Recorded live with two 1950's RCA microphones at White Arc Studios with the addition of one background vocal track at the end. This is the audio from the YouTube video of the same name.


If only my feet could fall as fast as a heart does
I would be so long gone
But I'm stuck, stuck under your thumb
I can't get up
I can't get up, up I can't get up
If only my eyes could see as high as a mountain
Or wherever your heart's gone
But I have fallen on the bank of this river
I can't get up
I can't get up, up I can't get up
If only my heart could speak into this river
And you'd drink me up
I could be free of all these lonesome shivers
I could give myself up (give myself up)
We all go back to the river
We will all come undone
And there you will be, my love, with the faintest touch
And I will give myself up
Give myself up, up
I will give myself up
