Take Me to the River Lyrics

[Verse 1: Lorde]
I don't know why I love her like I do
All the changes you put me through
Take my money, my cigarettes
I haven't seen the worst of it yet

[Pre-Chorus: Lorde]
I wanna know, can you tell me
Am I in love to stay?

[Chorus: Lorde]
Take me to the river, drop me in the water
Take me to the river, dip me in the water
Washing me down, washing me down

[Verse 2: Lorde]
I don't know why you treat me so bad
Think of all the things that we could have had
Love is a notion that I can't forget
My sweet sixteen I would never regret

[Pre-Chorus: Lorde]
I wanna know, can you tell me?
Am I in love to stay?

[Chorus: Lorde]
Take me to the river, drop me in the water
Push me in the water, dip me in the water
Washing me down, washing me

[Bridge: Lorde]
Hug me, squeeze me, love me, tease me
Till I can't, till I can't, I can't take no more

[Chorus: Lorde]
Dip me in the water, drop me in the river
Push me in the water, drop me in the river
Washing me down, washing me down

[Verse 3: Lorde]
I don't know why I love her like I do
All the trouble you put me through
Sixteen candles there on my wall
And here am I, the biggest fool of them all

[Pre-Chorus: Lorde]
I wanna know, can you tell me?
Am I in love to stay?

[Chorus: Lorde]
Take me to the river, drop me in the water
Dip me in the river, drop me in the water
Washing me down, washing me down
