You left the water running when you left me here behind
You left the water running, running from these eyes of mine

You turned out the light of love
You left with another guy
You turned off all your love for me
But you forgot to turn off the cry
You forgot to turn off the cry

You pulled the shades away down low
And disconnected the telephone
But these tears a running from my eyes
I can't turn them off and on
No, I can't turn them off and on

You left the water running when you left me here behind
You left the water running, running from these eyes of mine

You locked the door and left me outside
And then you threw the key away
But baby, you'll regret, baby you'll be upset
When you get your water bill to pay
When you get your water bill to pay

You left the water running when you left me here behind
You left the water running, running from these eyes of mine
