Banks - If We Were Made Of Water Lyrics




You apologize
One too many times so I gave up
You used your second tries
All the words you end up spitting up
You have gentle eyes
That I love that I hate that I love that I hate that I love that I hate that I love

Baby say it again
Maybe if you say it again
Maybe if you say it again
Maybe I'll believe it then
Baby say it again
Maybe if you say it again
Change some words around
Maybe I'll believe you then

But I'm hurting from the way that this worked out
If you could rearrange your words you could've saved it
If we were made of water we could swim around it
But I can't no more

I still love you though
You're still my best friend
But I hate you though
And from my tippy toes
That I used to limp
Round your big ego
I shoulda told you so
When you asked me if I could forgive when you asked me I shoulda said no

But I'm hurting from the way that this worked out
If you could rearrange your words you could've saved it
If we were made of water we could swim around it
But I can't no more

But I'm hurting from the way that this worked out
If you could rearrange your words you could've saved it
If we were made of water we could swim around it
But I just can't believe no more

If we were made of water
If we were made of water
If we were made of water
If we were made of water

Banks If We Were Made Of Water Comments
  1. Inês Furtado

    This music make me feel so calm. I usually listen when im anxious or when I cant sleep. It always makes me feel better! Thanks for your amazing work! This song means a lot to me 💗

  2. Sashaaa Velourr

    The ode she gives to contaminated at 2:53 its soooo beautiful the connection of the two songs i just-

    She is the only artist i know who translates raw human emotion into music, one of the most talented musicians of our time

  3. Victoria Tawes

    The bird btw is a kookaburra.

  4. A.M.J

    if you listen to Warm Water, Drowning then this song, its the most painful thing ever.

  5. A.M.J

    the violin at the end is so mournful and makes me hit replay every time just to hear it again. this song is so heartbreaking. I'm not ashamed to say I've cried hearing it again and again. I love it but it hurts, even more than Under The Table makes me cry.

  6. desxo

    This song. I feel it was written for someone like me. Who has done wrong and has been given chances. I see it now. I’m sorry.

  7. Lingon Berryschnorrer

    Then we don't have to pay the water bills...

  8. Lydia Sutcliffe

    Every time I hear this song every hair on my body stands up... I will never ever get over how incredible you are...

  9. steve m

  12. Chelsea Shurmantine

    What a beautiful music video. Idk why but the way that liquid and glitter were moving made me feel so many things.

  13. emily long

  16. Darnai Smith

    This would be PERFECT as part of a movie soundtrack 😭😫

  35. Desiree Tabaco

  36. Felicia Johnston

    The climax of the song literally sounding like crashing waves is symbolically tied to the lyrics of it coming crashing down, also wiping away starting fresh. My thoughts when listening idk maybe it just sounds like giberish.

  37. Phayou Thanoulith

    (Headphones on) ~Melting on my couch~

    She-Ra Princess of Power

    Melanie93b

    Tiffani Monroe I understand you, currently going through that shit x

    Tiffani Monroe dude I’m having those feels right now too. How’d you find her and what was going on when you did?

  49. Сурай Мамметсахатова

  54. Paulie Gamez

    Gm 🌞

  55. Tiffani Monroe

    Whoever this song was for , severely hurt Banks but she was willing to forgive everything if only they just apologized the right way. She found her self worth by letting him go but she can admit she would’ve stuck around a little longer if they’d just put their pride to the side . She knew she was dealing with someone that had a way with words but she started catching onto the lies , she was willing to let this person pacify her with lies but she couldn’t live a lie anymore....

    Jessa Price

    I agree!!!

    Haley Williams

    Yes well-analyzed 👏👏

  56. moondreamerfairy

    Dude, my heart.... 😭

  57. Rebecca Meyer

    I just don’t think I was ready for this album. 🙌🏻

  58. Katerina T

    what kind of beautiful creature is she? what did she just make me feel? why am i crying thinking of my ex?

  59. Drayson Hill

    EASILY my favorite off the Album. Next to Godless. It reminded me of Mother Earth with the beginning of it. You sound soooo more mature and you are letting us into a world that we do wanted to see! If a song makes me cry and feel, it’s an instant CLASSIC 😊❤️ thank you!! THANK YOU!! For showing us your heart ❤️.

