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 answerphone
Like every flowering leaf on the breeze
Winter wouldn't leave it alone

Hey now
Hey now

I don't know if I'm that strong
I don't know if I'm that strong
Don't know if I'm that strong
To be somebody to need someone

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

Hey now
Hey now

I don't know if I'm that strong
I don't know if I'm that strong
Don't know if I'm that strong
Enough to be somebody who needs someone

The waves 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

Oh oh oh oh...
Oh oh oh oh...

The waves 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
