Anything but water

Anything but water:
give me booze
give me clues
give me fried eggs
with runny yolks;
give me purpose
give me curses
give me a pair
of different folks.

Anything but water, please:
give me tears
give me years
give me kisses
with no strings attached;
give me affection
give me direction
give me different
eggs to hatch.
