River
Leon Bridges Lyrics


Been traveling these wide roads for so long
My heart's been far from you
Ten-thousand miles gone

Oh, I wanna come near and give ya
Every part of me
But there's blood on my hands
And my lips are unclean

In my darkness I remember
Momma's words reoccur to me
"Surrender to the good Lord
And he'll wipe your slate clean"

Take me to your river
I wanna go
Oh, go
Take me to your river
I wanna know

Dip me in your smooth waters, I go in
As a man with many crimes
Come up for air
As my sins flow down the Jordan

Oh, I wanna come near and give ya
Every part of me
But there's blood on my hands
And my lips are unclean

Take me to your river
I wanna go
Oh, go
Take me to your river
I wanna know

I wanna go, wanna go, wanna go
I wanna know, wanna know, wanna know
Wanna go, wanna go, wanna go
Wanna know, wanna know, wanna know
Wanna go, wanna go, wanna go (yeah)
Wanna know, wanna know, wanna know

Hoo, ohh, take me to your river
I wanna go
Lord, please let me know
Take me to your river
I wanna know

No matter the path you’ve walked, the path you continue, or where the path is headed.

No matter the problems you’ve faced, the problems you currently face, or the problems you will face.

No matter the mistakes of your past, no matter the mistakes you currently make, and no matter the mistakes you will make.

Irregardless of trouble of any and all kinds.

God will always love, care and forgive you. God will always be there for you in both your darkest and brightest times. There is no greater power than his love.

Been traveling these wide roads for so long
My heart's been far from you
Ten-thousand miles gone

Oh, I wanna come near and give
Every part of me
But there is blood on my hands
And my lips are unclean

In my darkness I remember
Momma's words reoccur to me
"Surrender to the good Lord
And he'll wipe your slate clean"

Take me to your river
I wanna go
Oh, go on
Take me to your river
I wanna know

Tip me in your smooth water
I go in
As a man with many crimes
Come up for air
As my sins flow down the Jordan

Oh, I wanna come near and give
Every part of me
But there is blood on my hands
And my lips are unclean

Take me to your river
I wanna go
Go on
Take me to your river
I wanna know

I wanna go, wanna go, wanna go
I wanna know, wanna know, wanna know
Wanna go, wanna go, wanna go
Wanna know, wanna know, wanna know
Wanna go, wanna go, wanna go
Wanna know, wanna know, wanna know

Take me to your river

Talk about irony. My Son Shawn, took a hand full of pills, walked to the River, jumped in and drowned. This happened January 12th, 2019. I was actually looking for a different song about the River and ran into this one....This touched me so much!. I wonder if my Son had been listening to this song, because this is the kind of music he listened to. My beautiful Shawn. You Guys would have loved him.

I’m sorry for your loss. My son, River Jude, passed away in his sleep a month ago. He was 24 days old and the pain and longing for him will never go away . . . I love you so much, baby . . . My autoplay just landed on this song that I had never heard.

For me and for now, I just need to keep him close to me by enjoying beautiful things like this song and remembering all the good and love we had and will always have. My words might be a bit jarbled ;) Sending love and good vibes your way.

Diana.. you have the name of a Goddess, the name of my mother. Just by that I know you raised an amazing, loving son as my mom has. I have been plagued with depression, and trauma and I just send all my love to you and your family.

Michael bronco
