to the river lyrics – john mellencamp

(janis ian/john vezner/john mellencamp)
they are master and slaves
we are sunlight and shadow
all roads to the river
i am lost, i am saved
i’m beloved and betrayed
all roads to the river
chorus
and the river runs wide
and the river runs deep
and i spit in the eye
of safe company
when i dive right down
to the undertow
well, the deeper i drown
lord, the higher i’ll go
i am whispering dreams
i am howling recolutions
all roads to the river
i am valentine sweet
and i live in this nightmare
all roads to the river
chorus
this is nothing like we planned
that’s the way it’s always been
all roads to the river
i have hated and i have loved
i have prayed and i have sinned
all roads to the river
chorus
