Washed by the Water

Here’s a song by Needtobreathe, a superb new band from South Carolina. They have a great sound — folksy, blues-tinged Southern rock with good pop sensibility.

Daddy was a preacher
She was his wife
Just tryin’ to make the world a little better
You know, shine a light
People started talking
Just to hear their own voice
Those people tried to accuse my father
Said he made the wrong choice
Though it might be painful
You know that time will always tell
Those people have long since gone
My father never failed

Even when the rain falls
Even when the flood starts rising
Even when the storm comes
I am washed by the water

Even when the Earth crumbles under my feet
Even when the ones I love turn around and crucify me
I won’t never ever let you down
I won’t fall
I won’t fall
I won’t fall as long as you’re around me
