Track 5: Waves
My baby broke it off today
and I've got no job
I never dreamed that things could get this way
I've been bummin' hard
So I look up my old buddy
for a great escape
Yeah, he has always been there for me
to chase clouds away
And he calls me
"Hey dude! Hey dude!
We've got a whole day before us
What d' you wanna do?
Well, we can breeze on down to a beachside town
or cruise round by the caves
Your love's in embers
but you must remember
that life always happens in waves
...in waves, ooo, in waves
Well, the sun ain't gonna come today
It looks like rain
and I was hopin' to have some fun today
so I complained
and I looked up my old buddy crusin' round my hood
and he said "Well hey now, don't cry, Johnny
It won't do no good"
We've got our whole lives before us
Watch your attitude
Well, we can't change the sky, or your friends, or the tide
So, bro, your kicks have gotta come from inside
"Hey," he said, "You must understand"
as he kicked his feet round in the sand
That life always happens in waves
ooo, in waves...
