Lyrics

Love come to me
Here is the key
Open me up
Do you see
The light it's here inside of me
The dirty water will clean
The sun will burn up
The wound will heal
The dark will turn to light
The ashes into dust will reveal

You thought you knew me
But you didn't really try
Either let me go to the River
Or watch me die

There's something in the waterIt said my nameA woman all aloneNo one came

But the rain it comes
It floods the streets
Her cries can not be heard
The push and pull
The dark will turn to light
The ashes into dust
The daughter you gave up
Will be loved
