David Wilcox – Distant Water lyrics

From Home Again
..............................................

It's like you pass to me this bitter cup
So I can take a sip
And I know that it's likely gonna burn
But never mind the taste of it
I take what I can get
It sure is a hard way to learn

I mean look at how I sip your cup of nasty
Like I'm lucky for a taste to quench my thirst
When love creates an optical illusion
I'm gonna see it just the way it was rehearsed

Chorus

If I was dying in the desert
I would see shining on the sand
True love, like distant water
On dry land

I liked everything about you, except the way you treated me
But that didn't seem to matter much at first
I longed for you to fill me
Like a wino loves his drink
But every time you filled me with a thirst

Chorus

'Cause I was looking for a goddess who could save me
So I played the worshipping fool
The colder your kindness
The more it convinced me
You're just that cool

Now just look at how I sip your cup of nasty
Like I'm lucky for a taste to quench my thirst
When love creates an optical illusion
I'm gonna see it just the way it was rehearsed

Chorus

True love like distant water
On dry land
