The Cains – Down To The Water lyrics

Ooooo you loved a liar
Tightrope walking on a thin wire
Ooooo you loved a stranger
My deception was a game changer
I'm sorry for what I've done to you
I'm sorry

Take me down to the water
Wash my stains in the river
These hands were not made to carry sins
Oh my past it does a'haunt me
But shame can't live where love has brought me
Tear the page out of your book
And write again

Oooo I'd give me money
Just to pay off all the demons honey
You made me your hero
I fell from grace and had nowhere to go but

Down to the water
Wash my stains in the river
These hands were not made to carry sins
Oh my past it does a'haunt me
But shame can't live where love has brought me
Tear the page out of your book
And write again

I've got a bag of rocks and I will take them to the Jordan
Leave them to remind me that the debt has been repaid
I've got the lock and key that will free me from these burdens
And carry not these heavy chains with me to the grave

And I'm sorry for what I've done to you

So take me down to the water
Wash my stains in the river
These hands were not made to carry sins
Oh my past it does a'haunt me
But shame can't live where love has brought me
Tear the page out of your book
And write again
