By This River

As sung by Martin L. Gore
Martin's influential version appears on the "Y Tu Mama Tambien" soundtrack (released in 2002)


Here we are stuck by this river
You and I underneath the sky
That's ever falling down down down
Ever falling down

Through the day as if on an ocean
Waiting here always failing to remember
Why we came came came
Wonder why we came

You talk to me as if from a distance
And I reply with impressions chosen
From another time time time
From another time

(Thanks to Mr Love for the transcription)
Original
Written by Eno / Roedelius / Moebius


Here we are stuck by this river
You and I underneath a sky
That's ever falling down down down
Ever falling down

Through the day as if on an ocean
Waiting here always failing to remember
Why we came came came
I wonder why we came

You talk to me as if from a distance
And I reply with impressions chosen
From another time time time
From another time
