Meet Me at the River

Your peace is a river, I’m swimming to shore
You threw me an apple, I’m chewing on the core
I’m treading water, I can see the horizon line
Keep my head up, fighting for what’s mine
With a bit and a bridle, you can’t make me drink
Hold me under now, I’m starting to sink


Meet me at the river
Meet me at the river
Meet me at the river
Down by the riverside


The wind in my hair, it’s your breath on my face
Dancing through a field of Queen Anne’s lace
Dig a hole in the ground, that’s where my rest lies
Mix up some mud and smear it on my eyes
Take a bath in the river, scrub my rotten skin
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, dunk away my sin


Meet me at the river
Meet me at the river
Meet me at the river
Down by the riverside


Fighting the current, I’m trying to get out
Your peace is a river, I’m choking on my doubt
My last mouthful of bread, I spit it up at the sky
Your body and your blood, even you had to die
The mud is your grace, I’m slipping back in
I can’t fight anymore, I give up, I give in


Meet me at the river
Meet me at the river
Meet me at the river
Down by the riverside
