Washing of the Water - Lyrics

River, river carry me home
Livin' river carry me home
River, river carry me home
To the place where I come from

So deep, so wide
Will you take me on your back for a ride?
And if I should fall
Would you swallow me deep inside?
River, teach me how to flow
'cause I feel like I'm sinking down
I thought that I could get along
But here in this water
My feet won't touch the ground
Now I need something
To turn myself around

Oo and away
Away toward the sea
River deep
Could you lift up and carry me?
Or roll on through the heartland
Til the sun has left the sky?
River, river carry me high
Til the washing of the water
Makes it all alright
Let your water reach me
Like she reached me tonight

Letting go
It's so hard
The way it's hurting now
To get this love untied
It's tough to stay with this thing
'cause if I follow through
I'll face what I've denied
I'll get those hooks out of me
And I'll take out the hooks
That I've sunk deep in her side
And kill that fear with emptiness
And loneliness I hide

River, oh river, river running deep
Bring me something
To help me get to sleep
And in the washing of the water
Will you take it all away
And bring me something
To take this pain away
