Birch Tree

Foals

The city I was born in
I left a long time ago
We lost touch
Grew apart my friend
My heart's an old pole dancer
Troubled romancer, you know
It's a subway chancer
A question with no answer

Come meet me by the river
See how time it flows
I'll meet you by the river
See how time it flows

And when we age
Shed our skin and grow
We shed our layers
Spread our wings and go
My heart's an old black panther
Corrupted financer, you know
It's a troubled romancer
A question with no answer

Come meet me by the river
See how time it flows
I'll meet you by the river
See how time it flows
Come meet me by the river
See how time it flows
I'll meet you by the river
See how time it flows

Oh, now the river runs away, but I chase it
Time holds no fear when I turn round to face it
Oh, now the river runs away, but I chase it
Time holds no fear when I turn round to face it

Come meet me by the river
See how time it flows
I'll meet you by the river
See how time it flows

Oh, now the river runs away, but I chase it
Time holds no fear when I turn round to face it
Oh, now the river runs away, but I chase it
Time holds no fear when I turn round to face it.
