Listen to the rain come down on the roof
Someone needs a miracle, and I'm the livin' proof
Drink, light a cigarette, and let me count the ways
But I can hear a whisper in our haunted house these days

She won't set me free, she won't let me go, she won't leave my soul alone

She just leads me to the river, as my heart goes down in flames
'Til she comes back to me, I'll have to pray for rain
Wrap yourself around me, only you can pull me through
Through this desert that I call my heart, I'll pray for rain to you

To you, to you
I can see the firelight reflected on her skin
She was smooth as alabast, with a taste of salt and sin
Slave to a servant, a prisoner to a kiss
Addicted to temptation, and we did not resist

Now I can't get free, 'cause she won't let go, she won't leave my soul alone


Now I'm a stranger to myself, now my life is not my own
She won't leave my soul alone


(Lead me to the river) Lead me to the river, I'll pray for rain
(Lead me to the river, pray for rain) She comes back to me again
(Lead me to the river) Lead me down, take me down
(Lead me to the river, pray for rain) Pray for rain

(Lead me to the river, lead me to the river
(Lead me to the river, pray for rain)
