Song Description

It's the last song in my EP Strange Love Songs.

Story Behind the Song

I wrote this song when I lived in India. After a very hot summer, I finally was hot enough (and curious enough) to take a dip in the holy river Ganges. It's a very dirty river and Hindus believe that it purifies everything. At night you can often see candles in little clay pots with flowers floating by.

Lyrics

An Ocean of sorrow
I came to the river of bliss
Here I am praying to drown

The king lost his crown
The queen lost her gown
I caught the mirror frown as I fell down and down and down

An Ocean of sorrow
I came to the river of bliss
Here I am praying to drown

All pains float away
like candles on the river
