Can I draw some water babe,
from your well.
Can I draw some water baby,
cuz mine has fell.

The bucket won’t come up,
no matter how hard I crank.
The bucket won’t come up,
i think it sank.

I walked the road between your house and mine.
I held the bridge as it collapsed.
I hope the man at the gate will help me through.
Unless he’s holding on to you.

Holding on to you.

How has your garden grown?
Is there fruit on the trees?
Do you need a laborer,
to pull up them weeds?

Oh I am so lonely baby,
in my house on the hill
Oh I am so lonely baby,
the silence kills

I walked the road between your house and mine.
I held the bridge as it collapsed.
I hope the man at the gate will help me through.
Unless he’s holding on to you.

Holding on to you.

I wish that I could sit,
in your garden again.
And watch the stars at night,
from your bed.

I walked the road between your house and mine.
I held the bridge as it collapsed.
I hope the man at the gate will help me through.
Unless he’s holding on to you.

    General CommentI like this one. The original isn't as good as the acoustic, though. It's pretty melancholy, but it kinda seems hopeful at the same time. It's really the only song off "Prove It" so far that I've been able to listen to more than a couple times without it losing its luster.

    My Interpretationso let me start by saying this is my first time doing this so don't judge to harshly lol thanks all...

    so I believe this song is about a love triangle there are three guys one unspoken of and the second guy is one she holds as a friend and possibly more the third guy is a lover or significant other she can't be with at the time and most of this is from a the third guys prospective..

    Can I draw some water babe,
    from your well.
    Can I draw some water baby,
    because mine has fell.

    I believe that when he says can I draw some water that the third guy means can I be with you? can I get some of your love? that we experience so well together... and when his has fell he hasn't had love for himself or respect..

    The bucket won’t come up,
    no matter how hard I crank.
    The bucket won’t come up,
    I think it sank.

    and no matter how hard he tries he can't replace her love or the love they felt together... and he is worried she will forget about him and the love will dissipate

    I walked the road between your house and mine.
    I held the bridge as it collapsed.
    I hope the man at the gate will help me through.
    Unless he’s holding on to you.

    here he is trying to close the gap he knows how much he wants her and he hopes that he hasn't killed all chance of them being together... the man at the gate is her closest friend possibly even someone who plays mind games with her keeping her as his second/ safety net and when she confesses all this to the her close friend he gives her advice and the third guy is praying that the second guy will give her a chance to make her own decisions and let her love him but he literally is the guardian(for good or bad despite his own intentions)

    How has your garden grown?
    Is there fruit on the trees?
    Do you need a laborer,
    to pull up them weeds?

    When he asks how has your garden grown he is referring to all the things she had to think about after giving them space .. is there fruit on your trees? Do you need a laborer to help? have you been able to make your decisions? do you need help with those decisions? did you get all the weeds up? the things that were keeping them apart.

    Oh I am so lonely baby,
    in my house on the hill
    Oh I am so lonely baby,
    the silence kills

    he lives a short distance away from her and the silence and loneliness from the space he gave her is killing him inside not knowing if she still loves him the way she did

    I wish that I could sit,
    in your garden again.
    And watch the stars at night,
    from your bed.

    he here says that I could sit again with you forever lost in you in your beauty emotionally spiritually and physically... and lay and watch the stars again from the place where they first fell for each other....


    So this is my attempt sorry if I am way off but based on a recent personal experience this is how I interpreted it if you don't agree it's all good ha-ha
