Greenleaf – The Rivers Lullaby


I’m not gonna lie, I listened this at 1.5x and like it better.

Artist: Greenleaf
Album: Hear The Rivers
Year: 2018

Lyrics:
And Lord, the fingers all point at me
What is it that they want to see
I try to find my way below
But the river’s coming down on me

And Lord can’t you just let me go
Even if they’re all in woe
Or tell them that I can’t be found
Cause the river’s coming down on me

And no, it didn’t go the way they said
In fact it wasn’t even great
And with her blood running from my palms
I let the river bring her home

And Lord, can’t you find a way to see
I really just set her free
And now she’s waiting down below
Hear the river’s coming down on me

The voices are faiding out
The silence in her eyes

Oh in trembling waters
The river’s lullaby
Figting
Figting
For her life

And Lord, I lit a match and let it be
Like the flames would just set me free
And now I’m standing in the fire
While the roof is coming down on me

And Lord, I didn’t know that they were there
The flame wasn’t me to share
But now we’re standing in the pyre
While all hell is coming down on me

The voices are fading out
The silence in her eyes

Oh in trembling waters
The river’s lullaby
Fighting
Fighting
For her life

The fists are tied
They can see the fire
Once again

Water rise
There’s no more lies
This is the end

Hang them high
It’s he death and I
Once again

Water rise
There’s no more lies

Came from the shadows, came in the night
I’m going to have what is mine

Your final tears, will fill your eyes
Cause this is goodbye

Came from the shadows, came in the night
I’m going to have what is mine

A grim wide smile, it’s you and I
And yes, this is goodbye

So come on over now
So come on over now
Oh hear the river cry

So come on over now
So come on over now
Oh hear the lullaby

Oh hear the river cry
Oh hear the lullaby
