lyrics

We are all born innocent
Makes you wonder where it went
The dollars and the days you spend
Are handed back in change
Oh, the mystery is not a myth
You may catch a glimpse of it
How and when you can’t predict
It slips away again

It comes in waves
Ebb and flow, unexpected
The times you’re brave
And the ones you just let pass
It’s safe to say
The wind will change direction
Live like it’s your first day
and love like it’s your last

Songs will come in the pitch of night
I scramble for a pen to write
Then it’s up to me to get it right
Like any other dream
Surrending, bending words appear
Like leaves descending on the air
The branches become cold and bare
It's never evergreen

It comes in waves
Heaven knows it's unexpected
Sometimes you cave
Sometimes you’re bold as brass
It’s safe to say
The wind will change direction
Live like it’s your first day
and love like it’s your last

There is nothing wrong with me
When I long for community
There is no one without three
It’s as natural as can be
Love will come out of the blue
Without a warning or a clue
Then the rest is up to you
Like any other dream

It comes in waves
Ebb and flow, unexpected
Sometimes you save your soul
Sometimes you save your ass
It’s safe to say
The wind will change direction
Live like it’s your first day
and love like it’s your last
