The Lyrics Are Below


North and South of the River


I want to 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 want to see, and I want to hear

To understand your fears

But we're north and south of the river

I've been doing it wrong all of my life

This holy town has turned me over

A young man running when he didn't understand

The wind from the lough just get colder, colder

There was a badness that had its way

Love wasn't lost - love will have its day

North and south of the river

North and south of the river


Can we stop playing this altar tune?

Darling, I don't have the answer

I want to 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

North and south of the river

North and south of the river


Some high ground is not worth taking

Some connections are not worth making

This old church bell no longer ringing

Some old songs are not worth bringing

North - north and south of the river
