"Water Runs Dry" as written by and Kenneth Edmonds....
We don't even talk anymore
And we don't even know what we argue about
Don't even say I love you no more
'Cause saying how we feel is no longer allowed

Some people will work things out
And some just don't know how to change

Let's not wait till the water runs dry
We might watch our whole lives pass us by
Let's not wait till the water runs dry
We'll make the biggest mistake of our lives
Don't do it, baby

Now, they can see the tears in our eyes, yeah
But we deny the pain that lies
Deep in our hearts
Well maybe that's a pain we can't hide
'Cause everybody knows that we're both torn apart

Why do we hurt each other?
Why do we push love away?

Let's not wait till the water runs dry
We might watch our whole lives pass us by
Let's not wait till the water runs dry
We'll make the biggest mistake of our lives
Don't do it, baby

Some people will work things out
And some just don't know how to change

Let's not wait till the water runs dry
We might watch our whole lives pass us by
Let's not wait till the water runs dry
We'll make the biggest mistake of our lives
Don't do it, baby

    General CommentThis song is about two people who split up and have yet to rectify what broke them up in the first place. The persona is coming upon a moment of realization that if they don't attempt to fix this, then they could regret it terribly.

    General CommentThis is like all of Boys to Men's songs very meaningful, they always seem to tell story's the best they can in their songs, Usually their songs are about relationships as are most artists. They just seem to pull it of so beautifuly! they may be old school, HA, they are comming out with a new album soon too, but anyway, they may be old school but they are really really good old school!!!!!!! many memories!!

    General CommentThis is an amazing song. I still listen to this almost everyday. Boys II men are some of the most amazing song writers ever. This is one of the best break up songs to cry to.
