Cold Chisel - Water Into Wine Lyrics




City papers blow around me
As the mornin' hits the sky
On the ocean ships are waitin' high
So am I

City sweeper goes around me
He don't need no reason why
If I don't seem in a hurry now
I've arrived

Come on baby won't you save me
Turn this water into wine
Love, emotion, like an ocean
How can I hold back the tide

Baby meet me on the corner
When you hear that whistle blow
If I don't seem like I oughta
The one you used to know

Come on baby wont you save me
Turn this water into wine
Love, emotion, like an ocean
How can I hold back the tide

I'm on high ground
Put this weight down
Of one thing you can be sure
On the ocean ships are sailin'
But I don't need them anymore

Come on baby won't you save me
Turn this water into wine
Love, emotion, like an ocean
How can I hold back the tide

Come on baby won't you save me
Turn this water into wine
Love, emotion like an ocean
Turn this water into wine

    Sometimes I wish the water would turn to wine to ease the pain of losing Mum this year, I know she's in a better place, but never mind. At least good songs like these keep the feelings open but controllable.

    Jaime Browne

    hey taz, 7 long years im sure, hope things have eased up, going through similar stuff now and youre right, stuff like these songs just helps so much brother. jb

  17. Robert Maich

YOU ALL ARE THE BEST TO COME OUT OF THIS WONDERFUL COUNTRY at the right time.
    GOD BLESS ALL CHISEL FANS. THE BEST FANS,

    I think if they had made it in the UK and/or the USA, it would have ruined something vital to the sound. This is so much more honest and pure than any of the Aussie bands who did well over seas.

    Wally James

    Overseas success probably would have tipped the very hard living Jimmy Barnes over the edge and the band would have imploded sooner than they did. We would have missed out on 'Twentieth Century' and probably 'Circus Animals' as well. Bands that are big hits in their own country with little overseas impact can become national cultural icons as time goes on. Chisel did it in Australia, as did The Tragically Hip in Canada. Those that do make it big internationally often end up with a conflicted relationship with their home country; eg, Neil Young, Carlos Santana, the Bee Gees.

    Dan Edgar

    Probably, still there are the select few that made it further than cold chisel overseas and took off

  19. Guster1973
