"River of Sorrow" lírica

Traducción al: ES SV

There is a black river
It passes by my window
Oh late at night, all dolled up like Christ
I walk the water between the piers

Singing
Oh, River of Sorrow
River of Time
River of Sorrow
Don't swallow this time

For we all know the baby has expired
Long ago she was pulled from the mire
And no precious liar or well-wisher
can return the love that was stolen1

Singing
Oh, River of Sorrow
River of Time
River of Sorrow
Don't swallow this time

Can you see the light at the end of the dark passageway?
Take me with you towards this light...
into the darkness ... passing over the faces in the river...
Hear me! I'm whispering in your ear!
Take me with you.2

Singing
Oh, River of Sorrow
River of Time
River of Sorrow
Don't swallow this time
