    Lyrics

    Suzanne takes you down to her place by the river
    You can hear the boats go by
    You can spend the night forever
    And you know that she's half crazy
    And that's why you want to be there
    And she feeds you tea and oranges
    That came all the way from China
    And just when you want to tell her
    That you have no love to give her
    She gets you on her wavelength
    And lets the river answer
    That you've always been her lover

    And you want to travel with her
    And you want to travel blind
    And you think you maybe trust her
    'Cause she's touched your perfect body with her mind

    And Jesus was a sailor
    When he walked upon the water
    And he spent a long time watching
    From a lonely wooden tower
    And when He knew for certain
    Only drowning men could se Him
    He said "All men shall be sailors,
    Then, until the sea shall free them"
    But He Himself was broken
    Long before the sky would open
    Forsaken almost human,
    He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone

    And you want to travel with Him
    And you want to travel blind
    And you think you maybe trust Him
    For He's touched your perfect body with His mind

    Suzanne takes you down to her place by the river
    You can hear the boats go by
    You can spend the night forever
    And the sun pours down like honey
    On our lady of the harbor
    And she shows you where to look
    A mid the garbage and the flowers
    There are heroes in the seaweed
    There are children in the morning
    They are leaning out for love
    And they will lean that way for ever
    While Suzanne holds her mirror

    And you want to travel with her
    And you want to travel blind
    And you think you maybe trust her
    'Cause you've touched her perfect body with your mind
