Just To Keep From Drowning Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I went down to the river
Just to see if it would rain
I looked down in the water
I could not believe my eyes

A face and a reflection
Was staring back at me, ah ah
And it scares me just to think
About the power that this woman has on me

Just to keep from drowning
I get down on my knees to pray
Just to keep from drowning
I'll do anything you say
Help me now, help me now

It rained the day I met her
I should have known that was a sign
But I couldn't see the weather
That woman almost made me blind

I wanted her to love me
Now all I want is to be free
And it scares me just to think
About the power that this woman has on me

Just to keep from drowning
I'll do anything I can
Just to keep from drowning
Lord, I need a helping hand
Help me now, help me now

I hear the river call my name
But the water's dark and cold
I see your face and I'm afraid this time
That I will lose my soul
I will lose my soul, I might lose my soul
Help me, help me now

Just to keep from drowning
I get down on my knees to pray
Just to keep from drowning
I'll do anything you say
Help me now, help me please

What else's gonna save me from drowning here
Just to deliver me, keep from drowning
I get on my knees to pray
Just to free my soul
Just to keep from drowning

You know I'd do
Anything you say, woman
Ooh
Have me talking, baby
Drowning, drowning

Can't we
Living like it should
With unbroken heart
I'd do anything

Just to keep from drowning
Just to keep from burning down
I get on my knees to pray

I said it scares me
Just to think about you woman
How will she help for me
I gotta keep from drowning
