Meet Me by the River's Edge
The Gaslight Anthem

See, I've been here for 28 years

Poundin' sweat beneath these wheels

We tattooed lines beneath our skin

No surrender, my Bobby Jean

See, I've been here for 28 years

Poundin' sweat beneath these wheels

We tattooed lines beneath our skin

No surrender, my Bobby Jean

And we've been burned by all our fears

Just from growin' up around here

Our father's factories marked our cards

While Eden burned against the stars

And Sally said, Sally said

I can't take no more regret

It cut us deep into our souls

Came and climbed into our bed

And Sally said, Sally said

Meet me by the river's edge

We're going to wash these sins away

Or else we won't come back again

You know I had these ballroom dreams

That, as a child came to me

I was a boy in Grandma's arms

A mother's pride and a wounded heart

And I was full with fiery wonder

You wore Audrey Hepburn pearls

You were the only one who understood me then

You're the only one who will

And Sally said, Sally said

I can't take no more regret

It cut us deep into our souls

Came and climbed into our bed

And Sally said, Sally said

Meet me by the river's edge

We're going to wash these sins away

Or else we won't come back again

And now I drive the one-oh-one

On a California night

And I'm amazed at all the stars

Beneath that old Hollywood sign

And they waltz the ballet up the boulevard

To a place we never kept

And I'm not sure if we belong here

If I never really left or if I can go home

And Sally said, Sally said

I can't take no more regret

It cut us deep into our souls

Came and climbed into our bed

And Sally said, Sally said

Meet me by the river's edge

We're going to wash these sins away

Or else we won't come back again

No retreat, no regrets

No retreat, no regrets

No retreat, no regrets

Meet me by the river's edge

No retreat, no regrets

No retreat, no regrets

No retreat, no regrets

Meet me by the river's edge
