Take Me to the River



The following poem is meant to be sung...


Take me to the river

Wash me in the water

Relieve me of all of my sins


No I have not been good

No I have to been great

But please don't hate

Me for my indiscretions


Know that I always loved you

Know that I will always love you


It just that I blamed you

For things inside me

It was easier to see

Our problems as external flaws

Than internal complexities


Take me to the river

Dump me in the water

Relieve me of all of my sins


No I haven't been good

No I haven't been great

But please don't hate me for my indiscretions


Know that I always loved you

Know that I will always love you

I just didn't know how to

manage my anxieties


I am not proud of

some of my actions

And if I could do it all again

Maybe I would do it differently


Take me to the river

Wash me in the water

Relieve me of all my sins


No I haven't been good

No I haven't been great

But please don't hate

Me for my indiscretions

Please let me be free

Let be free from worry

That your life was put on hold for me

Only to be let go eventually


Take me to the river

Wash me in the water

Relieve me of all my sins


No I haven't been good

No I haven't been great

But please don't hate

Me for my indiscretions


No I haven't been good

No I haven't been great

But please don't hate

Me for my indiscretions


Know that I always loved you

Know that I will always love you


Take me to the river

Dump me in the water

Relieve me of all of my sins


No I haven't been good

No I haven't been great

But please don't hate

Me for my indiscretions
