"Water from a Vine Leaf" as written by William Orbit and Elizabeth Caroline Orton....
Swimming and swimming and swimming until you reach the ocean
Swimming into the sunset without me

There are 4 young girls giving me water from a vine leaf
Dropping it onto my tongue

    General CommentGreat song by Orbit in his prime. Having Beth around can't hurt either.

    To me, this song is about a woman consumed by worry over a lover who might disappear or abandon her. The first stanza's nightmare might be a case of dream incorporation, involving water from the second stanza.


    She's splashed into consciousness by the girls. However, it seems her obsessions will continue to haunt her in the waking hours.
