Tidal Wave
oleh: Owl City



I wish I could cross my arms, and cross your mindCause I believe you'd unfold your paper heart and wear it on your sleeveAll my life I wish I broke mirrors, instead of promisesCause all I see, is a shattered conscience staring right back at meI wish I had covered all my tracks completely cause I'm so afraidIs that the light at the far end of the tunnel or just the train?Lift your arms only heaven knows, where the danger growsAnd it's safe to say there's a bright light up ahead and help is on the way(Help is on the way, Help is on the way, Help is on the way...)
Help is on the wayI forget the last time I felt brave, I just recall insecurityCause it came down like a tidal wave, and sorrow swept over me
Depression, please cut to the chase and cut a long story shortOh please be done. How much longer can this drama afford to run?Fate looks sharp, severs all my ties and breaks whatever doesn't bendBut sadly then, all my heavy hopes just pull me back down again(Back down again, back down again, back down again...)
I forget the last time I felt brave, I just recall insecurityCause it came down like a tidal wave, and sorrow swept over meThen I was given grace and love, I was blind but now I can seeCause I found a new hope from above, and courage swept over me
It hurts just to wake up, whenever you're wearing thinAlone on the outside, so tired of looking inThe end is uncertain and I've never been so afraidBut I don't need a telescope to see that there's hopeAnd that makes me feel brave
