Just a Wave (Live) - Lyrics

Thirst is not the answer oceans come and go
I loved her seven seas worth Lord I loved her so
But she let me down so easy one slow drop at a time
I would've killed myself but it made no sense
Commitin' suicide in self defense But I lost everything I brought her
When she said babe you're just a wave you're not the water

Centuries ago we were living on the gold coast
She was still in love with a long gone cold 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
I even thought that I out-thought her
Till she said babe you're just a wave you're not the water
I said someday we'll love again 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 babe you're just a wave you're not the water
Well I followed her far and wide with all of my will
Water on the move you know it never stands still
And I moved every muscle just to prove it can be done
Then up some old sad river where snow white lilies float
I came to her for mercy but I hardly rocked the boat
She seemed surprised that I had caught her
But she said babe you're just a wave you're not the water
She said babe you're just a wave you're not the water
