Tanya Donelly — The Wave lyrics

My face has never been one to betray me
It lies when I need it to
It sends out a white blinding light in your eyes
'Till I figure out what I'm gonna do

We meet in the kitchen and roll on the floor
And I look in your face for something restoring
And take from you barely enough for a lifetime of
Holding out on you
Holding out on you

I see my storyline within you
And I see the river rise to meet you
'Cause you started you started
Harnessing the wave

My face has never been one to betray me
It lies when I need it to
But lately it seems you been laughing at me
So I guess you're the one I can't fool

I see my storyline within you
And I see the river rise to meet you
And I see my angel kneel to kiss you
Cause you started you started
Harnessing the wave

You started
You started honey
