Cruel Sweet Water

(Pat Robinson, Elise Lebec)



I watch the way your eyes catch light
If you were the sky, you'd fly right by
I like the way you talk to me
Your soft voice just like a calming sea

And I can't feel this world anymore
Caught behind your perfumed door

CHORUS
You're like cruel, sweet water
Running down my face
You're like cruel, sweet water
Gone without a trace
Love is strong bitter sweet
Moves in slow but sinks in deep
You're like cruel, sweet water
Running down my face

I watch you dance in the open air
Where the sun still shines, I see you there
I've held your hand through the darkened skies
I'll be here when you close your eyes

And I can't hear your voice anymore
Drifting off this distant shore

BRIDGE
Oh, I don't know what you do to me
It tastes so good
I'm alive with the thought of you
It warms my skin like Norwegian wood

Tell me where do we go from here
You're saying the words I want to hear
You have me now and you'll have me then
Someday our paths will meet again

And I can't feel this world anymore
Caught behind your perfumed door

CHORUS
