The River Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I fought the spirit
With a sword in my side
Cheat... What a way out
Crack my rib, wait to die
I think I know you best when I sleep
I think I know everything

Me and my brothers
We have tongues sharp as knives
I found a way out
Make a noise, close your eyes
I think I talk to you best when I sing
I sing about almost everything

Oh god I need it
So let me see again
Take me to the river
And let me see again
Oh my god
Let me see again
Oh my god
Let me see again
Let me see again

Grace taught a debtor
Daily I'm strained to me
God how I feel it
Fetter pride to your feet

I'm gonna leave you the first chance I get [4x]

Oh god I need it
Well I was wrong again
Take me to the river
And make me clean again
Oh my god
Make me clean again
And oh my god
Let me see again

Songwriters
HULL, JAMES ALAN
