about

Life is shared with friends and lovers. If you make it into a song, you share it with the world.

lyrics

Stepped away from the life I had
With nothing but what I could fit in a bag
Didn't know where my life would find me
Made a home out of Hawai'i

Found a world under the waves
Found a pearl and I gave it away
For a cigarette and a couple 40s
Watched day turn night and then back into morning

When the sun is gone
Still the waves they come
The waves they come
And somewhere if not here they'll find a shore
In the simmer of the morning
I would swim out in the ocean
To find I'm not alone
Just like the waves I always find my way home

Someday comes, and when it does
I say goodbye, I sell my stuff
And make my way away from where I am
Leave the faults, keep the gains
Shave my face, turn the page
And make a whole new life because I can

But when the summer's gone
Oh, the cold it comes
And it makes me wonder
What if I left Eden in my past
But the road was there before me
And I never could ignore it
A question in my soul I have to ask

Now I haven't been
To all of the place I want
But I wanna go back and put my face in the water
And I tell myself I will eventually
Until I do, gonna keep moving along
But I had to take a few so I could write this song
And remind myself what she meant to me

When the sun is gone
Still the waves they come
The waves they come
And somewhere if not here they'll find a shore
In the simmer of the morning
I will swim out in the ocean
To find I'm not alone
Just like the waves I always find my way home
