There’s a House Across The River by Laura Marling

A post by Co-Creator Lindsay Kavet.

This morning I danced with my 1 year-old to this song.

I have used it for a past performer.

I love it.

I hope my daughter does not as much regret as this song does. I want her to jump in.

Here are the lyrics:

Theres a house across the river but alas i cannot swim And a garden of such beauty that the flowers seem to grin Theres a house across the riverbut alas i cannot swim

I’ll live my life regretting that i never jumped in!
Theres a boy across the riverwith short black curly hair He wants to be my lover and i want to be his peer Theres a boy across the river but alas i cannot swimAnd i never will get to put my arms around him

Theres a life across the riverthat was ment for me instead i live my life in constant misery Theres a life across the riverbut i do not see why i should please those who will never be pleased

There is gold across the river but i dont want noneThere is gold across the river but i dont want none
Gold is fleeting, gold is fickle, gold is fun!Gold is fleeting, gold is fickle, gold is fun!
There is gold across the riverbut i dont want noneI would rather be drythen held up by a golden gun
saying Work more earn more live more have more fun!
saying Work more earn more live more have more fun!
saying Work more earn more live more have more fun!
