The Holy River - Prince

Lets go down 2 the holy river
If we drown then well be delivered
U can still see the picture upon the wall
One eye staring at nothing at all
The other one trying 2 focus through all your tears
U can try and try but theres nothin 2 hide
U cant run from yourself and whats inside
U got 2 find the answers 2 the questions that u most fear

So over and over u ask your soul
Whyd u come down 2 a world so cold?
And the voice inside says 2night the truth will be told

U surrounded yourself with all the wrong faces
Spending your time in all the wrong places
Puttin your faith in things that only make u cry
People say they love u when they wanna help
But how can they when u cant help yourself?
The more they say they love u, the more u just wanna die
So here we go again, the self analysis
Have another glass of port and uh.. forget this
The bands playin at the club 2night and theyre bound 2 groove

There u are, u think ure high
U cant ask yourself cuz ud only lie
If u had a dollar 4 every time u tried

U cant call nobody cuz theyll tell u straight up
Come and make love when u really hate em
Relationships based on the physical are over and done
Theyre over and done (theyre over and done)
Ud rather have fun
With only one, with only one
Only one... one (one)

And then it hit cha like a fist on a wall
Who gave u life when there was none at all?
Who gave the sun permission 2 rise up everyday? (ooh, oh yes)
Let me tell it (gon)
If u ask God 2 love u longer
Every breath u take will make u stronger
Keepin u happy (happy) and proud 2 call his name (gon and say it)
Jesus (jesus)

And over and over u ask your soul
Whyd u come down 2 a world so cold?
And the voice inside said 2night the truth will be told
And this time I was listening, hear me

Lets go down 2 the holy river
If we drown then well be delivered (yes we will)
If we dont then well never see the light (no)
If u die before u try
Ull have 2 come back and face the light (oh yes)
When u believe it, u got a good reason 2 cry (oh my, my)

So I went on down 2 the holy river
I called my girl and told her I had something 2 give her
I asked her 2 marry me and she said yes, I cried
Oh, that night I drowned in her tears and mine
And.. and instead of a glass of sorrow and wine
Looking back yall, I dont miss nothing except the time
And when I see that picture upon the wall
The one eye staring at nothing at all
My eyes trying 2 focus but these are much different tears
Oh, yes they are
Lets go down 2 the holy river {x3}

Lets go down 2 the holy river {x3}
