water & air lyrics – cat power

i was dragged out by the sh*r* man
a very poor man
a very nice man
a family man

my lover drifted down the river,
below the dark water
the devil all around

yesterday on the street,
someone called out your name
someone thought that you were me

last night there was a party
i could not go
i walked around it
i thought about it
all night long

today there’s a newspaper
about you and me
and the day we were married,
the same day

the same day they fell in love
the same day they died in love

i did not want you to die alone

rusty river run down
run, run as fast as you can, oh, run
rusty river run ragged
and drag my lover’s self back to me
i’ll meet him there:
water and air

oh, to be at the bottom of a river,
below the dark water,
the devil all around,
the devil all around
