The River



As I walk through the valley of the shadow of LA the footsteps that were next to me have gone there separate ways Iíve seen enough now to know that beautiful things donít always stay that way iíve done enough now to know that beautiful place isnít everything they say I heard that evil comes disguised like a city of angels I walking toward the light
Reff : Baptized in the river I see a vision of my life and I want to be delivered in the city was a sinner iíve done a lot of things wrong but I swear iím a believer like a prodigal son I was out on my own and I got to find my way back home baptized in the river iím delivered Iím delivered
you're from a small town you're gonna grow up fast underneath these lights down in hollywood on the boulevard the dead comes back to life to the praying mother and the worried father let your children go if they come back theyíll come on stronger and if they donít you know
they say that evil comes disguised like a city of angels iím walking towards the light
back Reff:
[Chorus]
Baptized in the river (on my own)baptized in the river (on my own)I want to be delivered(on my own) (on my own)baptized in the river (on my own)I want to be deliveredbaptized in the river (on my own)I want to be deliveredbaptized in the river (on my own)I want to be deliveredI confess Iím a sinner I see a vision of my life and I want to be delivered !!
