Turning It Into Water

Album: Down in the Cellar (2000)

  • I used to have a secret cellar
    Where I kept the sweetest of my wine
    Now it seems that I've been too long
    Hanging on the vine

    And now she's turning it into water
    Never be the same again
    She's turning it into water
    All my wine tastes like the rain

    Damp has peeled away my labels,
    I can't read the writing any more,
    Nothing here to grace my tables
    Nothing left to store

    And now she's turning it into water
    Never be the same again
    She's turning it into water
    All my wine tastes like the rain

    Go bar the cellar door
    Throw out the rusty key
    Won't go there anymore
    There is no mystery
    There's nothing there to see

    Now I've lost these hopes and wishes
    I'm never going to change the way she feels
    The cupboard's bare of loaves and fishes
    All that time reveals is that

    She's turning it into water
    Never be the same again
    She's turning it into water
    All my wine tastes like the rain. Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
