head above the waves lyrics – john waite

you quit the band and got a job
decided to take a wife
then you stood still
and i went on
and almost lost my life
no i don’t wanna be in your shoes
and i don’t wanna read local news
and though i know we had the same views
who’s the fool?
try and keep your head above the waves
try and tell yourself that you’re safe
i know you do your best to keep faith
so round and round we go
it’s a shame
oh but you never know
there you go praised again
your head pressed against the gl*ss
you always tried to put me down
but i knew that it couldn’t last
cause i don’t wanna be in your shoes
and i don’t wanna read local news
and though i know we had the same views
who’s the fool
try ‘n keep your head above the waves
try and tell yourself that you’re safe
i know you do your best to keep faith
so try and keep your head above the waves
oh, feels so good
yeah yeah yeah yeah
i knew it would
oh it just don’t mean that much anymore oh
