Watching The Water

Watching The Water

From the Michael Andrew album Michael Andrew
Words and music by Michael Andrew Itzoe
Single

Released December 02, 1997
b/w In Paris/Ooh La La

"Watching The Water" was written for an old friend from high school. It's literally about how she used to unwind by going out and sitting under a willow tree on the shores of a lake and listening to her Walkman. The "fa la la" part arose because she'd recently lost her dog, an adorable Scottish terrier named Fala. Also, the "light upon the water" line is a reference to "Candle on the Water" from Pete's Dragon, one of her favorite songs.

Lyrics

I'm watching the water
Beneath the stars shining everywhere
And I feel magic in the moonlight
On the shore, in the air

I'm watching the water
As I lie beneath the willow tree
In my head I can hear the music
Sing along, sing along with me

Fa la la la la la la la la la
Fa la la la la la la la la la
Fa la la la la la la la la la
Fa la la la

There's a light upon the water
There's a light inside my heart
It shines so bright
It's the love I feel for you
When I'm watching the water

I'm watching the water
I watch the stars beneath the willow tree
And all around I can hear the music
Sing along, sing along with me

Fa la la la la la la la la la
Fa la la la la la la la la la
Fa la la la la la la la la la
