Lyrics
Throw me all around like a boomerang sky
Whatever you do, don’t tell me why
Poppies grow tall then say bye bye
The wave is here

A seemless little team and then we tanked
I guess we’re not so sacrosanct
The tip of my tongue but then we blanked
The wave is here

Waiting on the wind to tell my side

Ready set jet but she never gets far
Listen to your skin from the seat of my car
Two centipedes stuck in one glass jar
The longest wave

Waiting on the wind to tell my side

What you want?
What you need?
Do you love?

Maybe I’m the right one, maybe I’m the wrong
Just another play, the pirate and the papillon
Time to call it a day

Maybe you’re my last love, maybe you’re my first
Just another way to play inside the universe
Now I know why we came

Sterile as the barrel of an old 12 gage
Under my skin and half my age
Hotter than the wax on a saxifrage
The longest wave

Waiting on the wind to turn my page

Steady your sails for the butterfly flap
Whatever you do, don’t close that gap
I’m dreaming of a woman but she’s just my nap
Your ship is in

Waiting on the tide so I can swim

What you want?
What you need?
Do you love?

Maybe I’m the right one, maybe I’m the wrong
Just another play, the pirate and the papillon
Time to call it a day

Maybe you’re my last love, maybe you’re my first
Just another way to play inside the universe
Now I know why we came

Now I know why we came
Now I know
