Hay, Colin - There's Water Over You Lyrics

I can feel your love come shining
Over and across the sea
There never was a light more blinding
Ever watching over me

I walk into the swirling wind
It carries me away
Back to where my life begins
Can you hear me say?

I can see you where you're hiding
And there's water over you
I know that you are pretending
And there's water over you

I walk beside you on the wall
Oh, so far away
You will catch me if I fall
Can you hear me say?

Love and all security
These are things you give to me

I can touch you when I'm dreaming
Long into the lonely night
You hold me when I wake up screaming
Everything will be alright

And if I had to choose between
Meeting God or you
I would wake my king and queen
There's water over you

Love for all eternity
This and more you give to me

Hay, Colin There's Water Over You Comments
  1. Angie Potter

    So beautiful. Thats an artist. These people we have now mostly just fake &phoney. His own words voiced by himself as well as playing guitar. Yes im a fan of him and of real music...

  2. Hughie Carolan

    Loved men at work but never got to see them live but fortunately I've got to see Colin a couple of times as a solo artist and he never disappoints. How this man has stayed under the radar for so long is one of life's great mysteries

  19. John Smith CEO Choke Collar Records

    Thank you for sharing your incredible talent, Colin!

  20. speck

    Awesome singer/songwriter. He and Huey Lewis should do a duo. Their voices are very similar.

  21. Niccolo B.

    Based on the first chords i see and hear
    then first finger on 1st fret b string
    Someones gotta do a tutorial on this song!!!

    Niccolo B.

    @Peter Ngaia cool! Have a link i can go to?

    Peter Ngaia

    No link as Tom doesn't do note for note but .. this is hard to explain..I played for years and the chords flow as you need, according to your fretboard knowledge. Best I can suggest is Tommy's DVD " Emmanuel Labor".. OR, see any street busker give'm a few dollars and they'll help you out 'cause it'll help them too, Good Luck>

    Niccolo B.

    Ahh i see thanks so much though, appreciate the help!

    Peter Ngaia

    Sorry I can't show you in person, the chords as he sees are in his repertoire and you are trying to do same. Find a GOOD player throw them acuppla bucks for their time and you will know that for ever and you will write as well as.Not much to lay out for your future skills.


    Did you ever stick this on Ultimate Guitar?
    There is a sad lack of Colin Hay music on there :(

  22. nothadnotbad

    So damn beautiful. Brings tears of joy every time I hear it thinking of those close to me who've gone on to their great reward.

  25. StormBringer501

    MAW was my first concert... That I will NEVER forget. Joked with my friend that went to it with me, that MAW was coming out with a 3rd albumn called 'Overtime', and he believed it... We still kid each other about it to this day...

  33. akm1171

    love this song

  34. bottomfeeder73

    Wow! Brings a tear to the eye. So good!!

  35. Sculge

    I think Colin Hay is one of the best musicians out there. There is nothing I love more than his acoustic pieces. I get frustrated when I go to buy his albums and pieces like this are full band. Don't get me wrong, its still amazing, but there is something serene and masterful about his purely acoustic pieces that make them that much better.

  36. Janos Kanalas

    could anyone post tabs/chords please? thanks

  37. FunZogga

    Most awesome musician o.o
    Thank you Colin, u helped me so often to keep my way in bad times :´)
    My aim is it to see u one day live...you´re great!

  38. basgitaardrumstel

    Is there anyone who has tabs for this?

  39. blines799

    Beautiful, just beautiful !
    I don't use the word "Genius" too often, but this guy is one.

  40. Radu

    Brings back memories of my own dad, who passed away years ago.
    We quarrelled a lot but still miss the old bugger.

  41. Gordon Merrilees

    @SzilyWorld Whatever....I'm still proud to be Scottish!

  42. Gordon Merrilees

    Makes me very proud to be Scottish!

  43. Red Scofield

    I saw Colin Hay at the Granada Theater in Dallas... the last show of his 2010 tour... it was a real treat. He's got a great sense of humor and a ton of stories... also, he's one hell of a musician and writer... it was a wonderful evening...

  44. Cassandra Lee

    @stanton542000 - Just a quick note to say that his father actually passed away last year. Therein lies the poignancy in the "playing asleep" and throwing water over him to wake him. Knowing that he is singing this song for his father who has crossed over, makes it just that much more beautiful! "I can see you where you're hiding, and there's water over you."
