Here are the official lyrics to the title track, "This River"

I stare at a picture but there's nothing for it
I pull on the bottle and watch this river roll on by
Trying to find purpose trying to see meaning
Trying to make sense of the nonsense that I've called my life

Cause only this river can bear me to safety
Only this river can bear me away

See them all work and play there on the other bank
Warm in their houses while I face my cold alone
Guess I've been drinking away to keep the wolves of my mind at bay
but if you run you die I'm just too tired to care

Cause only this river can bear me to safety
Only this river can bear me away
I feel Her flowing, flowing right through me
I hear Her whispers drowning my words
Only this river can save me from myself

Where did my soul go?
Where did my spirit hide?
Why won't they rescue me from the pain in my mind?

Only this river in all of Her glory
Only this river can bear me away

Only this river

He tells a story, of all the glory
He leads a way, he leads me on
To my Home In The Sky....  To my Home In The Sky
There's no reason why, 'cause Heaven knows

I'm that moment when you finally let go...
