Ibeyi – River Lyrics

[Chorus:]
Come to your river1
I will come to your2 river
I will come to your river
Come to your river
(Wash my soul)
I will come to your river
(Wash my soul)
I will come to your river
Wash my soul again3

[Verse 1:]
Carry away my dead leaves4
Let me baptize my soul with the help of your waters5
Sink my pains and complains
Let the river take them, river drown them6
My ego and my blame7
Let me baptize my soul with the help of your waters
Those all means are so ashamed
Let the river take them, river drown them

[Chorus:]
Come to your river
I will come to your river
I will come to your river
Come to your river
(Wash my soul)
I will come to your river
(Wash my soul)
I will come to your river
Wash my soul again

[Verse 2:]
Carry away my old leaves
Let me baptize my soul with the help of your waters
Sink my pains and complains
Let the river take them, river drown them
My ego and my blame
Let me baptize my soul with the help of your waters
Those all means so ashamed
Let the river take them, river drown them

[Chorus:]
Come to your river
I will come to your river
I will come to your river
Come to your river
(Wash my soul)
I will come to your river
(Wash my soul)
I will come to your river
Wash my soul again
