LyricsEdit

They'll be singing out loud 
When the water goes through the crowd
They'll be howling for you 
When the waves come crashing through

I brought my friend, here he comes
Splashing and gurgling for you
Now the water runs through the streets unimpaired
Crashing through

They'll be saying your name
Every voice different, every word the same
They'll be holding you up
Too close to the sun
But I will make them stop

I brought my friend, here he comes
Splashing and gurgling for you
And now the water runs through the streets unimpaired
Rushing through

They'll start singing, and you'll stand in the light
When my friend gets here, he will set things right
They'll be singing for one thing and they'll get this instead
Let them come and get me, let them strike me dead

I brought my friend, here he comes
Splashing and gurgling for you
Now the water runs through the streets unimpaired
Rushing through

I brought my friend, here he comes
Splashing and gurgling for you
And now the water runs through the streets unimpaired 
Rushing through
