Lyrics for THE song: Wells for Zoë Album

These are the very meaningful lyrics, by John Waters and Tommy Moran, for the new Sinead O’Connor song on the Wells for Zoe album.

Baby, Let Me Buy You a Drink

Sinéad OConnor

Sinéad O'Connor

I walked barefoot, I wore hand-me-downs.
I near died of drought, but now I fear to drown.
I, too, was a slave, I was told to die.
I was locked into history before I learned to fly.

First you showed me how to douse my fear,
Then you taught me how to feel, I think,
Then you saved me from myself, I sense.
Baby, let me buy you a drink,
Baby, let me buy you a drink.

I ran with the hare and stalked with the hound
I stared at my shoes while you were lying bound
I once was a thief, one who stole of your soul
Now I’ve come to rectify before I get too old.

First you showed me how to douse my fear,
Then you taught me how to feel, I think,
Then you saved me from myself, I sense.
Baby, let me buy you a drink,
Baby, let me buy you a drink.

Water is a fire; water isn’t wet.
Water is a higher power; water never forgets.
And there’s been too much sorrow, there’s been so much wrong
But water has the healing power; water, soft and strong.
Let me buy you a drink.
Baby, let me buy you a drink.
Baby
Baby
Let me buy you a drink.
