Wash Over Me

You can always find me running down empty streets
Watching the world go by, from a thousand miles away
Beautiful children sell postcards and gum
I try to escape but it’s too hot to run

It was too hot to run

A lifetime of hope, outside my window
A chance to say goodbye, a chance to say hello
Lost in a crowd, of familiar faces, those beautiful faces
They all look like me

What if I was right and I could be next,
I would forgive them my heart needs a rest

Oh waves of emotion crashed on the sand
I’m a lost twenty-something born without a name
And I’ll be waiting this time, I’ve been waiting this time
Come wash over me

Come wash over me
Come wash over me

Fear exists in the eyes of strangers
And there was so much more that I wanted to say
I’ve lived a fortunate beautiful life
And I’ll never forget those hot summer night when the rain came down
To wash over me, come and wash over me.

Oh waves of emotion crashed on the sand
I’m a lost twenty-something tell me my name
And I’ll be waiting this time; I’ve been waiting this time
Come wash over me

Come and wash over me
Just let your love, come wash over me
Come wash over me
Just let your love wash away the tears
After all of these years
