Antony and the Johnsons are a Mercury Prize-winning music act from New York City, New York, United States. The band is fronted by Anohni (f.k.a. Antony) who was born in 1971 and is a transgender woman. During the mid 90s Antony started solo; after originally producing songs with Blacklips Performance Cult and other late-night cabarets she had a number of songs to work with. In 1995 she assembled a backing group—the self-styled Antony and the Johnsons—and began to focus on the musical side of her performances. Show more ...

River of Sorrow - Antony and the Johnsons

River of Sorrow

There is a black river
It passes by my window
And late at night
All dolled up like Christ
I walk the water
Between the piers

Singing
Oh
River of sorrow
River of time, river
River of sorrow
Don't swallow this time

For we all know the baby has expired
Long ago she was pulled from the mire
And no precious liar or well-wisher
Can return the love that was stolen

Oh
River of sorrow
River of time, river
River of sorrow
Don't swallow this time

Can you see the light
At the end of the dark passageway
Take me wit you towads this light
Into the darkness passing over the faces in the river
Hear me!
I'm whispering in your ear!

Oh
River of sorrow
Oh, river of time
River of sorrow
Don't swallow this time

Oh
River of sorrow
Oh, river of time
River of sorrow
Don't swallow this time
