Lyrics

the wave

Written By: julie frost

my love is an ocean and the shoreline is my skin
so take a deep breath and lets go for a swim
the weight and the speed and the beat is my heart
all things come together and all things fall apart
a rising tide, a kiss goodnight it's just a wave

my love is an ocean and my skin is the shore
and nothing you left is where it was before
the mail's on the table and the key is in the door
the treasure, the shipwreck is asleep on the floor
a rising tide
a storm inside

I've got a love that's deep
as a dead man's sleep
would you like a little more?
yeah it's sharp and steep
but it's the kind you keep
I'll take you right down on the floor
when you dive into the riptide
baby when you wash up on the sand
tell me do you want to be my lover?
tell me do you want to be my man
tell me do you want to be my man?
it's just a wave

My love is an ocean and the shoreline is my skin
let's sail to the island and back home again
my stranger, my sailor, my lover my friend
can we wash this mistake up and try it again?
a rising tide...
it's a wild ride

I've got a love that's deep
as a dead man's sleep
would you like a little more?
yeah, it's sharp it's steep
but it's the kind you keep
I'll take you right down on the floor
and when you've been adrift forever
baby just dreaming of dry land
tell me do you want to be my lover
tell me do you want to be my man?
tell me do you want to be my man?
tell me do you want to be my man?
because it's just a wave
it's just a wave
it's just a wave
it's just a wave

life after you

Written By: Julie Frost

Tell me what do you see?
In this look on my face and I'm pacing the floor
Look what happened to me
You don't love me no more
Tell me what should I do?
in this half empty place that you're not anymore
look what happened to you...
when you walked out the door

I watch you go
where are you going? you look like you know
you're hoping to see, what?
the size of, the shape of, the look of your life after me?
your life after me

Tell me when did you know?
no matter, no difference, no this time for sure
it was time to let go
of this half of my heart, this half of my head, the top dresser drawer and your side of the bed..
I watch you go
where are you going, you look like you know
You're hoping to see, what?
the size of, the shape of, the look of your life after me
I'm still pacing the floor
still got your shirt on my door
dear god, what can I do?
I'm still praying for life after you..
life after you

Don't ask if I'm ok
do you still see my face everywhere I see yours?
Tell me what should I say?
I suppose I'll wish you well one day

Shining Star

Written By: Julie Frost

Life ain't so unfair love
you've got to take care of
all the things you really are

Heaven knows you're weary
Heaven can see clearly
Heaven's never really far...

So deep stark, so cold dark the night
one shining star

One thing to be sure of
did you know that true love
never let's you fall....too far

Baby when it's over
you will know that you were
born under a lucky star

so deep stark, so cold dark the night
one shining star
and that's what you are
ooooh a shining star
that's what you are

One shining star

Things that make you blue, love
are things you can see through love
baby that is just the way things are

You're not really lonely
night time's really only
there to hold up shining stars

So deep stark, so cold dark the night

One shining star
(and that's what you are)
