Every Breaking Wave (Early Version – Live From Helsinki 2010)

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

Somewhere else fearlessness
Now I speak into an answer phone

Like every silent leave on the breeze
Winter wouldn’t leave it alone

Hey now, hey now
I don’t know if I’m that strong
I don’t know if I’m that strong
I don’t know if I’m that strong
To be somebody
To need someone

Every sailor knows that the sea
Is a friend-made-enemy
Every shipwrecked soul knows what it is
To live without and to receive

I thought I heard the master’s voice
It’s hard to listen while you preach

Like every broken wave on the shore
This was as far as I can reach

Hey now, hey now
I don’t know if I’m that strong
I don’t know if I’m that strong
I don’t know if I’m that strong
To be somebody
To need someone

The waves know where are the rocks
And drowning is no sin
And you know my heart is
In the same place yours has been
And we know the fear of winning
So we end before we begin

The waves know where are the rocks
And drowning is no sin
You know my heart is
The same place yours has been
And we know the fear of wind
Should end before we begin
