Patti Smith – Wave lyrics

Hi. Hi. I was running after you for a long time.
I I was watching you from. ..
Actually I've watched you for a long time.
I like to watch you when you're walking
Back and forth on the beach.
And the way your the way your cloth looks.
I like I like to see the edges
-the bottom of it-
Get all wet when you're walking near the water there.
It's real nice to talk to you.
I didn't. I-i-i-i-i. .. How are you? How are you?
(oh albino)
I saw I saw you from your balcony window
And you were standing there waving at everybody
It was really great because there was about
A billion people there, but when I was waving to you,
Uh, the way your face was, it was so, the way your face was
It made me feel exactly like we're
It's not that you were just waving to me, but
That we were we were waving to each other.
Really it was really wonderful
I really felt happy
It really made me happy
And. Um. I. I just wanted to thank you
You really really you made me
You made me feel good
Oh I, it's nothing.
I um. I. Well I'm just clumsy.
No, it's just a bandaid.
No, it's ok.
Oh no, I'm always doing
Something's always happening to me
Yeah. Well. I'll be seein' ya.
Goodbye. Bye.

Wave thou art pretty.
Wave thou art high
Wave thou are music
Wave thou are white
(oh albino)
(oh albino)
Wave thou art high
(wave thou art pretty)
Wave to the city
Goodbye sir.
Goodbye papa.
