You are the calmest wave that I've ever known, you are the calmest wave
When you stop coming into shore, nobody knows but I'll be on way

My mood moves like the tide
A storm that builds inside of me
And if you ever vanish off the map, nobody knows but I'll be on my way

Hibernate til I'm on form again, the world can wait another year
Hibernate til I'm ok again, the tidal waves can't follow me here

So i came here to the island, I braved the stormy seas
The air is clean and it's silent, far from such tragedies
The sun sets better than a painting, it calms my eyes with ease
But it's the saddest skiy that I've ever seen
