Dire Straits Water Of Love Lyrics

Last updated: 10/27/2010 12:00:00 PM

High and dry in the long hot day
Lost and lonely every way
Got the flats all around me, sky up above
yes I need a little water of love

I've been too long and lonely and my heart feels pain
Crying out for some soothing rain
I believe I have taken enough
yes I need a little water of love

Water of love deep in the ground
But there ain't no water here to be found
Some day baby when the river runs free
It's gonna carry that water of love to me

There's a bird up in the tree sitting up high
Just a waiting for me to die
If I don't get some water soon
I'll be dead and gone in the afternoon

Once I had a woman I could call my own
Once I had a woman now my woman she gone
Once there was a river now there's a stone
You know it's evil when you're living alone
