Just A Wave, Not The Water

Lyrics

thirst is not the answer, oceans come and go
I loved her seven seas worth, Lord I loved her so
she let me down so easy, one drop at a time
‌I would've killed myself but it made no sense
committing suicide in self defense
but I lost everything I brought her when she said baby

She said baby you're just a wave, you're not the water, you're not the water

centuries ago living on the gold coast
she was still in love with some long, gone ghost
I was only trying to turn back the tide of her tears
‌I felt like an endless ocean, rolling through the fog
full emotion drifting like a weather beaten log
and I thought that I out thought her till she said baby

When she said baby, you're just a wave, you're not the water, you're not the water
She said baby, you're just a wave, you're not the water, you're not the water
Whoohoo, Whoohoo, Whoohoo, Whoohoo

I said someday we'll love again and then you'll know the score
I've taught you everything I know and maybe even more
that's true she said, more than you ever will
‌I said I've been your raging river, precious African queen
I've shown you everything that I've ever seen
but she knew more than I had taught her when she said baby

When she said baby, you're just a wave, you're not the water, you're not the water
She said baby, you're just a wave, you're not the water, you're not the water
She said baby, you're just a wave, you're not the water, you're not the water
She said baby, you're just a wave, you're not the water, you're not the water
Whoohoo, Whoohoo, Whoohoo, Whoohoo
