Lyrics

Been traveling these wide roads for so long
My heart's been far from you
10,000 miles gone

Oh, I wanna come near and give you
Every part of me
But there's blood on my hands
And my lips aren't clean

In my darkness I remember
Momma's words reoccur to me
"Surrender to the good Lord
and he'll wipe your slate clean"

Take me to your river
I wanna go
I'll go on
Take me to your river
I wanna know

Tip me in your smooth waters
I'm going as a man with many crimes
Come up for air
As my sins flow down the Jordan

Oh, I wanna come near and give you
Every part of me
But there's blood on my hands
And my lips aren't clean

Take me to your river
I wanna go
I'll go on
Take me to your river
I wanna know

I wanna go, wanna go, wanna go
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

Ooh, take me to your river
I wanna go
Oh, Lord, please let me know
Take me to your river
I wanna know
