Re: Water

thanks Dino...I know water is sometimes overlooked, but it may be as precious as oil in the future...I can just imagine "water speculators" driving the cost up if we don't watch out.

Re: Water

These lyrics definitely want to make me get a glass of water! Nice chord changes aswell, especially the use of C and E major, outside the tonic key of D major.

Re: Water

Thanks mc,

I didn't have the music theory behind me when I wrote it. It just seemd to fit the song.
