Songfacts®:

  • This song features the vocals of Juliette Lewis. However, DJ Fresh - real name Dan Stein - admitted to The Daily Star that the actress and singer wasn't his first-choice artist. "I don't always get my first choice when I choose a singer for a track but somehow it always works out," he said. "I got movie star Juliette Lewis to sing 'Fire Over Water' but she wasn't my first choice. I had Friendly Fires in mind but we couldn't get it together."
