New Order Mormon Song of the Week: Let the River Run

This week's New Order Mormon song comes from one of my favorite 80s bands: the Alarm.  The song is called Let the River Run, and ironically comes from my least favorite album by them, Raw.  But the lyircs speak to me.  I especially like the line about "there's no truth like the truth you dare to let yourself see." 

    The future's deserted waiting there for you and me
No past is going to stop us blowing down this road apiece
Why we've come too far, too far to turn back now
We can't just throw it all away when something good goes wrong, oh no
Nothing has been written which says which way we have to go
I'm not looking for commitment written in stone
No everlasting promise no no

Let the river
Let the river run
Let the water
Let the water fall
Flow down off the mountain
Into the sea
Let the river run, run its course

We've stood this ground too long there's miles to make up
Oh it's way past the time we found out if we're truly good enough
There's no truth like the truth you dare to let yourself see
Better face it now there is nothing to fear
Everything to gain right in here

Let the river
Let the river run
Let the water
Let the water fall
Flow down off the mountain
Into the sea
Let the river run
Let the river run
Run its course

Let the river
Let the river run
Let the water
Let the water fall
Flow down off the mountain
Into the sea
Let the river run

Let the river run
Let the water fall
