Every breaking wave on the shore
Tells the next one there'll be one more
Every gambler knows that to lose
Is what you're really there for

Somewhere I was fearlessness
Now I'm speaking to an answer phone
Like every flowering leaf on the breeze
Winter wouldn't leave it alone, alone

If you go
If you go your way and I go mine
Are we so
Are we so helpless against the tide
Baby every dog on the street
Knows that we're in love with defeat
Are we ready to be swept off our feet
And stop chasing
Every breaking wave

Every sailor knows that the sea
Is a friend made enemy
And every shipwrecked soul knows what it is
To live without intimacy

I thought I heard the captains voice
It's hard to listen while we preach
Like every broken wave on the shore
This was as far as I could reach

If you go
If you go your way and I go mine
Are we so
Are we so helpless against the tide
Baby every dog on the street
Knows that we're in love with defeat
Are we ready to be swept off our feet
And stop chasing
Every breaking wave

The sea know we're on the rocks
And drowning is no sin
You know my heart is the same place yours has been
We know the fear of winning, so we end before we begin, we begin

If you go
If you go your way and I go mine
Are we so
Are we so helpless against the tide
Baby every dog on the street
Knows that we're in love with defeat
Are we ready to be swept off our feet
And stop chasing
Every breaking wave
