The Wave

Lyricist: Josh Osborne & Ross Copperman    Composer: Josh Osborne & Ross Copperman

We were talking on a boardwalk
We were lit up when the lights came down
So we drifted toward the music
And you kissed me as the sound
Of my favorite band was playing
But I couldn't hear them 'cause my heart
Was beating loud and out of rhythm
As you drowned out all the dark

I was a boat trapped in a bottle
Dying for water, you were the ocean
I was a compass that couldn't find heaven
I didn't know how bad I was broken
I was a castaway with no land
I drew a broken heart in the sand
And you were the wave, the wave, the wave
That washed it all
That washed it all away

We talked for a couple of hours
We got salt all over our jeans
And we laughed about forever
What the hell did that really mean?
And all of a sudden, thanks to you
My favorite color was blue
I never saw you coming
Sweet salvation and I never knew

I was a boat trapped in a bottle
Dying for water, you were the ocean
I was a compass that couldn't find heaven
I didn't know how bad I was broken
I was a castaway with no land
I drew a broken heart in the sand
And you were the wave, the wave, the wave
That washed it all
That washed it all away

I was a town closed for winter
I was a Ferris wheel with the lights burned out
'Til you came along, when you came along

I was a boat trapped in a bottle
Dying for water, you were the ocean
I was a compass that couldn't find heaven
I didn't know how bad I was broken
I was a castaway with no land
I drew a broken heart in the sand
And you were the wave, the wave, the wave
That washed it all
That washed it all away

Yeah, you washed it all away
You were the wave, the wave, the wave
Yeah, that washed it all away
