Alan Parsons Project, The - Wine From The Water Lyrics




You can take me up, you can wind me down
There's no escape, but I'll never drown
No wires or strings, No rough and smooth
Just fires and stings, Watch me closely, Watch my every move

I can count your money while I check your hand
And you know I just can't lose

Wine from the water, Gold from a tree
I wouldn't fool you, There's nothing up my sleeve
Look for a mirror, There's nothing there
I get rings out of nowhere, Money from thin air

I can break these chains, While I'm upside down
Well it may seem strange, I don't hit the ground
Now you see my hand, Is quicker than your eye
You should know by now, What you see here, all of it's a lie

I can count your money while I check your hand
And you know I just can't lose

Wine from the water, Gold from a tree
I wouldn't fool you, There's nothing up my sleeve
Think of a number, I'll get it right
Throw me in the river, Tie my hands up tight

I can wind you up, I can turn you round
No cunning stunts, till the lady's found
No coils or springs, just nice and smooth
No Knaves or Kings, Find the lady, Watch my every move

I can count your money while I check your hand
And you know I just can't lose

Wine from the water, Gold from a tree
I wouldn't fool you, There's nothing up my sleeve
Look for a mirror, No, nothing there
I get rings out of nowhere, Money from thin air

Wine from the water, Gold from a tree
Now I wouldn't fool you, There's nothing up my sleeve
Think of a number, I'll get it right
You can throw me in the river, Tie my hands up tight

Wine from the water, Gold from a tree
Now I wouldn't fool you, There's nothing up my sleeve
Look for a mirror, There's nothing there
I get rings out of nowhere, Money from thin air

    Wine From the Water
    Alan Parsons

    You can take me up, you can wind me down
    There's no escape, but I'll never drown
    No wires or strings, No rough and smooth
    Just fires and stings, Watch me closely, Watch my every move
    I can count your money while I check your hand
    And you know I just can't lose

    Wine from the water, Gold from a tree
    I wouldn't fool you, There's nothing up my sleeve
    Look for a mirror, There's nothing there
    I get rings out of nowhere, Money from thin air

    I can break these chains, While I'm upside down
    Well it may seem strange, I don't hit the ground
    Now you see my hand, Is quicker than your eye
    You should know by now, What you see here, all of it's a lie
    I can steal from your pocket when I check your hand
    And you know you can't refuse

    Wine from the water, Gold from a tree
    I wouldn't fool you, There's nothing up my sleeve
    Think of a number, I'll get it right
    Throw me in the river, Tie my hands up tight

    I can wind you up, I can turn you round
    No cunning stunts, till the lady's found
    No coils or springs, just nice and smooth
    No Knaves or Kings, Find the lady, Watch my every move
    I can count your money while I check your hand
    And you know I just can't lose

    Wine from the water, Gold from a tree
    I wouldn't fool you, There's nothing up my sleeve
    Look for a mirror, no, nothing there
    I get rings out of nowhere, Money from thin air

    Wine from the water, Gold from a tree
    Now I wouldn't fool you, There's nothing up my sleeve
    Think of a number, I'll get it right
    You can throw me in the river, Tie my hands up tight

    Wine from the water, Gold from a tree
    Now I wouldn't fool you, There's nothing up my sleeve
    Look for a mirror, There's nothing there
    I get rings out of nowhere, Money from thin air

  9. Alberto Torterolo

    Excelentes arreglos, ritmo, contrastes, esta canción tiene todo. No sé si sonaría mejor con la voz de el otro Eric (Woolfson), yo respeto mucho la selección del artista, aunque obviamente en su momento no era elección poner a Woolfson.

  10. Virginia Bravo

    Great song! Love AP and Eric Stewart. The perfect match.

  11. Lauretta Roper

    ... and to think i didn't like slow songs.. converted by the end...Siren Song is Beautiful.... 😘

  12. voxdeorum

    I always listened "I can catch your money,.," instead "I can count your money...". Unbelievable!!!

  13. The Herald

    Het darticus! Your dad has good taste in music!

  14. Randolph the frog & jack

    Very nice recording quality. I am listening on klipsch 20i ear buds and it is greatly appreciated.

  15. The Invisible Man

    Reminds me of when commercial radio was a good place to hear real music.

  16. Darticus the Great

    My dad used to play this song all the time, and I totally forgot about it! Thank you for helping me find this song...

  17. Tomasz Toft

    Didn't recognize at first that it was Eric Stewart at lead vocals. It's much deeper than in most 10cc songs.

    sherry fitzgerald

    +Tomasz Toft he also sang "Siren Song" on the same album "try anything once" with Alan Parsons. it is also deep, as you say. i think it is even deeper. they lyrics really make you think about life. a beautiful song

    The Herald

    Sherry Fitzgerald. Sure does!!! "Tales of mystery and imagination by Edgar Allen Poe" True musical geniuses!

    Tomasz Toft

    @sherry fitzgerald Listen to his song Guitaaarghs from his solo career. Even deeper than Siren Song

  18. Ace Winger

    It's a great album, but this is ma favourite track (-:

    Giuseppe Fabrizio Turrisi

    I fully agree

  19. Charlie Trece

    " I can count your money while I shake your hand". Love that line. You can't be any smoother than that!

    dsn Knwefbdfa

    It's sort of a tribute to the infamous Eye In The Sky phrase, "I can cheat you blind."

  20. Jorge Andrés Arango

    I know Woolfson had already left the band then, but it would be great this song with his voice.

    Tom Helmsmann

    I thought the same thing too, first time I heard this.

  21. Mark Kupkup

    hopefully i wont have to wait 3 monts-2yrs for someone else to reply

  22. Mark Kupkup

    wine for the water & the three of me best songs on the album. Maybe best songs they had in the decade of the 90's

    Jorge Andrés Arango

    The Siren Song and Re-Jigue are pretty great too.

    alan coop

    The Whole album is Great!

    Joseph03743

    +alan coop It is, like all their albums, IMHO.

    Christopher U.S. Smith

    "Oh Life (There Must Be More)" is also a killer track, thanks to Messers Parsons and Pack.

    Christopher U.S. Smith

    @Lone Survivor Cheap, how? The song has very Project-esque sonics. You hear that song, and you know AP was involved.

  23. MrFoliumofdescartes

    Incredible super smooth badass kickass song..........this song seriously kicks asssssssss......!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  24. jeff woolfson

    even if prefer the Eric Woolfson part, this album is every good album even the two after

  25. Casey4765

    Fucking song kicks ass! Thanks for posting.

  26. Michael Lachnicht

    i like this song :)

  27. Foxtrot

    a velvety song

  28. Jorge Andrés Arango L.

    I had a high school friend, we both were freaky.APP fans and we used to collect all the albums, I remember when this album came up and we listened to this song, he told me that this song would have sounded great with Eric´s voice.

  29. salamisalamibaloney

  30. Foxtrot

    Excelente cancion. una de mis favoritas del album.
