You keep closing your eyes
Trying to ignore it
Hoping it'll disappear
Face to face with your own Goliath
At least that's how it looks from here
All the stones you can throw
Won't scare it away

And pacing back and forth
Trying to think of something
To get you to the other side
The path of your fear
Runs in all directions
When you're looking for a place to hide
But you know the one you've
Gotta take

[Chorus:]
There's no way around a river, baby
Wade on in the deep
And when you can't go any further
Hold on to me
And if it pulls you under
I'll be there too
There's no way around a river, baby
It's just something you've gotta
Go through

The troubles you face
The wounds you're protecting
The sins that you wrestle with
We all have our share we'd like to
Get over
Sometimes there's just no bridge
And the very thing that makes
Us afraid
Is just what we need to wash it away

[Repeat Chorus]

That's the way it is
So just wade on in
I'll see you on the other side
No way around it
No way around a river, baby
Wade on in, wade on in

And if it pulls you under
I'll be there too
There's no way around a river, baby
It's just something you've gotta go through
Oh yes it is, yes it is
Oh, no way around it
No way around a river, baby
Wade on in, wade on in - yeah
