Flood me Like a River, Sir – by J.P. MCQUILLAN

Flood me like a river, sir
Take it all away.

 

Flood me like a river, sir.

To another night

To some other day -

 

You know I only have eyes for you

Mural so warm

Fill me up -

 

Take it all away

 

The pursuit of life.

The search for God.

Darker though; the quest for nod -

 

Take it all away.

 

Flood me like a river, sir.

To another night

To some other day -

 

And with your warm blanket

 

You take me all away.
