You ain't nothin' but trouble, far as I can tell
Just a wasted wish in the wishin' well
But you don't know, I've been here before
I'm just one too many miles from shore

And I'm takin' on water and I'm goin' down
Takin' on water, that's what I'm doin' now
Takin' on water with only one way out
I gotta get my heart to higher ground

Oh, I'm already in, in too deep
I know you won't be there to rescue me
I'm already feel it, right through my chest
I'm afraid if I taste it, I might not catch my breath

And I'm takin' on water and I'm goin' down
Takin' on water, that's what I'm doin' now
Takin' on water with only one way out
I gotta get my heart to higher ground

Why is a woman always thinkin'
Just because a man is sinkin'
He's gonna drown

But I'm takin' on water, goin' down
Takin' on water, that's what I'm doin' now
Takin' on water, there's only one way out
I gotta get my heart to higher ground

And I'm takin' on water, goin' down
Takin' on water, that's what I'm doin' now
Takin' on water with only one way out
I gotta get my heart to higher ground

Takin' on water, goin' down
Takin' on water, that's what I'm doin' now
Takin' on water with only one way out
I gotta get my heart to higher ground

Takin' on water, goin' down
Takin' on water, that's what I'm doin' now
Takin' on water with only one way out
