Lyrics

Every Breaking Wave - U2

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

 

Summer I was fearless

 

Now I speak into an answerphone

Like every fallen leaf on the breeze

 

Winter wouldn't leave it alone, alone

 

If you go

 

If you go your way

and I go mine

 

Are we so

 

Are we so helpless against the tide?

 

Baby, every dog on the street

 

Knows that we're in love with defeat

 

Are we ready to be swept off our feet

 

And stop chasing every breaking wave?

 

Every sailor knows that the sea

 

Is a friend made enemy

 

Every shipwrecked soul knows

what it is

 

To live without intimacy

 

I thought I heard the captain's voice

 

But it's hard to listen

while you preach

Like every broken wave on the shore

 

This is as far as I could reach

 

If you go

 

If you go your way

and I go mine

 

Are we so

 

Are we so helpless against the tide?

 

Baby, every dog on the street

 

Knows that we're in love with defeat

Are we ready to be swept off our feet

 

And stop chasing every breaking wave?

 

The sea knows where all the rocks

Are drowning is an ocean

 

You know where my heart is

The same place that yours has been

We know that we fear the wind

And it's all we have before we begin

 

Before we begin

 

If you go

 

If you go your way

and I go mine

 

Are we so

 

Are we so helpless against the tide?

 

Baby, every dog on the street

 

Knows that we're in love with defeat

Are we ready to be swept off our feet

 

And stop chasing every breaking wave?
