Song Meaning
Verse 1
You push me when I'm falling
And then you put me down
I guess I missed my calling
I should have been a clown
Verse 2
How much more
How much more can I stand
You're pouring water
On a drowning man
Verse 3
You put me on the right track
And then you put me down
You stab me in the back
Every time I turn around
Verse 4
Criticize my lovin'
When I'm doing the very best I can
You're pouring water
On a drowning man
You're pouring water
On a drowning man
You treat me like
The fool that I am
You bet that I like everything you do
Put salt in my wounds
It's sad but it's true
Verse 5
You warm me with your kisses
Then you leave me in the cold
How can I know your wishes
When I've never been told
Won't you please forgive me
Just try and understand
You're pouring water
On a drowning man
Verse 6
You're pouring water
On a drowning man
You treat me like
The fool that I am
You bet that I like everything you do
Put salt in my wounds
It's sad but it's true
Verse 7
You warm me with your kisses
Then you leave me in the cold
How can I know your wishes
When I've never been told
Won't you please forgive me
Just try and understand
You're pouring water
On a poor drowning man
Verse 8
I got tears in my eyes
Oh, I'm a drowning man
I got tears in my eyes
You're pouring water
On a drowning man
You're pouring water
On a poor drowning man
