Waves

I thought that I knew love

But it was just a wave crashing over us

And in the breaths between the ones we meant to be

I had my head under my feet

you knew the way things were

you knew the way they would be

we knew exactly how it'd end

Strays on a stale sea

Oh anchor the engine to a canyon far beneath

Water rushed out from the boards below

So I started slicking my hair with the kerosine

And I'm preparing for a burial in sea

But I can't see the lighthouse

Yet I'm praying that these waters don't take me

Cause I can't see the lighthouse

I was screaming that the ship was sinking

but you were telling me to just keep drinking

Corded in the parts again

arms and legs at the bottom of the ocean

and the thing that made it so much harder

was the fact that you were someone's daughter

I thought that I knew love

But it was just a wave crashing over us
