About Waves

"Waves" is a song by English synthpop duo Blancmange, released in 1983 as the fourth and final single from their debut studio album Happy Families. It was written by Neil Arthur and Stephen Luscombe, and produced by Mike Howlett. "Waves" reached No. 19 in the UK and remained on the charts for nine weeks. In a 2016 interview with M Magazine, Arthur recalled of writing the song: "I had a summer job where I had to sit in this caravan handing out concrete slabs to builders. Most of the day I did nothing. It was a glorious summer and I just sat and wrote "I've Seen the Word", "I Can't Explain", "Waves". They were so minimal but Stephen laid these lovely melodies over the top."

Waves, then goodbye 
I live in a wafer thin dream
I, I can cry
You know that time, time''s not kind

But I remember the way we were 
Slow, slow sad love
I wonder do you miss my love
I know you can''t
It''s just a wave passing over me

What are these waves? 
They''re coming over me
It must be my destiny
Waves, coming by
Goodbye, goodbye

What are these waves? 
They''re coming over me
It must be my destiny
