Lyrics

SIX MILE RIVER

STANDING BY THE RIVER'S EDGE
A THOUSAND QUESTIONS IN YOUR HEAD
BLOOD AND TEARS FLOW MINGLED DOWN AGAIN
WAITING FOR A STONE TO SING
IN SPITE OF YOU
IN SPITE OF ME
ALL CREATION GROANS TO REST
IN PEACE

AND I IMAGINE
YOU'RE THE BEST OF FRIENDS
THE SIX MILE RIVER
AND YOU

SWEATER DOWN AND A BOOK IN HAND
A MUG OF TEA AND A RIGHTEOUS PEN
COLDER NOW CAUSE YOUR SHEDDING SKIN
BUT RAGING ON
BAPTIZED BY THIS UNDERTOE
AND RISING FROM THE TEARS YOU'VE SOWN
UNLIKE ANYTHING I'VE KNOWN
YOU SOLDIER ON

WHAT IS LOVE
TEACH US HOW
TO KNOW
WHAT IS LOVE
TEACH US HOW

THE LAMBS AND LIONS ARE KNEELING DOWN
MEETING ON THIS BROKEN GROUND
AND A LITTLE CHILD WILL TAKE YOU BOTH
BY THE HAND
OH BUT MERCY HEARS THE BELLS THAT RING
IN SPITE OF YOU
IN SPITE OF ME
WE STAND IN SILENCE
HOLDING OU FOR
PEACE

WHAT IS LOVE
TEACH US HOW TO KNOW
WHAT IS LOVE
TEACH US HOW

AND I IMAGINE
YOU'RE THE BEST
I IMAGINE
OH LOVE
I IMAGINE
YOUR THE BEST OF FRIENDS
THE SIX MILE RIVER
AND YOU
