Waves Lyrics

There is a swelling storm
And I'm caught up in the middle of it all
And it take control
Of the person that I thought I was
The boy I used to know

There is a light in the dark
and I feel its warmth
In my hands, in my heart
Why can't I...

    I Think this song is about depression. And how it can take control of us and how if we get ourselves out of depression we think that its as the song says "A feeling I thought was set in stone" but then depression "slips through our fingers" as we're "Trying hard to let go, it comes and goes in waves. Depression comes and goes in waves and carries us away. And I also think the song talks about how we are not the same happy child we one were because depression has taken over. "We watch as our young hearts fade into the flood"

    the song is about how exciting life is when your a kid and when you grow up the excitement in life fades away. "it comes and goes in waves it always does" here i think he is talking about how the excitement goes away as you get older. "we watch as our young hearts fade into the flood" most people mistake this as relationship problems or a failed relationship but in reality he is talking about our young child-like life slowly fades into adulthood.

    "There is a swelling storm
    And I'm caught up in the middle of it all
    And it takes control
    Of the person that I thought I was
    The boy I used to know"

    it´s about a relationship that started at a young age and now is going through a crisis and the singer did something or reacted in a way that makes them not recognise themselves.

    But there, is a light
    In the dark, and I feel its warmth
    In my hands, and my heart
    Why can't I hold on?

    they see hope for, but can´t hold on to it

    It comes and goes in waves
    It always does, it always does
    We watch as our young hearts fade
    Into the flood, into the flood

    the feelings about the relationship come an go as they "grow up" and lose innocence

    The freedom, of falling
    A feeling I thought was set in stone
    It slips through, my fingers
    I'm trying hard to let go

    they thought what they used to feel was a certain thing, but now they're suddenly free and having a hard time letting the past go

    It comes and goes in waves
    It comes and goes in waves
    And carries us away

    they get better and worse as in waves, but these waves start taking away what they used to have.

    Through the wind
    Down to the place we used to lay when we were kids
    Memories, of a stolen place
    Caught in the silence
    An echo lost in space

    they reminisce about old times, when they were together, but it's just an echo now, because doesn't exist anymore

    I watched my wild youth
    Disappear in front of my eyes
    Moments of magic and wonder
    It seems so hard to find
    Is it ever coming back again?
    Is it ever coming back again?
    Take me back to the feeling when
    Everything was left to find

    they spent their youth together, and now it's over and they're not so young anymore, and don't have that person, and don't know if they'll ever feel something like that again.
