If I Lay Down In The River

This song is by Deadman and appears on the album Take Up Your Mat And Walk (2010).

If I lay down in the river, will it make me clean?
If I lay down in the river, will it make me clean?
I drink deeper from the healing fount
I fill my cup and lift it to my mouth
If I lay down in the river, will it make me clean?

And if I should lay me down
To the water to be cleansed
I'm hoping that one day soon
You and I can make amends

If I lay down in the water, will it make me whole?
If I lay down in the water, will it make me whole?
Now will it take my pain away?
Will it help me see the shining day?
If I lay down in the water, will it make me whole?

And if I should lay me down
To the water to be cleansed
I'm hoping that one day soon
You and I can make amends
If I lay down
If I lay down

If I rise up from the mire, will you take my hand?
If I rise up from the mire, will you take my hand?
Will you make my foothold strong?
Will you help me when I'm feeling wronged?
If I rise up from the mire, will you take my hand?
And help me understand?

That if should I one day go
To the river's edge to find
That what I was looking for
Should somehow be alive
If I lay down
If I lay down

If I lay down in the river
In the river, in the river, if I lay down in the river, will it make me whole?
If I lay down in the river
In the river, in the river, if I lay down in the river, will it make me whole?

Down in the water
Will it make me whole?
