NORTH AND SOUTH OF THE RIVER (Bono & The Edge / Christy Moore) Christy Moore Also recorded by : U2 I want to reach out over the lough And feel your hand across the water Walk with you along an unapproved road Not looking over my shoulder I want to see I want to hear To understand your fears But we're north and south of the river I've been doing it wrong all of my life This holy town has turned me over A young man running from what he didn't understand As the wind from the lough just blew colder and colder There was a badness that had its way But love was not lost it just got mislaid North and south of the river Can we stop playing these old tattoos? Darling I don't have the answer I want to meet you where you are I don't need you to surrender There is no feeling so alone as when the one you're hurting is your own North and south of the river Some high ground is not worth taking Some connections are not worth making There's an old church bell no longer ringing And some old songs not worth singing North and south of the river North and south of the river
