COLIN SMITH

LYRICS:

(VERSE)
WE USED TO SWIM AT SUNSET
IN THE GULF OF MEXICO
WE'D DRIVE A VW VAN
TO LOUISIANA
THAT WAS A LONG LONG TIME AGO
THE WATER USED TO BE BLUE
AND THE WORLD HAD ROOM TO GROW
WHEN BEING BORN IN THIS LAND
MEANT WE ALL HAD A CHANCE
THAT WAS A LONG LONG TIME AGO

(CHORUS)
THERE'S A BLACK WAVE COMING
DARKNESS DROWNING OUT THE LIGHT
THERE'S A BLACK WAVE COMING
FORTY DAYS AND FORTY NIGHTS

(VERSE)
THERE'S NO ONE LEFT TO RUN FROM
AND THERE'S NO PLACE LEFT TO HIDE
WE GOT OUR BACKS TO THE WALL
AND THE PRESSURE KEEPS GROWING
NOW WE CAN'T STOP THE COMING TIDE
IS THIS THE WAY THE WORLD ENDS
WITH A WHIMPER HELD INSIDE
OR DO WE SHOUT OUT A CALL
WHILE THE VIOLIN'S STRUMMING
BEFORE THE FIRE SPREADS TOO WIDE

(CHORUS)
THERE'S A BLACK WAVE COMING
DARKNESS DROWNING OUT THE LIGHT
THERE'S A BLACK WAVE COMING
FORTY DAYS AND FORTY NIGHTS
THERE'S A DEATH KNELL DRUMMING
WE ALL KNOW THE REASON WHY
BLACK WAVE'S HERE
AND THERE'S NO TIME LEFT TO CRY

(BRIDGE)
WHEN DID WE DECIDE TO GIVE IT ALL AWAY
WE THREW AWAY OUR PRIDE
AND CAST OUR WORLD ASTRAY
DIGGING DEEP INSIDE
OUR MOTHERS HEART EACH DAY
HER WELL WILL SOON RUN DRY
IF WE DON'T CHANGE

(CHORUS)
THERE'S A BLACK WAVE COMING
DARKNESS DROWNING OUT THE LIGHT
THERE'S A BLACK WAVE COMING
FORTY DAYS AND FORTY NIGHTS
THERE'S A DEATH KNELL DRUMMING
WE ALL KNOW THE REASON WHY
BLACK WAVE'S HERE
AND THERE'S NO TIME LEFT TO CRY
