John Waite – Head Above The Waves lyrics
You quit the band and got a job
Decided to take a wife
Then you stood still
And I went on
And almost lost my life
No I don't wanna be in your shoes
And I don't wanna read local news
And though I know we had the same views
Who's the fool?
Try and keep your head above the waves
Try and tell yourself that you're safe
I know you do your best to keep faith
So round and round we go
It's a shame
Oh but you never know
There you go praised again
Your head pressed against the glass
You always tried to put me down
But I knew that it couldn't last
Cause I don't wanna be in your shoes
And I don't wanna read local news
And though I know we had the same views
Who's the fool
Try 'n keep your head above the waves
Try and tell yourself that you're safe
I know you do your best to keep faith
So try and keep your head above the waves
Oh, feels so good
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
I knew it would
Oh it just don't mean that much anymore oh
