Water and Wine ~ Lyrics

Written by Elli Hart

 

Tuesday morning had me thinkin, 

I lost my life to the love of drinkin, 

Tried to trade my love affair, 

For your golden locks of hair 

 

I couldn’t stop the rain, 

I had a child I had to give away 

 

Shoulda had the water, but I had the wine 

I needed you to miss me, but I fell to far behind 

Two bags and a beat up coat, I had an endless road and too much coke 

Six hours before daylight I lead a poets dream, a drunkards life 

 

Sunday morning and the sheets are wet 

Still haven’t got up yet 

Record player’s still spinning around 

Last night’s wine spilled on the ground 

 

I’d go to such great lengths 

Now I know, I don’t have the strength 

I couldn’t stop the rain, 

I had a child I had to give away 

 

Nothin left but these cigarettes and the hole I dug and 

God Damn it, I couldn’t had it but I swept it under the rug 

 

Shoulda had the water, but I had the wine 

I needed you to miss me, but I fell to far behind 

Two bags and a beat up coat, I had an endless road and too much coke 

Six hours before daylight I lead a poets dream, a drunkards life 

Six hours before daylight I lead a poets dream, a drunkards life
