Lyrics

She woke up to hear the rain
Keeping time upon the pane
She heard the river change its mind
Keeping secrets sealed and signed

In the garden it grew dark
How she longed for Albert Park
She knew she couldn’t turn back time
The river always knowing what she’d find

Take me down and let me breathe
Watch the water make me grieve
The river my thief, the river my thief

The golden boy looked mighty good
He thought she was misunderstood
They came together like a dance
But they never ever really stood a chance

Take me down and let me breathe
Watch the water make me grieve
The river my thief, the river my thief

She had nothing left to cry,
holding on to Melbourne skies

She did her best to run away
The river laughed and made her stay
The golden boy had long since flown
She tended garden on her own

Take me down and let me breathe
Watch the water make me grieve
The river my thief, the river my thief
