#musicmonday Down to the River by Ben Caplan

Lyrics

I went down to the river
Blowing out onto the sea
On my way to the ocean
Let the spirit swallow me
I got low down in the water
I let the current guide my bones
I got 9 kinds of trouble
I’m just trying to find my way home
Oh 20 some years of living
And a thousand wasted days
I have loved a lot of women
Many times I’ve gone wrong ways
And I came down to the water
A dip to cleanse my soul
They keep telling me that I’m just a babe
But baby why do I feel so old
This is the verge of a breakthrough
It’s a fine line that cannot be bent
And I felt like a river ran dry
But I don’t know where all the rainwater went
And I believe that we are all dead or dying
But I see different in the blue light
There is no such thing as a dawn or dusk
It’s daylight until it is not
You gotta against the dimming
You gotta run to the west
You gotta rage against the dying of the light
Live for the moment that’s left
You gotta fight against your demons
You gotta run to the west
You gotta rage against the dying of the light
Live for the moment that’s left
Cause there is no such thing as a dying man
We are alive till the moment we’re dead
A dying man is just a living man
Who hasn’t run out of his last bit of breath
I went down to the river
Blowing out onto the sea
On my way to the ocean
Let the spirit swallow me
I got low down in the water
I let the current guide my bones
I got 9 kinds of trouble
I’m just trying to find my way home
Find my way home
Find my way home
Find my way home

As always, a nod to Drew at Sarcastic Book Geek for the #MusicMonday idea.
