Sometimes I go to the river, just to watch it flow
It ripples and it dances, and I don't know where it goes
You brought me to the edge, but I held you to the ground
I thought I knew better, than to let you in the water

Baby it's time to take your hand and leave behind what I know
Baby it's time to follow you into the river and let go of the shore

Once I thought I knew how everything should be
I would damn up the river, blinded by what I wanted to see

Maybe it's time to take your hand and leave behind what I know
Maybe it's time to follow you into the river and let go of the shore

I tried to change you, I didn't understand
But now all I wanna do is get down on my knees and thank you

Baby it's time to take your hand and leave behind what I know
Baby it's time to follow you into the river and let go of the shore

Let go of the shore
