Next of Kin Lyrics

Next of Kin - Alvvays

We walked along the rocks for nearly an hour

 

I caught the way you looked at me in the sunlight

 

You took something before you went to the shower

 

You have suppressed the things that

Make you feel uptight

 

If I had known you couldn't swim

We would never have gone in

 

I left my love in the river

 

The only one who sees

 

I lost his hand in the current

 

It was the life I wanted and I hoped for

 

And now I'm left sifting through the leaves

 

His arms so hard I saw his skin through his t-shirt

 

They grabbed so tight he knew they wouldn't

Defend

 

We climbed into the stream so

No one will be heard

 

And in no time at all

It wasn't a sound

 

If I had known you couldn't swim

We would never have gone in

 

I left my love in the river

 

The only one who sees

 

I lost his hand in the current

 

It was the life I wanted and I hoped for

 

And now I am left sifting through the leaves

 

No colour to his skin I follow next of kin

 

No colour to his skin

 

I left my love in the river

 

The only one I see

 

I lost his hand in the current

 

And now I have grown through the trees

 

 

Aaahhhh woahhhhh
