Mile upon mile got no direction,
We're all playing the same game.
We're all looking for redemption,
Just afraid to say the name.

So caught up now in pretending,
That what we're seekin' is the truth.
I'm just looking for a happy ending,
All I'm looking for is you.

You came upon me wave on wave,
You're the reason I'm still here, yeah
Am I the one you were sent to save?
You came upon me wave on wave.

I wondered out into the water,
And I thought that I might drown.
I dunno what I was after,
I just know I was going down.

That's when she found me,
I'm not afraid anymore.
She said"You know I always had you baby,
Just waitin for you to find what you were looking for.

You came upon me wave on wave,
You're the reason I'm still here.
Am I the one you were sent to save,
When you came upon me wave on wave.

Wave on wave.
Wave on wave.

And you came upon me wave on wave,
You're the reason I'm still here.
Am I the one you were sent to save,
When you came upon me wave on wave.
The clouds broke and the angels cried,
You ain't gotta walk alone,
That's why he put me in your way,
And you came upon me wave on wave.

Wave On Wave Lyrics

Mile upon mile got no direction,
We're all playing the same game.
We're all looking for redemption,
Just afraid to say the name.

So caught up now in pretending,
That what we're seekin' is the truth.
I'm just looking for a happy ending,
All I'm looking for is you.

You came upon me wave on wave,
You're the reason I'm still here, yeah
Am I the one you were sent to save?
You came upon me wave on wave.

I wandered out into the water,
And I thought that I might drown.
I dunno what I was after,
I just know I was going down.

That's when she found me,
I'm not afraid anymore.
She said"You know I always had you baby,
Just waitin for you to find what you were looking for.

You came upon me wave on wave,
You're the reason I'm still here.
Am I the one you were sent to save,
When you came upon me wave on wave.

Wave on wave.
Wave on wave.

And you came upon me wave on wave,
You're the reason I'm still here.
Am I the one you were sent to save,
When you came upon me wave on wave.
The clouds broke and the angels cried,
You ain't gotta walk alone,
That's why he put me in your way,
And you came upon me wave on wave.

    Heard this song a million times and never paid much attention to it. But as things happen in life and we go through hard times and this came on pandora. It made me realize that my wife and family are the reason i am still here. They save me from my inner badness, make me want to be a better man and to just carry on. I am not alone after all.

    Finding your soul mate in the midst of your current life... But you really haven't experienced all life is supposed to be until this person changes you... Your being... Your perspective... Your love... Your wants... Your dreams. Wave on wave for me means allowing love to change everything in your life.

    The very essence of love is It's power to save you. To truly love may mean waiting patiently for that person to make mistakes, and being able to then offer support and true understanding. It may take years, but if the feelings are genuine, the salvation of love will be there in the end.

    Gary saved me. We were apart for 37 years, 3 spouses, and on the night i was going to kill myself, "wave on wave" was playing on the radio, and gary called me... After 37 years ! I cry whenever i hear this song... This song truly did save me. This song enabled gary to know that i was really in trouble and he found me and saved me.
