I was a Wave

I was a wave curling up,
Man, what were you thinking of?
I don't owe love to anyone.

Rise up, the sun will take you on,
and no one will know when you're gone;
You wake up
And roll in
You wake up
And roll in

I heard you sighing like the dead;
The new world had gone to your head
Didn't think fast like you should've

Said I'm a dead weight on your life
'cos I'm there and I just wouldn't die
Well guess what?

I feel my heart slowing down
'cos I feel the ocean call and
Today I drown

Hey, did the newcomers take your place?
Oh no.
Fucking each other like nothing's changed
Oh no.

I couldn't breathe, backwater slums;
No looking back, that time is gone
You feel the world rattling on, rattling on
I wasn't safe, there in your love
This world is cruel, they want your blood
I don't believe we'll ever be done.
