Mary J. Blige – Mighty River (from “Mudbound”)

(Like a river)
I don’t want to fight
[?]
It keeps changing, and ticking, and moving, then passes by
(Like a river)
White flag in hand
White flag in hand
Let it wash you clean
So full of life

But if you’re lucky it will be kind
(Like a river)
(Mighty river)
Invisible, no colour life
Time tells no lies
(Like a river)
‘Cause it never gives up
(Like a river)
(Like a river)
Ego’s a killer, greed is a monster

(Like a river)

(Like a river)

Better wash me clean
I’m not gonna fight
(Like a river)
All it takes is time
(Like a river)
(Like a river)
The pain from yesterday
(Like a river)
(Like a river)
That’ll wash away
(Like a river)
‘Cause it never gives up

(Mighty river)
Cutting through [?]
Let it wash you clean
It’s time we put our, put our differences aside

Let it wash you clean
Going up stream
[?]
(Like a river)
Our blood is red, we’re not so different
Get this dirt off of me
(Like a river)
(Mighty river)
Cutting through [?]
But love is stronger, stronger than them all
It’s time we put our, put our, put our differences aside
Like a river flowing through time
Time tells no lies
The pain from yesterday
Like a river flowing through time
And I’m a believer like a river wild

Hope of forgiveness it waters the soul
So full of life
Life is a teacher, time is a healer
(Like a river)
But if you’re lucky it will be kind
We know wrong from right
Love is the answer, hate is a cancer
Rain down on me
(Like a river)
No lines in the sand, I’m on your side
(Like a river)
‘Cause underneath our skin we’re identical

No lines in the sand, I’m on your side
(Like a river)
Going up stream
That’ll wash away
Invisible, no colour life
It keeps changing, and ticking, and moving, then passes by
(Mighty river)
To heal this bloodline
