One Foot in the Water

 

 

 

 

 

 

(VERSE)

Leave the light switch on baby before you walk away

I hide underneath the covers to keep then dreams away

I hear the rain its fallin’, the drops bring on the shade

My pillow’s like the devil that brings comfort to my pain

 

(CHORUS)

‘Cause when I’m dreamin’ of the other side

I’ve got one foot in the water and one in the flame

‘Cause when I’m dreamin’ of the other side

I’ve got one foot in the water and one in the flame

 

(VERSE)

The benediction’s callin’ the revelations clear

I hang the bible over my head while I’m sleepin’ through the years

I’m always hearing last call while the spirits whisperin’

I’m beatin’ on that door but Peter still won’t let me in

 

(CHORUS)

‘Cause when I’m dreamin’ of the other side

I’ve got one foot in the water and one in the flame

‘Cause when I’m dreamin’ of the other side

I’ve got one foot in the water and one in the flame

 

(BRIDGE)

It’s not the cigarette smoke, the whiskey or the wine

It’s not your inhibitions or the water changin’ tide

It’s not the female body or the thousand times you’ve lied

It’s not the praise that you broke that makes your mother cry

t’s the everyday decision slowly fadin’ back in time

It’s the deja vu that makes you think that you have been there twice 

So come on with me baby cause the love you want arrived

When you get out of your bed this morning be thankful you’re alive

 

(CHORUS)

‘Cause when I’m dreamin’ of the other side

I’ve got one foot in the water and one in the flame

‘Cause when I’m dreamin’ of the other side

I’ve got one foot in the water and one in the flame

‘Cause when I’m dreamin’ of the other side

I’ve got one foot in the water and one in the flame

‘Cause when I’m dreamin’ of the other side

I’ve got one foot in the water and one in the flame
