What the Water Gave Me

Time, it took us
To where the water was.
That’s what the water gave me,
And time goes quicker
Between the two of us.
Oh, my love, don’t forsake me,
Take what the water gave me.

Chorus:
Lay me down,
Let the only sound
Be the overflow
Pockets full of stones.
Lay me down,
Let the only sound
Be the overflow.

And oh, poor Atlas,
The world’s a beast of a burden.
You’ve been holding on a long time,
And all this longing,
And the ships are left to rust.
That’s what the water gave us.

Chorus

’Cause they took your loved ones,
But returned them in exchange for you.
But would you have it any other way?
Would you have it any other way?
You couldn’t have it any other way

’Cause she’s a cruel mistress,
And a bargain must be made.
But oh, my love, don’t forget me
When I let the water take me.

Chorus (×2)
