  1. Up The River

Lyrics

Up the river

One look in the firelight was all she needed to catch me
Sharp hook and a careless bite and I was on my journey
One by one we swim up the river
Into the darkness 1, 2, 3
Flesh is weak as is the conscience
All is forfeit woe is me

It took but a moment more at the point of no return
Playing within the fire got my fingers burned
One by one we swim up the river
Water’s cold and the tide has turned
Flesh is weak as is the heart
Another lesson and nothing learned

Like an old book not often read pages stuck together
Has a new life and a second wind and a breath of stormy weather
Set course with the sails full into the wild blue yonder
Rudder and masts are gone, lost in time to wander

One by one we swim up the river
Truth be told I love the chase
I don’t mind the stand and deliver
But this time I lost the race

One by one we swim up the river
Dangle at the end of the pole
Lose our hearts and lose our minds
Finally we lose our soul
