Still I cling to you

Grab me woman, take me under
'Til I canít tell up from down
We have barely got our feet wet
And I want, I want to drown

Shallow rivers run between us 
Never mind the nevermore
Up ahead the water quickens
I can hear those rapids roar

Narrow channels, barely open
Flood the waves with treachery
How I long to see the sunrise 
On a peaceful sea

Grab me woman, take me under 
'Til I canít tell up from down
We have barely got our feet wet
And I want, I want to drown
