Washed By The Water

  • Daddy was a preacher
    She was his wife
    Just trying to make the world a little better
    You know, shine a light

    People started talking
    Just to hear their own voice
    Those people tried to accuse my father
    Said he made the wrong choice

    Though it might be painful
    You know that time will always tell
    Those people have long since gone
    My father never failed

    Even when the rain falls
    Even when the flood starts rising
    'Cause even when the storm comes
    I am washed by the water

    Even when the rain falls
    Even when the flood starts rising
    'Cause even when the storm comes
    I am washed by the water

    Even if the Earth crumbles under my feet
    Even if the ones I love turn around and crucify me
    I won't never ever let you down
    I won't fall
    I won't fall
    I won't fall as long as you're around me

    Even when the rain falls
    Even when the flood starts rising
    'Cause even when the storm comes
    I am washed by the water

    Even when the rain falls
    Even when the flood starts rising
    'Cause even when the storm comes
    I am washed by the water

    Even when the rain falls
    Even when the flood starts rising
    'Cause even when the storm comes
    I am washed by the water

    Even when the rain falls
    Even when the flood starts rising
    'Cause even when the storm comes
    I am washed by the water Writer/s: NATHANIEL RINEHART, WILLIAM RINEHART
