There's a day of reckoning coming
In my heart I know your gonna go
I'll believe it when I see it
When I see it I'll know

When the rain falls, when the sun sets
When the mountains tumble to the sea
When the waves on the ocean wave bye-bye baby bye-bye
The waves on the wave bye-bye baby bye-bye

I don't need you to paint me a picture
I don't need for you to write me a song
It's written on every inch of you
Only a matter, girl, of when you'll be gone

When the rain falls, when the sun sets
When the mountains tumble to the sea
When the waves on the ocean wave bye-bye baby bye-bye
The waves on the wave bye-bye baby bye-bye

You know how I feel about it
How I feel won't keep you here

When the rain falls, when the sun sets
When the mountains tumble to the sea
The waves on the ocean wave bye-bye baby bye

When the rain falls, when the sun sets
When the mountains tumble to the sea
The waves on the ocean wave bye-bye baby bye

When the rain falls, when the sun sets
When the mountains tumble to the sea
When the waves on the ocean wave bye-bye baby bye-bye
