Lyrics

BEFORE THE WAVES COME
©Owen Critchley

As she sips lemonade
She lets her legs hang in the water
And I can see the sky across her face
She believes she's lost without a trace

And she says, "I don't know
But I think I was beautiful."

But she cries when she says

I wanna fly
Because I can't run anymore
I'm so tired
Before the waves come
Maybe then I'll see
And I'll believe again

He'll bring a robe
For the lady by the water
Her name is tattooed across his chest
He survives on love and loneliness

And he says, "She's still so beautiful."

But he cries when she says

I gotta fly
Because I can't run anymore
I'm so tired
Before the waves come
Maybe then I'll see
And I'll believe again


She say, "Can you hear me, baby?
Will you save me, darling?"

Before the waves come...

Before the waves come
Maybe then I'll see
And I'll believe again
