lyrics

Now you
You're here for me
All dressed up
Against the lonely.

In me
I see in you
That you have known
Lonely too.

Been in flight
been to places
I'd ground my feet
In these river banks for you
For you.

Run river dry
Of ships and coals
Sound sounding home
By the light of you
Of you.

Words were spoke
And the river flowed
To the rhythm of our parts
Just chewing sparks
Against the dark.

I've never been so alive
By the banks of the river
By the banks of the Tyne.

We came by the rock
Where the waters meet
And gather towards the town
These rivers graft
Under bridges sat

Low and wide
With steel clad grins
Bearing sleepy teeth above
Above the deep
Deep river sleep.

I've never been
So alive
By the banks of the river
By the banks of the Tyne.

What we built before
And crafted with
Pretty little bones
And firm hips.
What we built before
And crafted with
Armies of coal
And fleets of ships.
