The River Rise
Mark Lanegan Lyrics

Oh the river rise
And it's a mile high
Is this worth tryin'
Is this worth tryin'
Cause I could fall
Like a tear
Well there's nothing else I can do

When I'm not alone
Nothings beside me
What one eye sees
The other's blind in
Well I could fall
As if I was young
With a lifetime to think of you

Fire one for losing
And two for hiding
Keep river moving
Movin' right by me
I could fall
And there's nothin' else I can do

Ah the river rise
And it's a mile high
Has this world turned
Has this world tried
'Cause I could fall
Like a tear
well there's nothin' else I can do

Up on the river rise
She's a mile high

One of my favorite songs ever written. Rest in peace Mark Lanegan. Wish I could've met you before you left. Glad you spent your final years in a beautiful place.

A voice silenced too soon. </3


Thanks Mark, your music is part of the soundtrack of my life. RIP


R.I.P Mark Lanegan, thanks for the music! Say hello to Kurt Cobain, Layne Staley, Chris Cornell, and Scott Weiland for us

Who else is here after reading Mark’s memoir to re-listen to the opening now knowing that the whistling is from some random hobo cookie jar?

cielo in una stanza

A true masterpiece clearly influenced by Tim Buckley's "The River".
