Tonight I feel so weak
But all in love is fair
I turn the other cheek
And I feel the slap and the sting of the foul night air
And I know you're only human 
And I haven't got talking room
But tonight while I'm making excuses
Some other woman is making love to you

 Somebody bring me some water 
Can't you see I'm burning alive
Can't you see my baby's got another lover
I don't know how I'm gonna survive
 Somebody bring me some water 
Can't you see it's out of control 
Baby's got my heart and my baby's got my mind
But tonight the sweet devil, the sweet devil's got my soul

Will this aching pass
Will this night be through  Wanna hear the breaking glass
I only feel the steel of the red hot truth 
And I'd do anything to get it out of my mind
I need some insanity that temporary kind
Tell me how will I ever be the same
When I know that that woman is whispering your name

 Somebody bring me some water 
Can't you see I'm burning alive
Can't you see my baby's got another lover
And I don't know how I'm gonna survive
 Somebody bring me some water 
Can't you see it's out of control 
Baby's got my heart and my baby's got my mind
But tonight the the sweet devil, the sweet devil's got my soul

Oh-huh,oh yeah
Got my soul
Uh-huh, ooh yeah

 Somebody bring me some water 
Can't you see I'm burning alive
Can't you see my baby's got another lover
And I don't know how I'm gonna survive
 Somebody bring me some water 
Can't you see it's out of control 
Baby's got my heart and my baby's got my mind
But tonight the sweet devil, the sweet devil's got my soul
Oh yeah, oh, oh 
Baby's got my heart, my baby's got my mind
 Tonight the sweet devil, the sweet devil's got my soul
