dedicated to all the songs/data I lost in the infamous hard-disk crash of '06.


taking a wave from the ocean
and giving it a name
then letting it continue
along its way

you don't know how soon a heart can shatter
on the best of days
or how to let a wild thing slip away

deep water rising
do you know her name
what became of all our tomorrows?
what became of my wave

low budget, down to nothing
and nothing's all i got
nothing's not a lot
to build upon
a house of cards, it's all an illusion
all the best things are
but reality won't let it go that far

deep water rising
do you have no shame?
to forget she ever existed
to forget my wave
