"River Rise" as written by and India Arie/ruff Simpson....
There was always
A power I could feel
It was guidance to tell me the way to go

But nowadays I feel like can't hear that voice
I've been flying blind
I need you to come and be my eyes. (be my eyes)

River Rise
Carry me back home
(I cannot remember the way)
River rise
Carry me back home
(I surrender today)

I was always
A charmed flower child
I would sit for hours
And listen to the sky

But nowadays I feel like I don't have that choice
I've been looking down in desperation
I need you to be my inspiration yeah
(My inspiration)

River rise
Carry me back home
(I cannot remember the way)
River rise
Carry me back home
(I surrender today)

I bow down
And I humble myself
I can't do this
Lord I need your help
All the material things
They feel like chains
If you're not here beside me
You're the reason I see

(Help me to remember the way)
I surrender

Help me to remember
Only you can show me
(Only you can show me the way)
I surrender
(I surrender today)
You are the only way
Lord, I need you.
