If it's water that will cleanse
I will take you down to the river bend
and we'll jump right in
let the current bind and overwhelm us
and see the golden lights, once or twice

when we're weeds and ash
when we're a finite silver dress
over rocks and cracks
who will know our shoulder blades and boulders

don't say I didn't try
I tried, your grief has made me blind

I am talking about the lonesome
how they walk over graves always
I am talking about the lonesome
the way those paper flowers fade
I am talking about forgiveness
and they do it away with shame

no more graves
no more graves
no more graves
How you like it now on the shores of Jordan
How you like it now on the shores of Jordan
How you like it now on the shores of Jordan
Children come home out of the canyon

no more graves
no more graves
no more graves
How you like it now on the shores of Jordan
How you like it now on the shores of Jordan
How you like it now on the shores of Jordan
Children come home out of the canyon
