"The River"


I was born by the river
That my momma cried when my daddy died
Maybe that was the reason I didn't get the attention
That I was needing to touch cause
I reminded her of him too much
Could'ntunderstand what she felt so I hated her, yea
'Til I was old enough to hate myself
And I felt like a slave down in South Carolina
Cursing the vagina that gave life to me oh
I could'ntsee what I had the potential to be
'Til I got down on my knees and begged God
To please take control of my life today

[Chorus:]
Cause there's no way
There's no way, no way, no way
I can do it on my own
And no matter how my friends try to console
They can never never know
What I go through
So I turn my heart over completely
To you, yes Lord, I do...

I was born in a hurry
Cause my momma had to be back to work at 8:30
Maybe that was the reason there was always this feeling
That she was rushing herself
She didn't even have the time to spend loving herself
Let alone, someone else
So I hated her, yea
Cause I loved her, yea
And I cried, yea
Like the Klu Klux Klan at the Million Man March
Partially broke my spirit, partially broke my heart
I could'ntstart to be what I had the potential to be
'Til I got down on my knees and begged God to please
Take control of my life today

[Chorus:]
Cause there's no way
There's no way, no way, no way
I can do it on my own
And no matter how my friends try to console
They can never never know
What I go through
So I turn my heart over completely
To you, yes Lord, I do...
