Grace Potter And The Nocturnals – Nothing But The Water (I) lyrics

I have seen what man can do
When the evil lives inside of you
Many are the weak
And the strong are few
But with the water
We'll start anew

Well, won't you take me down to the levy, take me down to the stream, take my down to the water,
We're gonna wash our souls clean, take me down to the river, take me down to the lake,
Yes, we'll all go together, we're gonna do it for the good lord's sake

I have fallen so many times
For the devil's sweet, cunning rhymes
And this old world
Has brought me pain
But there's hope
For me again

Well, won't you take me down to the levy, take me down to the stream, take my down to the water,
We're gonna wash our souls clean, take me down to the river, take me down to the lake,
Yes, we'll all go together, we're gonna do it for the good lord's sake

Tried my hand at the bible, tried my hand at prayer, but now nothing but the water is gonna bring my soul to bare,
But now nothing but the water is gonna bring my soul to bare

    I turn 58 in september. This song speaks to me because I'm leaving the hellhole I've lived in all my life in the midwest and moving to florida in december. That move will be my way to "start anew", to leave my old, depressing life and start a new life. The last stanza really says what I've thought for a long while. "tried my hand at the bible, tried my hand at prayer, but now nothing but the water is gonna bring my soul to bare". I was born in maryland and spent the first 8 years of my life in rhode island, only blocks from the beach. For the last 50 years, the only water I've seen has been nasty lake water, yet I had to get into it because for some reason, floating on water, feeling so light, calms me, and at times, makes me feel a little spiritual. In december i'll have the gulf of mexico to ease my mental and physical pain, and my soul. I've been to panama city beach a couple of times, one of which resulted in a wild dolphin jumping up not 20 feet from me. That was a very spiritual experience for me. Come december, i'll be able to go to the beach anytime I want, any season, and bring this tired soul to a place of peace, the ocean.
    Thank you for helping me think just how much I can relate to this song and to share my thoughts.
