Just a Wave, Not the Water

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 Committing 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've 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 have 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
