lyrics

I’ve lived this life so long it’s all I know
You’ll find me where the steady current flows
Casting hopeful lines to land a catch
Then home to feast on what the hook has snatched

All of us are swimming to survive
Running like the salmon through the lonely tide
I’ve come this far without a hand to guide
Crowned for all to see with hooks and flies

I live the dreams of poets and fools
I play the king of fishers
Between the rocks and the river pools
I play the king of fishers
Astride my canvas throne I rule my land
This tiny piece of England I command
The king of fishers

Alone by night I sink to fathoms deep
And dream of breathing water as I sleep
Oh I’ll see the lure of love before I wake
But never find the nerve to take the bait

Come the morning nothing will have changed
Trudging to the river to play the role again
Summer, winter, always in my place
Silent as another loveless day escapes

I live the dreams of poets and fools
I play the king of fishers
Between the rocks and the river pools
I play the king of fishers
Astride my canvas throne I rule my land
This tiny piece of England I command
The king of fishers

Wherever placid water flows
I play the king of fishers
As bitter seasons come and go
I play the king of fishers
I long to be pulled upstream
To where the water is wild
From the dead calm of my life
The king of fishers
