Pouring Water On A Drowning Man (Album Version)

Pouring Water On A Drowning Man (Album Version)

Elvis Costello

You push me when I`m falling
And then you put me down
I guess I missed my calling
I should have been a clown

How much more
How much more can I stand
You`re pouring water
On a drowning man

You put me on the right track
And then you put me down
You stab me in the back
Every time I turn around

Criticize my lovin`
When I`m doing the very best I can
You`re pouring water
On a drowning man
You`re pouring water
On a drowning man
You treat me like
The fool that I am
You bet that I like everything you do
Put salt in my wounds
It`s sad but it`s true

You warm me with your kisses
Then you leave me in the cold
How can I know your wishes
When I`ve never been told
Won`t you please forgive me
Just try and understand
You`re pouring water
On a drowning man

You`re pouring water
On a drowning man
You treat me like
The fool that I am
You bet that I like everything you do
Put salt in my wounds
It`s sad but it`s true

You warm me with your kisses
Then you leave me in the cold
How can I know your wishes
When I've never been told
Won`t you please forgive me
Just try and understand
You`re pouring water
On a poor drowning man

I got tears in my eyes
Oh, I`m a drowning man
I got tears in my eyes
You`re pouring water
On a drowning man
You`re pouring water
On a poor drowning man
