Bring Me Some Water (Live)

Tonight I feel so weak
But all in love is fair
I turn the other cheek
And I feel the slap and the sting of the foul night air

And I know you're only human
And I haven't got talking room
But tonight while I'm making excuses
Some other woman is making love to you

Somebody bring me some water
Can't you see I'm burning alive?
Can't you see my baby's got another lover?
I don't know how I'm gonna survive

Somebody bring me some water
Can't you see it's out of control?
Baby's got my heart and my baby's got my mind
But tonight the sweet Devil, the sweet Devil's got my soul

When will this aching pass?
When will this night be through?
I want to hear the breaking glass
I only feel the steel of the red hot truth

And I'd do anything to get it out of my mind
I need some insanity, that temporary kind
Tell me how will I ever be the same?
When I know that woman is whispering your name

Somebody bring me some water
Can't you see I'm burning alive?
Can't you see my baby's got another lover?
And I don't know how I'm gonna survive

Somebody bring me some water
Can't you see it's out of control?
Baby's got my heart and my baby's got my mind
But tonight the sweet Devil, the sweet Devil's got my soul

Somebody bring me some water
Can't you see I'm burning alive?
Can't you see my baby's got another lover
And I don't know how I'm gonna survive

Somebody bring me some water
Can't you see it's out of control?
Baby's got my heart and my baby's got my mind
But tonight the sweet Devil, the sweet Devil's got my soul

Baby's got my heart and my baby's got my mind
But tonight the sweet Devil, the sweet Devil's got my soul
