Listen to the waves
Everything communicates
Will it ever be
Anything more than wishful thinking?

Oh no there you go
Looked away and missed the show
How much wasted time
Will you survive?

Feel the blades of grass
How it brings you back
It will always be
Only as green as you can see

Oh no there you go
Looked away and missed the show
How much wasted time
Will you survive?
Oh yeah fooled again
I don't know how and I don't know when
Not much else to blame
But wishful thinking

Little breakdowns
In coastal towns
They come suddenly
Crashing over you
They come easily
I'm falling through the skies
And frozen places

Oh no there you go
Looked away and missed the show
How much wasted time
Will you survive?
Oh yeah fooled again
I don't know how and I don't know when
Not much else to blame
But wishful thinking

And I try to realize
That I needn't look any further
The whole of the universe
Is plain to see
And I try not to rely
On another world or the future
The whole of the universe
Is a mystery

And it gets me over
Yeah it gets me over
And it gets me over
Yeah it gets me over
