​River Shannon

This song is by The Himalayans and appears on the album She Likes The Weather (2002).

Oh Shannon, I might be dreaming
The stars fell down on the factory
The cathedrals repeating, the light receding
Bells on another day

Have you ever seen my face
Fast asleep and dreaming?
Oh Shannon, the lightning fell
There's an army down by the riverside

But I might be dreaming
I can see that you don't believe me
And I might be dreaming
If I dip into your water
Fall through my reflection
I will shadow myself anyway

Have you ever seen my face
fast asleep and dreaming?
And it don't seem right
That I don't get no sleep at night
What's the river gonna know about leaving?

Oh Shannon, the soldiers are coming
The guns are drumming the night away
Rain, rain go away
Come again some other day
When I got time for believing

Have you ever seen my face
Fast asleep and dreaming? Yeah
What is there left to believe in?

Oh Shannon, I might be dreaming
I might be wasting my life away listening to you
Down under the streetlight you shudder and beat
The edge of the waterway

And I know if I had time
I might dive in your water
Lie right down in the evening rain
I just want this pain, pain to go away
Come again some other day
When I got time for bleeding, yeah

Have you ever seen my face
Fast asleep and dreaming?
And it don't seem right that I don't get no sleep at night
What's the river gonna know about leaving?

Oh Shannon, I might be dreaming
