"Water on Glass" is the third single by British singer Kim Wilde from her self-titled album.

A slightly different version of the song was featured on Wilde's eponymous debut album. It was released in the UK, Ireland and The Netherlands only with the non-album track "Boys" on the B-side. It just missed becoming Wilde's third consecutive UK Top 10 hit. The song was also the first track by Kim Wilde to appear on a Billboard chart, reaching #52 on the Top 60 Rock Tracks on 15 May 1982.

The song is about tinnitus, a medical condition that causes ringing in the ears.[1]
