Song Lyrics

I wanna reach out over the Loch
And feel your hand across the water
Walk with you along an unapproved road
Not looking over my shoulder

I wanna see, I wanna hear
To understand your fear
But we’re north and south of the river

I’ve been doing it wrong all of my life
This holy town has turned me over
A man on the run from what he didn’t understand
As the wind from the Loch blew colder and colder

There was a badness that had its way
Love wasn’t lost, it just got mislaid
North and south of the river
North and south of the river

Can we stop playing these old tattoo’s?
Darling I don’t have the answer
I wanna meet you where you are
I don’t need you to surrender

There is no feeling so alone
As when the one you’re hurting is your own
North and south of the river

There’s some high ground its not worth taking
And some connections are not worth making
There’s an old church bell no longer ringing
And some old songs are not worth singing

North and south of the river
North and south of the river
Oo-oo-oo-oo…
Oo-oo-oo-oo…
Oo-oo-oo-oo…
Oo-oo-oo-oo…
