Bob Carlisle Can’t Stop The River

The downpour’s coming; it’s on the rise,

Where the river runs above the cold, dark sand,

The rain is falling on the desert tonight,

There’s a voice in the river, and the faithful understand,

I just can’t believe my eyes tonight; what an awesome sight,

But I know that everything’s gonna be alright.

Because you…you can’t stop the river,

You can’t hold back the rain,

Can’t stop the power,

You won’t feel any pain,

And when the water rushes over you, you start your life again,

You can’t stop the river, oh.

The sky is turning; the dreamers awake,

I hear the angel voices rising with the flood,

My heart is pounding with the thunder above,

The clouds begin to cry as the river turn to blood,

I just can’t believe my eyes tonight; what a beautiful sight,

But I know that everything’s gonna be alright.

Because you…you can’t stop the river,

You can’t hold back the rain,

Can’t stop the power,

You won’t feel any pain,

And when the water rushes over you, you start your life again,

You can’t stop the river,

You can’t stop the river.

I just can’t believe my eyes tonight; what a beautiful sight,

Now I know that everything’s gonna be alright.

Can’t stop the river,

You can’t hold back the rain, no, no, no,

Can’t stop the power,

You won’t feel any pain,

And when the water rushes over you, you start your life again,

You can’t stop the river,

You can’t stop the river,

You can’t stop the river,

You can’t stop the river,

You can’t stop it.

You can’t stop the river,

You can’t stop the river,

You can’t stop the river,

Can’t stop it,

You can’t stop the river,

You can’t stop the river,

You can’t stop the river, whoa.
