Lyrics

You must have seen it coming
A long long time ago
The ship of all your feelings
Shipwrecked in one go

What do you think about, at night when the river comes in?

You must have seen it coming
You must have bit your lip
First the red light
Then the green light
Then the whole damn ship

What do you think about, at night when the river comes in?
Does it make you cry?
Beneath the star of Venus

The motorcade is waiting
It’s waited all your life
The driver’s dead
His bony arm
Around the bones of his wife

And that’s true love, they’ve still got the radio on
Does it make you cry
Does it make you cry
Mmmmmm
Does it make you cry?

The giant fossil bugs
Are on the fossil trees
Exercise your powers
You’ll be one of these

What do you think about, at night when the river comes in
Does it make you cry
Does it make you cry
Mmmmmm
Does it make you cry?
Beneath the star of Venus
