What the Water Gave Me by Philliewig What the Water Gave Me by Philliewig
"Time it took us
To where the water was
Thatís what the water gave me
And time goes quicker
Between the two of us
Oh, my love, donít forsake me
Take what the water gave me

Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow
Pockets full of stones

Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow

And oh, poor Atlas
The worldís a beast of a burden
Youíve been holding on a long time
And all this longing
And the ships are left to rust
Thatís what the water gave us

So lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow
Pockets full of stones
Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow

ĎCause they took your loved ones
But returned them in exchange for you
But would you have it any other way?
Would you have it any other way?
You couldn't have it any other way

ĎCause sheís a cruel mistress
And a bargain must be made
But oh, my love, donít forget me
I let the water take me

Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the over flow
Pockets full of stones

Lay me down
Let the only sound
Be the overflow"

Credits for the song "What the Water Gave Me" go to Florence + The Machine.

It's amazing how something that could be just a big fat black ink blotch turns into an artwork with a little bit of inspiration and talent from a good artist.
