Lyrics

I recognized the way she moved
Her hands on the water
The fire burning in the heart
A ferryman’s daughter
Hallelujah, is that what she’s saying?
Hallelujah, the gods are playing

He didn’t feel the lightning strike
How long was he waiting?
An echo rising deep from the heart
The sound of it’s breaking

Not even one more night
Spent here without her
Not even one more night
So down the river

The morning raised a million suns
How long was he sleeping?
All his stories shattered at once
Beginnings and endings

Not even one more night
Spent here without her
Not even one more night
So down the river

I do nothing
And nothing is left undone
I can do nothing
And nothing is left undone

Remove the blindfold and you’ll see
The danger’s gone
The flower’s growing from the stone
Like they told you that it would
That it would

Not even one more night
Spent without her

Hallelujah, is that what she’s saying?
Hallelujah, the gods are playing

I do nothing
And nothing is left undone
Nothing…
