From the Rivers to the Ocean

Bill Callahan


When, when you were blind
You touched things for their shape
Have faith in wordless knowledge
Have faith in wordless knowledge

Well, I can tell you about the river
Or we could just get in
The body the rain made of our days before we knew

We are swimming in the rivers
Of the rains of our days before we knew
And it's hard to explain
What I was doing or thinking before you

I guess I was a decent man holding on
Following the river from above like a bird
With faith in wordless knowledge
And the fallen stars they flew to
And I knew they were sewing something
Something well-made made for me and you

We are swimming in the rivers
Of the rains of our days before we knew
And it's hard to explain
What I was doing or thinking before you

The city was a fist, I lived on its wrist
And I took myself a good long look around
And the river grew higher and wider
Deeper and darker as I was closing in
And it led me to you which led me to say, "Let's get *in*"
We got in the river and it broked us
Made us think of sex between us
At a time in our lives old before we knew

We were swimming in the rivers
Of the rains of our days before we knew
And it's hard to explain
What I was doing or thinking before you

And that beautiful thing you said lying in bed
About all the things I could think of at the end of the day
But of all the places my mind could go
It always comes loping back to you

We are swimming in the rivers
Of the rains of our days before we knew

So meet me in the ocean and we'll ride the waves
From the rivers to the ocean
Each wave a lunging panther
Sharp-eyed and true

We are swimming in the rivers
Of the rains of our days before we knew
And it's hard to explain
What I was doing or thinking before you

Have faith in wordless knowledge
Have faith in wordless knowledge
