You're just like a river”

Here’s more of the lyrics and what it could mean:
Blowing bubbles in the bath, I can't stop from thinking lately
You could be the one, to have the honor of my babies
Hope they have your eyes and that crooked smile
Was a desеrt 'fore I met you, I was in a drought
The second verse, given above, starts with, “Blowing bubbles in the bath, I can’t stop from thinking lately,” which describes herself, thinking so much about her significant lover that she can’t even stop thinking about them even in the bath. Moreover, the last line, “was a desert ‘fore I met you, I was in a drought,” describes what her life was like before she met them.
This song carries the intimate passion that she feels for her significant other and is the constant theme of this song.
