Wicked Waters

This must be where I lose it all, darling
Throw myself into wicked waters
This must be where I lose it all, darling
Throw myself into wicked waters
This must be where I lose it all, darling
Throw myself into wicked waters
 
Well, I’m tired of feeling guilty
Just for wanting a little bit more (a new foundation)a new foundation
I work until I fall down, baby
Then I work a little bit more
When I was just a small boy
Oh, I wanted it all (a new foundation) a new foundation
And now I would be happier
To just be standing tall
 
My heart is feeling empty
My legs are feeling weak
My heads lower than yesterday
I stumble when I speak
I’m afraid I’ll never be nothing
Then I remember James (y'all remember him)
Oh, James!, Oh, James!, Oh, James!
 
I am what I am
I’ll make it on this run
I’m a new beginning
I will learn to love
I am what I am
I’ll make it on this run
I’m a new beginning
I will learn to love
I will learn to love
 
This must be where I lose it all, darling
Throw myself into wicked waters
This must be where I lose it all, darling
Throw myself into wicked waters
 
You woke me from a stagnant bliss
To say we had a child (a new beginning) a new beginning
We’ll raise this one the right way honey
We’ll raise him to be wild
We’ll teach him ‘bout our brokenness
And the things we wish we knew (a new beginning) a new beginning
He’ll stare at us with spiteful eyes
And make those mistakes too
 
My heart is feeling empty
My legs are feeling weak
My heads lower than yesterday
Oh, I stumble when I speak
Oh no, I’ll never be nothing
Then I remember James (y'all remember him)
Oh, James! Oh, James!
 
Oh, I am what I am
I’ll make it on this run
I’m a new beginning
I will learn to love
Oh, I am what I am
I’ll make it on this run
I’m a new beginning
I will learn to love
 
I WILL LEARN TO LOVE!
