Banks

Album: Out Of Body (2020)
  • I wanna be there when the voices in your head
    Are loud enough to make you lose your mind
    Just the same when you're dominating the day
    I wanna be the one who's by your side
    You know my love is not the jealous type
    It doesn't matter if we win or lose
    Oh, I could stay or I could come no matter where you're coming from
    I can be the one to let you choose

    (Oh) I wanna hold you close but never hold you back
    Just like the banks to the river
    (Oh) And if you ever feel like you are not enough
    I'm gonna break all your mirrors
    (Oh) I wanna be there when the darkness closes in
    To make the truth a little clearer
    (Oh) I wanna hold you close but never hold you back
    I'll be the banks for your river

    (Oh, ooh) I'll be the banks for your river
    (Oh, ooh) I'll be the banks for your river

    You are beautiful and wild at every turn
    Who am I to take control of that
    But everybody needs a voice they can follow
    When the water and the winds get bad

    You know my love is not the jealous type
    And it don't matter if we win or lose
    Oh, I could push or I could pull
    No matter what you're trying to do
    As long as I can flow along with you

    (Oh) I wanna hold you close but never hold you back
    Just like the banks to the river
    (Oh) And if you ever feel like you are not enough
    I'm gonna break all your mirrors
    (Oh) I wanna be there when the darkness closes in
    To make the truth a little clearer
    (Oh) I wanna hold you close but never hold you back
    I'll be the banks for your river

    (Oh, ooh) I'll be the banks for your river
    (Oh, ooh) I'll be the banks for your river

    Baby, I ain't saying that you need my help
    But you don't have to do it all by yourself
    So baby when the current gets strong
    And you need somewhere to rest your bones
    I wanna be there for you
    I wanna be strong for you

    (Oh) I wanna hold you close but never hold you back
    Just like the banks to the river
    (Oh) And if you ever feel like you are not enough
    I'm gonna break all your mirrors
    (Oh) I wanna be there when the darkness closes in
    To make the truth a little clearer
    (Oh) I wanna hold you close but never hold you back
    I'll be the banks for your river

    (Oh) I wanna hold you close but never hold you back
    (I'll be the banks for your river)
    (Oh) And if you ever feel like you are not enough
    (I'll be the banks for your river)
    (Oh) I wanna be there when the darkness closes in
    To make the truth a little clearer
    (Oh) I wanna hold you close but never hold you back
    I'll be the banks for your river Writer/s: Nathaniel Rinehart, Trent Dabbs, William Rinehart
