Spirit on the Water

Spirit on the water

Darkness on the face of the deep

I keep thinking about you baby

I can't hardly sleep

.

I'm traveling by land

Traveling through the dawn of day

You're always on my mind

I can't stay away

.

I'd forgotten about you

Then you turned up again

I always knew

We were meant to be more than friends

.

When you're near

It's just as plain as it can be

I'm wild about you, gal

You ought to be a fool about me

.

Can't explain

The sources of this hidden pain

You burned your way into my heart

You got the key to my brain

.

I've been trampling through mud

Praying to the powers above

I'm sweating blood

You got a face that begs for love

.

Life without you

Doesn't mean a thing to me

If I can't have you

I'll throw my love into the deep blue sea

.

Sometimes I wonder

Why you can't treat me right

You do good all day

And then you do wrong all night

.

When you're with me

I'm a thousand times happier than I could ever say

What does it matter

What price I pay

.

They brag about your sugar

Brag about it all over town

Put some sugar in my bowl

I feel like laying down

.

I'm as pale as a ghost

Holding a blossom on a stem

You ever seen a ghost? No

But you have heard of them

.

I see you there

I'm blinded by the colors I see

I take good care

Of what belongs to me

.

I hear your name

Ringing up and down the line

I'm saying it plain

These ties are strong enough to bind

.

Now your sweet voice

Calls out from some old familiar shrine

I got no choice

Can't believe these things would ever fade from your mind

.

I could live forever

With you perfectly

You don't ever

Have to make a fuss over me

.

From East to West

Ever since the world began

I only mean it for the best

I want to be with you any way I can

.

I been in a brawl

Now I'm feeling the wall

I'm going away baby

I won't be back 'til fall

.

High on the hill

You can carry all my thoughts with you

You've numbed my will

This love could tear me in two

.

I wanna be with you in paradise

And it seems so unfair

I can't go to paradise no more

I killed a man back there

.

You think I'm over the hill

You think I'm past my prime

Let me see what you got

We can have a whoppin' good time

.
