Clean

Is there anybody lately, whose heart has been longing?
To walk beside you, but you’re walking beside him
And there ain’t a word that my body might speak
To show you how lately it’s fallen so weak

Yea, it’s a long way down to the river
It’s a long swim out of the stream
Yea, it’s a long day out in the desert
It’s a long road to being clean
So let me be clean

For something so fragile, it can never last
When skin is like paper and bones are like glass
So easily shattered, so easily torn
No, nary a soul has ever been warned

Yea, it’s a long way down to the river
It’s a long swim out of the stream
Yea, it’s a long day out in the desert
It’s a long road to being clean
So let me be clean
