Delta Goodrem – The River Lyrics

Preacher, take me down
Take me down the river, river

[Verse 1]
It’s not what I had planned when I was walking in
I didn’t know what I’d see stepping through the door
Their clothes were on the floor
Was something like a bad dream
[Verse 2]
And then in just a blink, before I could think
I didn’t know what happened
All I knew was this
How could he commit a crime against our passion?

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, the moment that I saw them kiss
Oh, I knew it had to end like this

[Chorus]
Preacher, take me down
Take me down 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 the river, river
(river, river)
(river, river)

[Verse 3]
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

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, if you give me one more chance
Oh, I’ll never shoot him down again so

[Chorus]
Preacher, take me down
Take me down 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 the river, river

[Bridge]
Take me down
Take me down
Take me down
River, river
Take me down

[Chorus]
Preacher, take me down
Take me down 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 the river, river
(river, river)
(river, river)

[Chorus]
I took that loaded gun
Forgive what I have done
So preacher, take me down
Take me down the river, river
