lyrics

High tide on Friday night.
From the river-side path,
The middle of the water
Seems higher than the side.
Bulge with the high tide,
Like the crown of the road.

Late spring low water mark.
Reveals a clotted mud.
Coloured to match the rings
Around the footings of the bridge.
Dark pea-soup tinged.
Starts to stink in the sun.

Listless and I’m lazy, I
I'm lulled by warmer weather these days.
Winter started wilting and dark July
Bloomed on the vine, became November.

Some summertime rain
Dampen the dust down.
For little more than a morning, cast the world
In blinding gleam.
All the old cars seem
Shiny and new.

High tide on Friday night.
From the river-side path,
The middle of the water
Seems higher than the side.
Bulge with the high tide,
Like the crown of the road.

Listless and I’m lazy, I
I'm lulled by warmer weather these days.
Winter started wilting and dark July
Bloomed on the vine, became November.
