lyrics

my love lives by the river, far across the town
I go out late to meet him, to the water we go down
hand in hand we swim a steady line
my lover sings to me across the borderline

my lover is a handsome man, he's dark and he is wild
the girls all watch him sweetly and they pull him with their guile
but oh, his eyes are always locked in mine
my lover sings to me across the borderline

oh my lover is not steady, no courting man is he
while others call more constantly, he never chases me
he pays no mind to passing marks of time
but he still sings to me across the borderline

my lover is a rambler, I cannot keep him here
but though he’s on the highway, his heart is always near
late at night he's drinking blood red wine
and singing soft to me across the borderline
