Stand Against the Waves

Lyrics from a concept album that's taken me almost two years to write. Hope you can all see the narrative thread. It's all basically about leaning to be happy, and to enjoy life.

They tell me now that

I’ve got to leave

There’s not much more that

I can receive

I need to go and

Learn to achieve

It’s time to stop being

So damn naive

 

So I go

Cut all ties, and become my own man

See through the lies, outsmart them if I can

Gotta stay hopeful, and trust in the dawn

Gotta stand against the waves

 

I set down the road

Not ever looking back

I’ll learn my goal

And gain what I lac

I’ll do it on my own

Don’t need anyone

I choose my own way

And set for the sun

 

So I go

Cut all ties, and become my own man

See through the lies, outsmart them if I can

Gotta stay hopeful, and trust in the dawn

Gotta stand against the waves

 

I’ll stand against the waves

I’ll stand against the waves

I’ll stand against the waves

I’ll stand against the waves

The End
