Down upon my knees, kneeling down in prayer
praying for dear life, praying to be free
of this busy world, of this busy life
down upon my knees, begging to be free

Standing at the counter, counting out my change
change is for the better, they say, but I’m begging just to please, please
please set me free of this busy world
down upon my knees begging to be free

Bring me some water from the river wide
I think I can see now to the other side
bring me some water, a ray of hope
sing to me softly as I walk home

There’s a ringing in my ears, so easy to forget
father’s are also sons, no simple arithmetic
there’s a thirsting on my lips, there’s an aching in my heart
bright light on the horizon, been there from the start

Bring me some water from the river wide…..

Knowing when to die, like a firefly
blinking off-and-on, on a summer’s night
knowing when to die, like a skipping stone
at the water’s edge, slipping out of sight

Bring me some water from the river wide…..

He’s got the whole world in his hands
he’s got blood on his brow
there’s a bright light on the horizon
I think I see him now

Bring me some water from the river wide…..
