River

Album: Coming Home (2015)
  • Been traveling these wide roads for so long
    My heart's been far from you
    Ten-thousand miles gone

    Oh, I wanna come near and give ya
    Every part of me
    But there's blood on my hands
    And my lips aren't clean

    In my darkness I remember
    Momma's words reoccur to me
    "Surrender to the good Lord
    And he'll wipe your slate clean"

    Take me to your river
    I wanna go
    Oh, go on
    Take me to your river
    I wanna know

    Tip me in your smooth waters
    I go in
    As a man with many crimes
    Come up for air
    As my sins flow down the Jordan

    Oh, I wanna come near and give ya
    Every part of me
    But there's blood on my hands
    And my lips aren't clean

    Take me to your river
    I wanna go
    Go on,
    Take me to your river
    I wanna know

    I wanna go, wanna go, wanna go
    I wanna know, wanna know, wanna know
    Wanna go, wanna go, wanna go
    Wanna know, wanna know, wanna know
    Wanna go, wanna go, wanna go
    Wanna know, wanna know, wanna know

    Take me to your river
    I wanna go
    Lord, please let me know
    Take me to your river
    I wanna know Writer/s: AUSTIN JENKINS, CHRIS VIVION, JOSHUA BLOCK, TODD MICHAEL BRIDGES
