Coupla sad water songs

One of my favorite songs by Tori Amos is "Pick Out Your Cloud" which is a break up song that is sad and sweet.   In the lyrics, Amos explores the separation by using two raindrops getting a divorce ("If the rain has to separate from it self / does it say, 'pick out your cloud?'").  I was just listening to an Alabama Shakes Pandora station and an Otis Redding song came on that I'm not familiar with.  I love me some Otis Redding but this was a new one to me, "You Don't Miss Your Water." So many water-themed break-up songs out there!  I love both of these.  Here they are--
