about

"With twangs of emotion and exhilaratingly deep syncopated rhythms, “river” will take you on the ride of your life, packing a musical punch so haunting and ethereal you’ll be speechless for days." (WONDERLAND Magazine)

“river” is the namesake of a masterpiece written by American novelist Flannery O’Connor. Much of the symbolism within the song is in reference to her renowned story “River”. This song is about redemption and all of the pain that comes with it before one is truly set free.

lyrics

Official lyrics for "river"

Intro:
I’m gonna sing my way down to the river
I’m gonna pray that everything will be okay

Verse 1:
I need them all to believe me
Believe me that I’m gonna be free
Flow, flow over me gently
Let me feel the rush across my skin

Chorus:
Yeah, take me back to the river
Let it sink down, deep into my soul
Cuz I see the water above me
Yet hear a voice fading away

AMEN

Verse 2:
I’m gonna throw them all into an ash-tray
And, then I’m gonna blow them all away
I’m gonna run down the steps of yesterday
Peace will soon be near, burdens astray

Chorus:
Take me back to the river
Let it sink down, deep into my soul
I see the water above me
Yet hear a voice fading away

AMEN

Outro:
I'll sing my way down to the river
And, I pray that everything will be okay

Take me down to that river
There’s nowhere else I’d rather be
Oh river, please wash over me
Oh river, please set me free
