Song Meaning
Verse 1
Been traveling these wide roads for so long
My heart's been far from you
Ten-thousand miles gone
Verse 2
Oh, I wanna come near and give ya
Every part of me
But there's blood on my hands
And my lips aren't clean
Verse 3
In my darkness I remember
Momma's words reoccur to me
"Surrender to the good Lord
And he'll wipe your slate clean"
Verse 4
Take me to your river
I wanna go
Oh, go on
Take me to your river
I wanna know
Verse 5
Tip 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
Verse 6
Oh, I wanna come near and give ya
Every part of me
But there's blood on my hands
And my lips aren't clean
Verse 7
Take me to your river
I wanna go
Go on,
Take me to your river
I wanna know
Verse 8
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
Verse 9
Take me to your river
I wanna go
Lord, please let me know
Take me to your river
I wanna know
