Cross The River on Your Own - Mew

I know a way to kill the ripple from your touch
And what if I can only settle for much?
It stays with you
You're like a sky so drizzly
That I want
'Till I take it out on you
Show me how to keep you in

You be good to me
And I, I'll be good to you
Don't let go of your light
It's your best friend in the world
I hope you'll learn what Heaven knows
Who cares if I go?

I know a way to tell the middle from the start
And what if telling makes the brittle fall apart?
In time although my hair turns grey and grizzly
Stay with me

So we cursed a lot
And I'm ashamed of walking out
Oh it's just too bad, we got stuck in the past
We're hiding there in silence now
It sounds familiar
You be good to me
And I, I'll be good to you
I'm off to work
But I don't see you turn

Cross the river on your own
On the other side
You wanna go far away
On the other side
The riverbed
Follow us there

You be good to me
And I, I'll be good to you
Don't let go of your light
It's your best friend in the world
I hope you'll learn what Heaven knows
Who cares if I go?
So we cursed a lot
And I'm ashamed of walking out
And my thoughts are wrought with a shortsighted secret
And missing you
Why do you cry, Paddy?
Long as I've been alive
Old as I am
I've still no plan
I'm off to work
But I don't see you turn
My life was OK
I was counting my steps
