Broadjam Member Reviews

I got a Simon and Garfunkel vibe from this. Meaning it has some deep lyrical qualities meshed with nice progressions, yet stays in a standard and listenable tune. I'll be the river that leads you home is soothing, no doubt. Some very honest singing and arrangement. If professionally produced to make it tighter and lose some of the spaces in between and sharper (as only producers can do for us songwriters), this could be a natural folk-feeling song on adult Christian radio. A more profound percussion presence would add a lot to this song as well but the keyboards sound very nice.

I'll be the river and hold you when the ice is thin
I'll be the river, come and drink me in
Me down here and you upon the bridge
Filling me up with your tears
Yeah, filling me up with tears
Let go and fall in my arms and we will drift to the sea
Where the winds will lift you up and set your troubles free

Sometimes we're blind
Even when we try to see
Sometimes we're blind
Oh, sometimes when we're wandering
And overwhelmed by the unknown
And you think that you're invisible
When you're lost and all alone
You need the river heading home
When you're lost and all alone
You need the river heading home
So, I'll be the river hold you when the ice is thin
I'll be the river, come and drink me in

Let go and fall in my arms and we will drift to the sea
