The Raveonettes – Black Wave lyrics
What if your heart rode a black wave
Told you it'd never come back home
What if that wave turned into thunder
Roared and crashed and left you all alone
What if that thunder turned into sunshine
Left you on a beach madly in love
What if that love turned into heartbreak
Left you on that wave where you once were.

What if your girl said she loved you
Told you she'd stay with you forever
What if forever turned into nothing
You saw here drive away in a beat up car.
What if that car turned into a fireball
Across the sky she burned while you just smiled
What if that smile turned into tears
You wiped away the broken dreams and more.

What if your life took a strange turn
Left you bewildered in the night
What if the night turned into day
I guess it always does so let's move on
What if we couldn't move on
I guess I'd rather die than stare at you
But what if death was your best friend
I guess I'd rather go right now than wait.
