lyrics

You said, "I'll love you when you turn this water into wine"
So I poured the crystal water onto a grapevine
Fell asleep and waited for the sun to shine
Picked the grapes at morning
They were sweet as knowing that you could be mine

If I tried a little harder
If I tried a little harder
You could be mine

You said, "I'll love you when you learn to walk on water"
So I built a vessel named after Poseidon's daughter
To the center of a lake is where I brought her
I walked around the boat and thought maybe you could be mine

If I tried a little harder
If I tried a little harder
You could be mine

You said I'm clever and that yes indeed I could yours
I said, "Love don't make you jump through hoops
It opens doors"
So I took my wine out to the rocky shore
I decided that I really do not need you anymore

Yeah I don't need to try harder
And I don't need to be smarter
I'll not be a martyr
I will not be yours
I will not be yours
