Tom Chaplin – The Wave

Tom Chaplin – The Wave

[Verse 1]
Flotsam and Jetsam
Always at the mercy of the ocean
Drawn on the trade winds
Gathered up and swallowed by the motion
High hopes and young dreams
Unrequited love, misplaced devotion

[Pre-Chorus]
Time will sweep these things away
And I’ll be carried by the wave
[Chorus]
Carried by the wave
Carried by the wave
My soul surrendered by the undertow
Driven by the tide
I’m headed for the shore
These lonely, scattered pieces heading home

[Verse 2]
Caught on the high wire
Quarry for the demons down below
Held in slow motion
Frozen by the thought of letting go

[Pre-Chorus]
Time will sweep these things away
And I’ll be carried by the wave

[Chorus]
Carried by the wave
Carried by the wave
My soul surrendered by the undertow
Driven by the tide
I’m headed for the shore
These lonely, scattered pieces heading home

[Outro]
Like it was before
Joined forever more
These lonely, scattered pieces heading home
Heading home
Heading home
