about

Originally released on the Mint Biscuit album "Leap Of Faith" (2020).

Living in a Lakeland paradise can have its drawbacks, when you think the whole world is against you and "the neighbours don't like you any more". Just don't let it get to you, eh.

lyrics

River Carry You

You say that it’s serious
You want to live in a bigger house with a bigger garden
And more room for all your stuff
And a fully tiled ensuite

You say you need to move on from here
You got sick of this street years ago
And all the cars, and all the passing feet

You say the neighbours don’t like you any more
You say they talk about you in the dark
And as you hide beneath the sheets

You wish for an exit from it all
You wish that that rain would never fall
Yet you wish the river would carry you to the sea

You say the people get you down
You say their words are mean
And their faces, and all their screaming kids

You say you’re sick of all the dogs
Doing their business on the street
And all the banging dustbin lids

You wish for an exit from it all
You wish that that rain would never fall
Yet you wish the river would carry you, to the sea

Well I’ve got news for you my friend
You’ve gotta get up from your bed
Walk right down the street, and over that bridge

You’ll never get away, so why not today
You’ve gotta make it at least as far as the park
Make it safe across that bridge

Don’t let that river carry you to the sea
Don’t let that river carry you to the sea
