Water of Love by Dire Straits (1978) - Lyrics.

“Water of Love” is the second song from the Dire Strait’ self-titled debut album from 1978. This song is recorded in 1978 in a length 5-minutes and 23-seconds. The song is written by Mark Knopfler and it was produced by Muff Winwood.

In some countries “Water of Love” was released as a single, backed by “Down to the Waterline.” The first five songs of the debut album were included on Dire Straits’ demo tape that the band sent to Charlie Gillett, who played the tape on his radio show leading to the band’s first recording contract.

Mark Knopfler described “Water of Love” as one of the songs that came entirely from inside himself. He stated that he wrote it because: “I was so fed up. I felt I was going no place. I could see my future stretching out in front of me long and bleak.”

Lyrics

High and dry in the long hot day
Lost and lonely every way
Got the flats all around, sky up above
Yes, I need a little water of love

I’ve been too long lonely and my heart feel pain
Crying out for some soothing rain
I believe I have taken enough
Yes, I need a little water of love

Water of love deep in the ground
But there ain’t no water here to be found
Someday baby when the river runs free
It’s gonna carry that water of love to me

There’s a bird up in a tree sitting up high
Just waiting for me to die
If I don’t get some water soon
I’ll be dead and gone in the afternoon

Water of love deep in the ground
But there ain’t no water here to be found
Someday baby when the river runs free
It’s gonna carry that water of love to me

Once I had a woman I could call my own
Once I had a woman. Now my woman—she gone
Once there was a river now there’s a stone
You know it’s evil when you’re living alone

Water of love deep in the ground
But there ain’t no water here to be found
Someday baby when the river runs free
It’s gonna carry that water of love to me

Carry that water of love deep in the ground
But there ain’t no water here to be found
Someday baby when the river runs free
It’s gonna carry that water of love to me
