  • Oh my god
    Please help me, knee deep in the river tryin' to get clean
    He says wash your hands, get out the stains
    But you best believe, boy, there's hell to pay
    Yeah you best believe, boy, there's hell to pay, sayin'
    Come on

    Oh my god
    Please help me, waist deep in the river, can you hear my plea?
    He says, son, you come like a beggar in the street
    You might make it, boy, but by the skin of your teeth
    You might make it, boy, but by the skin of your teeth, sayin'

    I rambled with the worst of them
    Fell in love with a harlequin
    Saw the darkest hearts of men
    And I saw myself starin' back again
    And I saw myself starin' back again

    Oh my god
    Please help me, neck deep in the river screamin' for relief
    He says, it's mine to give, but it's yours to choose
    You're gonna sink or swim, you're gonna learn the truth
    No matter what you do you're gonna learn the truth sayin'

    Ate the bread that once was stone
    Fell from a cliff, never broke a bone
    Bowed down to get the kings overthrown
    And I'm all alone and the fire grows
    And I'm all alone and the fire grows

    La la la la la la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la la la la la

    La la la la la la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la la la la la

    Swing sweet charity(La la la la la la la la la la la)
    Take what's left of me(La la la la la la la la la la la)
    A new beginning or is this the end?(La la la la la la la la la la la)
    Swing sweet Seraphim(La la la la la la la la la la la)
    Take me back again(La la la la la la la la la la la)
    Or watch me make the messes of men(La la la la la la la la la la la) Lyrics © OBO APRA/AMCOS
