St. Lawrence River

This song is by David Usher and appears on the album Little Songs (1998) and on the album Hallucinations (2003).

Original video
Smells on the air
See there, it's crushing
The final impression
The stains on the paper
Where words fell like water
Unearth all the changes
That never did matter
I think its beginning to freeze here

Caught in the rage
And the fire of things
All the brightness that burns me
I'm fumbling through
Like a child in the dark
When the nakedness comes
I am shocked by the colour
The glorious way your skin

Comes alive
And I never thought we'd make it back so soon
Might be nice
But I knew you'd be your own destroyer
Comes a time
And I always thought I'd make it up to you

Here, please forgive me
How could we escape
All the bitterness
Piled upon bitterness
Held in the face of the things
That I don't understand
Intellectualize
Over and over

This helplessness suits us
Funny how quiet
Has slipped to our corners
And worn all our edges away
You are watching
Breathing and baiting
Wanting and warming
And cautiously waiting

For some simple signal
To creep cross your conscience
Uncover redemption
And oh, did I mention?
I carried you down
To the St. Lawrence River
The banks running dirty
The water's beginning to freeze here
Solid by morning
And I'll freeze here
Winter by morning

Comes alive
And I never thought you'd get me back so soon
Might be nice
But its only if my own destroyer
Comes alive
And I always knew I'd make it up to you

I saw on your face
Such a curious grin
As I let go your hand
I was desperate to hold you again
But you're sinking
Too deep in the water
Outsmarted myself
And so easily gave up
What I wanted
Solid by morning
What I wanted
Winter by morning

Comes alive
And I never thought you'd make it up so soon
Might be nice
But I always knew you're my destroyer
Comes a time
And I always thought I'd make it up to you

Solid by morning
And I'll freeze here
Winter by morning
