Lord I don't know which way I am going
which way river gonna flow
it just seems that upstream I keep rowing
still got such a long way to go (x2)

then that light
it's your eye
I know I swear we'll find somewhere the streets are paved with gold
bullets fly
split the sky
but that's all right, sometime sunlight i'm streaming through the holes

oh-oh

Here's my take on the lyrics:

Lord I don't know which way I am going
which way river gonna flow
it just seems that upstream I keep rowing
still got such a long way to go (x2)

then that light
it's your eye
I know I swear we'll find somewhere the streets are paved with gold

Sure it's not "it just seems that upstream I keep rolling"?

Sounds like "sometimes sunlight comes streaming through the holes" to me. :)

I must say, this will surely become one of my favourite ever songs, it's just so lovely. It reminds me of the songs from Prospekt's March. :) And they are most wonderful!

I think that it's rowing, it just fits with rivers and flowing.. :)

But you guessed right at the "sometimes sunlight comes streaming through the holes" i suppose :)

How can you roll upstream?

:facepalm:

:laugh3:

It's rowing.
It's an expression. It's also used in Us Against the World.

Example: [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TaAVJk1x97Y"]The Kooks - Watching The Ships Roll In - YouTube[/ame]

And it's most definitely rolling. Listen very carefully.

I'm having trouble with "then that light, it's your eye". I think that's probably it, but I've seen a few different takes on it. "Then at last, it's your eye" (no) "then that light, hits your eye" (maybe?)

Hello, again! Here are the lyrics from my Japanese copy:

Lord I don't know which way I am going
Which way the river's going to flow
It just seems that upstream I keep rowing
Still got such a long way to row
Still got such a long way to row

Then that light hits your eyes
And I know I swear we'll find somewhere
The streets are paved with gold

Ohohoh

Do the Japanese lyrics include that last bit... the bullets fly, split the sky part?

I think these Japanese lyrics were made by ear by some EMI Japan employee.

These are more wrong than my lousy understanding capability.

That's my take on it, anyways :nod:

btw, I think that last verse (Bullets fly / Split the sky / But that's alright, sometimes sunlight comes streaming through the holes) is absolutely brilliant :wacky: Am I the only one that thinks this?
