lyrics

Gather up the clothes and walk on down
'cause the rains are coming.

Wash ‘em in the river and listen for that sound
of thunder rolling into town.

Hanging all the shirts up on the line
'cause the sun it will not make them dry.

Chorus
The water’s gonna rise,
so close your eyes and wash away.
The current will current decide
so close your eyes and wash away.

The clouds begin to gather up in the sky,
and I’m smelling of all the trees as the wind blows by.

So I open up the windows and let it all in,
gonna let it blow me back to where it begins.

Then the rain starts to fall like it’s never gonna end,
the river is a wound that ain’t never gonna mend.

Chorus
The water’s gonna rise,
so close your eyes and wash away.
The current will current decide
so close your eyes and wash away.

I’ve been swimming for a year but there’s no dry land,
just the roof of a barn where I can barely stand.

I’m crying up to heaven yeah I’m tearing my throat,
for just a handful of sleep in the belly of a boat.

I’m strong enough to fight up against the flow,
I’m strong enough to know when it’s time to let go.
