Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

I saw the prompt late and was folding laundry, doing dishes. Started singing that first line. By the fifth time I sang it I figured musey wouldn't wait much longer so off I went. Started late and finished late but under an hour total.

Lyrics: 

Bring me some water, I can't help myself
You make me feel thirsty like nobody else
My body is aching, I can't get away
From this feeling inside that only you create

Nobody else can help me
You're the only one
All these things you do to me
They can't be undone

My heart starts racing and my mouth is dry
My knees get weak but I think I know why
You're the only cup of water that I need
You're the one for me
You're the one for me

Sit me in the shade, cool me with your fan
Make me feel better like only you can
Every time you're near me I can feel the heat
But you're the only medicine I will ever need

Nobody else can help me
You're the only one
All these things you do to me
They can't be undone

My heart starts racing and my mouth is dry
My knees get weak but I think I know why
You're the only cup of water that I need
You're the one for me
You're the one for me

I've never been much of a romantic
But I don't know how long I can stand it
You're a long, tall drink of water
And I'm stuck in the sand

My heart starts racing and my mouth is dry
My knees get weak but I think I know why
You're the only cup of water that I need
You're the one for me
You're the one for me
You're the one for me

Great twist on the theme!

the slight tempo switch into the chorus is really nice, and great bridge, that actually goes somewhere, not just another bridge to nowhere Wink

This is very sweet. I like the line "You're the only cup of water that I need." Well done!

This has good motion. It flows nicely from section to section. The lyric stays on point throughout Good sounding recording.

Oh this is really lovely! A beautiful love song that conveys passion, desire, and commitment with a kindness and sweetness that melts hearts. Love your chorus.

I love the description of your writing "process" for this one. Very organic. Sounds great, good structure, the rhythmic activity in the verses is so cool. Good skirmish!

Romantic/Stand it is a killer rhyme. This is heartfelt and sincere. Your lucky wife!
And I hear how this could be easily arranged into something bigger if you felt like it. Good basic structure and message. You rock! But this I already knew...

The music is highly effective. Is the lyric one of true love, a codependent anthem, or both? Depends on point of view I guess.
