COVER of Dinosaur Feather's "Family Waves" -


I got a secret that nobody knows
And when I am sleeping the story will grow
Out of my heart dear and into the air
It tells me to follow, but I wouldn't dare
I know if I do, it will lead me right back to your door

On your own...
Pull us together
Pull us apart
Follow the weather
Follow your heart
You'll find me there on the shore
Fighting the family waves.
And nothing changes
It stays the same
After fifteen months
It's still your name that's on my lips
Until we get a chance to get back together

The tide has been shifting for years upon years
Everyone knew but it fell on deaf ears
By the time we discovered, it was too late
Cast ourselves out as the victims of fate
But now we realize the power was ours all along.


And I can't stand the thought
The feeling of his heartbeat next to yours
But no one knows what's said behind closed doors
There's nothing but sorry's..

We dream of something good
But nothing ever turns out like it should
We're falling through the cracks where we once stood
There's nothing but sorry's...
But sorry's brought you here.

(Family waves are coming)
and I'm diving deep inside of it
(Family waves are coming)
and you're running at the sight of it
(Family waves are coming)
and I'm dreaming of our sons and daughters
(Family waves are coming)
and you're heading for the open waters

On your own
On your own
On your own
On your own
On your own
Fighting the family waves.
