THE RIVER

Written by Delta Goodrem, David Hodges & Steven Solomon

(Preacher, take me down)

(Take me down the river, river)

 

It’s not what I had planned when I was walking in

I didn’t know what I’d see

Was stepping through the door, the clothes were on the floor

It was something like a bad dream

And in just a blink, before I could think

I didn’t know what happened

All I know is this

How could he commit a crime against our passion

The moment that I saw them kiss

I knew it had to end like this

Preacher, take me down

Take me down to the river, river

I couldn’t help myself

When I saw him with her, with her

I took that loaded gun

Forgive what I have done

So preacher, take me down

Take me down to the river, river

(River, river, river, river)

The writing’s on the wall, but it was his fault

How could anybody blame me

I swear to tell the truth, and if you only knew

I swear you’d do the same thing

If you give me one more chance

I’ll never shoot him down again

Preacher, take me down

Take me down to the river, river

I couldn’t help myself

When I saw him with her, with her

I took that loaded gun

Forgive what I have done

So preacher, take me down

Take me down to the river, river

(Take me down)

(Take me down)

(Take me down)

(River, river)

(Take me down)

Preacher, take me down

Take me down to the river, river

I couldn’t help myself

When I saw him with her, with her

I took that loaded gun

Forgive what I have done

So preacher, take me down

Take me down to the river, river

(River, river, river, river)

I took that loaded gun

Forgive what I have done

So preacher, take me down

Take me down the river, river

1. The River (Miles Walker Mix)
Single  

YOU AND YOU ALONE

Written by Delta Goodrem, Stuart Crichton, Brian McFaden & Tommy Lee James

Cross my heart and hope to die that I’ll be true

No one else could steal me away

From this moment on I will take care of you

Standing here with confidence, I’d say

That nothing could ever come between us

And nothing means more to me than you

 

Cause you are brighter than the lights over New York City

You are my hiding place when the world’s not pretty

And I swear that I will always love you like I do

You and you alone

 

Find a penny, make a wish

For both of us

Take my hand and lead me anywhere

I’m giving everything I have, is that enough?

And when you need me, I’m already there

Cause all that I know is that the time is precious

And I wanna spend my time with you

 

Cause you are brighter than the lights over New York City

You are my hiding place when the world’s not pretty

And I swear that I will always love you like I do

You and you alone

Oh oh alone

 

‘Cause nothing could ever come between us

And nothing means more to me than you

 

Cause you are brighter than the lights over New York City

You are my hiding place when the world’s not pretty

And I swear that I will always love you like I do

You and you alone

Oh oh you and you alone

You and you alone

 
Lyrics
