"I'm Ready" as written by and Tracy L Chapman....
I want to wake up and know where I'm going
Say I'm ready
Say I'm ready

I want to go where the rivers are overflowing and
I'll be ready
I'll be ready

I'm ready to let the rivers wash over me
I'm ready to let the rivers wash over me

If the waters can redeem me
I'm ready
I'm ready

I'm ready to let the rivers wash over me
I'm ready to let the rivers wash over me

I want to wake up
I want to know where I'm going
I want to go where the rivers are over-flowing

I'm ready to let the rivers wash over me
I'm ready
I'm ready

    General CommentI agree with you pr. Letting the river wash over you- cleanse your body mind and spirit, redirect and heal from whatever it is that was cleansed.

    General CommentI think this song is talking about the need to have a direction in life. The human need to know where we are heading to and what is after "death" for example.

    General CommentThis song has a very simple idea, Change for the better. Whether it be Religion, getting off drugs, life after death, moving on... its just very easy listening and i love that steel slide guitar in it!
