The River Liffey, Dublin

I wanna reach out over the lough and feel your hand across the water
Walk with you along an unapproved road, not looking over my shoulder
I wanna see and I wanna hear
To understand your fears
But we're north and south of the river


Can we stop playing these old tattoos?
Darling, I don't have the answer
I wanna meet you where you are, I don't need you to surrender
'Cause there's no feeling that's so alone, as when the one you're hurting is your own
North and south of the river
