Story

I've always loved this song but felt the original version lacked something,  When I revisited it, I finally had an "aha" moment.  Then it all came together.  Thank you to the masterful Enrique for making it even more playful...was that water bottles you were playing?

Lyrics

intro

We are born into this world  

With a certain disposition

To live our lives a certain way

It makes the world go around  

And calls to question who we are

And hard to get along from day to day

 

Verse

Ask me who I am and I’ll tell I’m a work in progress       

I will spend my life smoothing out rough edges  

 

I’m a changing picture and I’m not looking for a frame

It’s hard to love someone like that but love me just the same

 

Chorus

Don’t Water Me Down

I want to live in full color

Free to fly

Free to fall

Free to laugh

And cry at it all

And I will drown    

If you Water Me Down   

 

Verse

I’m not saying I can’t love you like I should

But a bird in a cage might as well be made of wood

 

I’m afraid of losing me if I give all my heart

And find our lives so close we can’t tell us apart

 

Chorus repeat

 

Bridge

I need air to breathe

I need room to run

I want to stand in my own light

Under your same sun

 

Chorus repeat
