GRACE POTTER & THE NOCTURNALS


Nothing But The Water (I) Lyrics

I have seen what man can do
When the evil lives inside of you
Many are the weak
And the strong are few
But with the water
We'll start anew

Well, won't you take me down to the levy, take me down to the stream, take my down to the water,
we're gonna wash our souls clean, take me down to the river, take me down to the lake,
Yes, we'll all go together, we're gonna do it for the good lord's sake

I have fallen so many times
For the devil's sweet, cunning rhymes
And this old world
Has brought me pain
But there's hope
For me again

Well, won't you take me down to the levy, take me down to the stream, take my down to the water,
we're gonna wash our souls clean, take me down to the river, take me down to the lake,
Yes, we'll all go together, we're gonna do it for the good lord's sake

Tried my hand at the bible, tried my hand at prayer, but now nothing but the water is gonna bring my soul to bare,
but now nothing but the water is gonna bring my soul to bare

I originally thought it said take *men* down to the water. And the women were ridding their lives of the evil men in them, drowning them down there or something. Honestly, I liked that interpretation better. Still love it though.

She was looking for insight, didn't find it in the Bible or in prayer. If you have ever sat on a beach watching the waves come in, then you know what I mean. This simple act can renew your soul.

this song to me is getting the devil out your life and renewing your soul. washing your soul clean is it and making a change even when you see darkness call on god when evil live in side of you or among you.

it Could mean Babtism,but sounds like ,it's time for a change to rid evil from our lives and She is READY to be among the strong, water symbolically is cleansing, tried the bible,but it wasn't enough so water is her way to bare her soul, I GOT IT. We all need to GET IT.

Who cares if this song isn't biblically correct? It's about clearing yourself of the bad things you've done and preparing yourself for only good things to come.

Since baptism has nothing to do with salvation I'd say that's not it. Anyone who has 'tried' the Bible would know Jesus is the only way of salvation. It sounds like someone disillusioned with religion

It's Biblical. Though good, prayer and reading Bible won't save us. Only faith in what Jesus did on the cross for us will and Baptism is a public expression of that faith, dying to old self, rising anew, His Spirit now living and loving thru us. Jesus called Himself The Living Water. He loves u
