    Smile Re: River of You (Country Lyric)

    Hi! The quoted is the lyric of American country song--River of You. Could someone please help me out from the questions as below? Thanks in advance!


    Q1: One sweet look and then you=?

    Q2: Pull me under with the touch that's like no other =?
    under with the touch=?

    Q3: Like I got nothing to lose than you=?



    I told myself I'd stay away
    I got no business around here today
    You're so not good for me
    And everybody knows
    The way you break my heart again and again
    But before I know
    I'm too close
    One sweet look and then you

    Pull me under with the touch that's like no other I'm
    Drifting, drowning
    There's nothing I can do but fall into the river of you
    When I thought I saw love's reflection
    Just to feel your cold rejection
    Every tear adds to the water
    That I keep swimming in
    Even I know, I'm a fool, a reckless fool for you
    Cause I keep coming around here
    Like I got nothing to lose than you

    Pull me under with the touch that's like no other I'm
    Drifting, drowning
    There's nothing I can do but fall into the river of you

    When you pull me under with the touch that's like no other I'm
    Drifting, drowning
    There's nothing I can do but fall into the river of you
    Pull me under with the touch that's like no other I'm
    Drifting, drowning
    There's nothing I can do but fall into the river of you

    Yeah I fall into the river of you

    Then you pull me under
    Fall into the river of you
    Pull me under...

    Hi Anglika,

    Thank you very much for your help. Can I rephrase the sentence as below?

    Just a sweet look of yours that pull me down to the river of love as if nobody did that.

    I am not sure about "with the touch that'ls like no other"

    Just one single look from you is so sweet that it pulls me into the river of love with its [the look's] touch that is like no other touch.

    A touch that is like no other - it is unique, there is no other touch that feels like it.
