Wine From The Water - Lyrics by Alan Parson Project, The


Lyrics

[parsons/bairnson]

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 fire 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
