Well I think I'll go
Down to the river
And let that water
Wash over me

Yes I think I'll go
Down to the river
And let that water
Wash over me

Coz it can't be long
You know it can't be long
Until my lord remembers me

Well I think I'll go
Into the forest
And let that darkness
Rush over me

Yes I think I'll go
Into the forest
And let that darkness
Rush over me

Coz it can't be long
You know it can't be long
Until my lord remembers me

Well I think I'll go
Into the mountains
And let that cold wind
Cut right through me

Yes I think I'll go
High into the mountains
And let that cold wind
Cut right through me

Coz it can't be long
You know it can't be long
Until my lord remembers me

Well I think I'll go
Deep into the valley
And let that green grass
Grow over me

Yes I think I'll go
Deep into the valley
And let that green grass
Grow over me

Coz it can't be long
It really can't be long
Until my lord remembers me

No it can't be long
I hope it won't be long
Until my lord remembers me

    General CommentI think this song is supposed to be ironic. The singer has lost faith in the idea of God and has resigned herself to giving it, ironically claiming that it won't until God remembers her. The idea is interesting because God, being loving and all-seeing shouldn't really 'forget'
