"The River"
(written by Tanya Donelly)

Lose your war
And we can stay out all night
Lose your keys
And we can't go home
In a little time, in a little gin
We can touch hands again
Lose your head
Lose your warhead
Wrote a song for a room I left long ago
It was my hole
It was my hell
Now the girl that lives there
She's an exotic, a drunk
Leaves her clothes off, when it
Rains, run to the river
She carry me
She run me
All the way down
To the floor
Where it's warm
And dirty like a river
Dirty like a river
My hole, hell
Carry me
No, run me
All the way down
To the river
All I want is to be worthy of my hands
But she's got plans, dirty like a river
(You can't) run me down
(You can't) run me down
Run me down
Lose it
Lose your war

Don't worry, dance in the road.
