The waves on the shore
Can't be ignored
Soon they're all around you
The cavalry's failed
They've all gone
But you're holding on
Somehow
It's not what you asked for

[Chorus:]
Why
Do you cry in the morning
When the light is just forming
I know you think
I'm just carrying on
But I've been where you're going
And it's not worth knowing
Burning the days and just carrying on

You search for a way
To harvest the pain
'Cause fallout is contagious
And you're in your head
No control
Of what you let go
Sometimes
It's not what you dreamed of

[Chorus]

And after all that you've forgotten
You still don't understand
You think the world broke it's promise
But it just slipped right though your hands

[Chorus]

No more carrying on
The waves on the shore
Can't be ignored
Soon their all around you
