Deep River

Written By: Benton Crane
Album: Midnight

There's a river coming to wash

Wash away all I've got

It's gonna wash away my house

And my identity

But won't you please wash away

The sorrow and the agony

I beg you please, please

I'm begging on my knees

I know who I am, who I'm not

And who I want to be

I've tried to escape my sorrow

And escape my pain

I'm standing in the sun

But it feels like I'm standing in the rain

This river is driving me mad

It's driving me insane

(Chorus)

Deep river, deep river

Where did you go?

Deep river, deep river

How did you know?

Deep water below my feet

And I can hardly swim

Watched from a distance

But not a hand from the fisherman

The fisherman cast his line out

From the dry, dry shore

He knew my name, he knew my face

He's seen me here before

(Chorus)

Deep river, deep river

Where did you go?

Deep river, deep river

How did you know?