  66. Hannah Carriér

    Her voice

  67. Tiffani Monroe

    Sometimes you gotta walk away from the ones you love the most .

    zahra khalifa

    its painfull but yes ...

  68. Tiffani Monroe

    Banks is a true Gemini . We love so hard . That heartbreak helps us grow though.

    Gabriel Bingham

    Loving hard and growing from heartbreak is something everyone experiences. It's not a function of your zodiac sign

  69. Ava B

    Crying right now
    So damn relatable

  70. Nathan Farrar

    Sobbing.. 😳

  71. sabrina

    SHE'S SO PERFECT
    I'M REALLY IN LOVE ❤❤❤❤

  72. Tiffani Monroe

    Damn perfectly describes my situation. Love you banks

  73. Jessa Price

    He never apologized. Some people can't bring themselves to admit when they've done someone else wrong..... or they don't truly see the error of their actions because they're too busy worrying about their own needs. It hurts to know you're not worthy of an apology. I did see him change some of his ways, which maybe is better than an empty apology... but still.... Some things can't be brushed aside or forgiven without a truthful conversation- no matter WHAT that truth is- or no matter how badly you want to be with them. I would be abandoning myself, my needs and my self worth if I continued with him. If someone truly loves you they wouldn't ask you to do that to yourself.
    "But I’m hurting from the way that this worked out
    If you could rearrange your words you could’ve saved it"

    Tiffani Monroe

    Jessa Price Yessssssssssss girl !!!! That was my situation . I’m completely over him now . My person also never apologized . It’s okay no apology was the closure I needed.

    Jessa Price

    @Tiffani Monroe A great way to look at it- no apology as your closure. I'm going to try using that as my closure too. But I'd be lying if I said it wasn't DAMN HARD to get over someone who you care about but who you feel didn't care enough about you to even talk things over with you. Take care of yourself girl!

    Felicia Johnston

    Jessa Price , that is beautifully put. It's almost identical to how I feel about my situation. She always articulates my feelings perfectly with her songs, and lyrics. It's pure emotions. Very cathartic.

  74. Michael RI

    She went off!! Threw my wig across the room!
    Love love love💜

  75. Kiana Hodges

    I love BANKS! Her songs have helped me with a bad breakup i can’t seem to let go of.

    Felicia Johnston

    Totally I've been listening to her for two years and she's been in sync with every curve in my relationship. It's amazing the feelings she can describe. ;)

  76. RATEDRsensei

    "If you could rearrange your words you could of saved it" 😳😳😳

  85. High Pirate

    This entire album...wow...I love Banks. My favorites are this song and Godless.

  86. Daphne Figueroa

    One of my favorite master pieces from the album🙃 on repeat

  87. thatone240girl

    [Verse 1]
    You apologize
    One too many times, so I gave up
    You used your second tries
    All the words you end up spitting up
    But you have gentle eyes
    That I love, that I hate, that I love, that I hate
    That I love, that I hate, that I love

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Baby, say it again
    Maybe if you say it again
    And maybe if you say it again
    Maybe I'll believe it then
    Baby, say it again
    Maybe if you say it again
    Change some words around
    Maybe I'll believe you then

    [Chorus]
    But I'm hurting from the way that this worked out
    If you could rearrange your words, you could've saved it
    If we were made of water, we could swim around it
    But I can't no more

    [Verse 2]
    I still love you though
    You're still my best friend, but I hate you, though
    And from my tippy toes
    That I used to limp 'round your big ego
    I should've told you so
    When you asked me if I could forgive
    When you asked me, I should've said no

    [Chorus]
    But I'm hurting from the way that this worked out
    If you could rearrange your words, you could've saved it
    If we were made of water, we could swim around it
    But I can't no more

    [Bridge]
    Could've saved it (Could've saved it)
    Could've saved it (Could've saved it)

    [Chorus]
    And I'm hurting from the way that this worked out
    If you could rearrange your words, you could've saved it
    If we were made of water, we could swim around it
    But I just can't believe no more

    [Outro]
    If we were made of water
    If we were made of water
    If we were made of water
    If we were made of water
