By the river's dark, i wandered on
I lived my life in babylon
And i did forget my holy song
And i had no strength in babylon
By the river's dark, where i could not see
Who was waiting there, who was hunting me?
And he cut my lip and he cut my heart
So i could not drink from the river dark
And he covered me and i saw within
My lawless heart and my wedding ring
I did not know and i could not see
Who was waiting there, who was hunting me?
By the river's dark, i panicked on
I belonged at last to babylon

Then he struck my heart with a deadly force
And he said, "this heart, it is not yours"
And he gave the wind, my wedding ring
And he circled us with everything
By the river's dark in a wounded dawn
I live my life in babylon
Though i take my song from a withered limb
Both song and tree they sing for him
Be the truth unsaid and the blessing gone
If i forget my babylon
I did not know and i could not see
Who was waiting there, who was hunting me?
By the river's dark where it all goes on
By the river's dark in babylon
