River Rise by India.Arie

This is my new favorite song, from her new cd Testimony: Vol. 2, Love & Politics. I found a bootleg version on YouTube, but get out there and cop a good one and put in the iPod rotation. Here are a few of the lyrics just to give you a taste:

There was always a power I could feel
It was guidance to tell me the way to go

But nowadays I feel like I can't hear that voice
I've been flying blind
I need you to come and be my eyes, be my eyes

River rise, carry me back home
I cannot remember the way
River rise, carry me back home
I surrender today
