Music Monday – The River by Good Charlotte

Hey everyone!

It’s time for another Music Monday! Once again, Alex will be choosing this week’s song, because we are still in lockdown… (and Boris’ speech yesterday didn’t make anything clearer at all)
For this week’s song, he has chosen The River by Good Charlotte.

Music Monday was created by Drew over on The Tattooed Book Geek.


The River by Good Charlotte

The River is the first single to be released from Good Charlotte’s 2007 album, Good Morning Revival, and it features M. Shadows and Synyster Gates, who are both members of Avenged Sevenfold. Good Morning Revival is Good Charlotte’s fourth studio album.


Lyrics

As I walk through the valley
Of the shadow of L.A.
The footsteps that were next to me
Have gone their separate ways

I’ve seen enough now to know that beautiful things
Don’t always stay that way
I’ve done enough now to know this beautiful place
Isn’t everything they say

I heard that evil comes disguised
Like the city of angels
I’m walking towards the light

Baptized in the river
I’ve seen a vision of my life and I wanna be delivered
In the city was a sinner
I’ve done a lot of things wrong but I swear I’m a believer

Like the prodigal son, I was out on my own
Now I’m trying to find my way back home
Baptized in the river
I’m delivered, I’m delivered

You’re from a small town
You’re gonna grow up fast underneath these lights
Down in Hollywood on the boulevard
The dead come back to life

To the praying Mother and the worried Father
Let your children go
If they come back they’ll come home stronger
And if they don’t you’ll know

They say that evil comes disguised
Like the city of angels
I’m walking towards the light

Baptized in the river
I’ve seen a vision of my life and I wanna be delivered
In the city was a sinner
I’ve done a lot of things wrong but I swear I’m a believer

Like the prodigal son, I was out on my own
Now I’m trying to find my way back home
Baptized in the river
I’m delivered, I’m delivered

Baptized in the river
(On my own!)
Baptized in the river
(On my own!)
I wanna be delivered

(On my own!)
(On my own!)

Baptized in the river
(On my own!)
I wanna be delivered
Baptized in the river
(On my own!)
I wanna be delivered

Baptized in the river
(On my own!)
I wanna be delivered
I confess I’m a sinner
I’ve seen a vision of my life
And I wanna be delivered!
