  • I was born by the devil
    I was left here to die
    I lost hell out of ransom on the cold summer sky
    I was told not to love him
    I was told not to try
    I was lonely the only 'till he said he'd be mine
    He will leave me for younger
    He will leave me to cry
    Cut them, night, a little deeper
    Count the days I survived

    Yeah
    It's written in the water
    Yeah
    It's everywhere I go
    Tellin' me that I should leave you like I did two times before

    I define if I meant to
    When you still have had your own
    Give me one kiss for the road boy
    I guess it's time I left you alone

    I will run to the river
    I will reach for the well
    Drown my sorrows for someone
    In my hope I leave this hell
    I can't live for forgiveness
    I can't live with the lie
    I won't be what you wanted
    No, I won't be what you like

    Yeah
    It's written in the water
    Yeah
    It's everywhere I go
    Tellin' me that I should leave you like I did two times before

    I define if I meant to
    When you still have had your own
    Give me one kiss for the road, boy
    I guess it's time I left you alone

    Yeah
    It's written in the water
    Yeah
    It's everywhere I go
    Tellin' me that I should leave you like I did two times before

    I define if I meant to
    When you still have had your own
    Give me one kiss for the road, boy
    I guess it's time I left you alone

    Yeah
    It's written in the water
    Yeah
    It's everywhere I go
    Tellin' me that I should leave you like I did two times before

    I define if I meant to
    When you still have had your own
    Give me one kiss for the road, boy
    I guess it's time I left you alone Writer/s: STUART JOHN CRICHTON, VIRGINIA CLAIRE WIGMORE
