THE RIVER

This holy water might break the spell
When the sun comes up we’ll fall to the ground
We’ll crawl around these poisons until we’re numb
I’ll play along now, my lips are shut, I won’t tell

CHORUS
Let me go to the river
Where I’ll cleanse away this spell
Let me go to the river
There I’ll dance when redemption begins

What if I was to whisper, ‘I’m not the same’
‘I don’t understand why you want to meddle with this flame?’
Would it mean I was too loud? And I stepped out of line?
Best I walk the other way, but I can’t leave you to die

CHORUS
Let me go to the river
Where I’ll cleanse away this spell
Let me go to the river
There I’ll dance when redemption begins
