By The River - By Carroll Bryant

BY THE RIVER - By Carroll Bryant 


I'm gonna lay
Gonna lay me down by the river
Raise my hands and then shed my skin
It's okay
To be good enough for decent 
I forgive myself for all my sins 

It so happens that life gets so little 
Before it gets too big
When you're young 
You only live to reach the middle 
Because you never think you will ever make it to the end 

That's the sickness
Being invincible 
Being all you can
 
I'm gonna lay
Gonna lay me down by the river
Raise my hands and then shed my skin
It's okay
To be good enough for decent 
I forgive myself for all my sins

Life's lemonade is made with imperfect lemons 
Bitter to the taste so swallow what you can
Mysteries and magic
You hold it in your hands
Best to be gentle and a gentleman 

We're only human
Woman to woman 
And man unto man 

I'm gonna lay
Gonna lay me down by the river
Raise my hands and then shed my skin
It's okay
To be good enough for decent 
I forgive myself for all my sins 

A team of wild horses couldn't pull me away 
Drag me away from the likes of you
So, listen closely
I will be your hero and I will be your fool 

That's the sickness
Being invincible 
Being all that you can 

We're only human
Woman to woman
And man unto man 

I'm gonna lay
Gonna lay me down by the river
Raise my hands and then shed my skin
It's okay
To be good enough for decent 
I forgive myself for all my sins
