  • There ain't no gold in this river
    That I've been washin' my hands in forever
    I know there is hope in these waters
    But I can't bring myself to swim
    When I am drowning in this silence
    Baby, let me in

    Go easy on me, baby
    I was still a child
    Didn't get the chance to
    Feel the world around me
    I had no time to choose
    What I chose to do
    So go easy on me

    There ain't no room for things to change
    When we are both so deeply stuck in our ways
    You can't deny how hard I have tried
    I changed who I was to put you both first
    But now I give up

    Go easy on me, baby
    I was still a child
    Didn't get the chance to
    Feel the world around me
    Had no time to choose
    What I chose to do
    So go easy on me

    I had good intentions
    And the highest hopes
    But I know right now
    It probably doesn't even show

    Go easy on me, baby
    I was still a child
    I didn't get the chance to
    Feel the world around me
    I had no time to choose
    What I chose to do
    So go easy on me
