Emoji Of A Wave Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Oh honey
You don't have to try so hard
To hurt me
Don't worry
I been thinking bout you too
What do we do

[Pre-Chorus]
Your heart is where my head should be
The dissonance is killing me
It breaks my heart
It breaks my...

    This one is easy for me. I believe this song is referencing an up and down relationship reflected in one partner who cannot commit and the other partner who rides the waves of the other's indecision. The love between these two is real so the one partner holds on tightly in those times when the other pulls away because they always come back. It breaks the heart of the one who loves unconditionally and continually wishes the other would get past the barriers holding them back from living and loving fully together. I've been there and totally feel this song.

    I think of the wave as a woman on her period and how when she is he just holds on. She gets mean and distant and he imagine the things he wishes she said instead of the reality of what she is actually saying. The wave is the coming and going of menses.

    When I first heard this song I cried. What it means to me is that the person he loves is in a severe depression that they dip in and out of and he's struggling and trying to convince himself that it's ok that's it's eventually gonna be ok Bc of the person she once was and her changing breaks his heart.

    "It's about sitting in a feeling," Mayer explained to Rolling Stone. "There are two levels to the song. One of them is the beautiful destination I go to whenever I hear it, which is Santa Barbara on a rainy, cold day. The other level is just about this part of life and love that my brain doesn't understand: wanting to act to resolve a situation but knowing there's no resolution."

    I think this song is about the strong and complex emotions that each person experiences in a deep and passionate relationship. Some emotions you just have to ride out "and I know when it comes, I just hold on, I just hold on". One thing I learned in therapy is that some feelings (dispair, hopelessness) are waves that I just have to ride out.

    Mayer said it himself.. it's a wave of jealousy he felt for Katie when she is on the road working. What a great song, I totally love it!! Music very well written (as always from John), and relatively easy to play. "GREAT SONG" My fav on the new cd.

    The song is referencing an orgasm. The wave "coming" is a build up leading to a climactic moment between partners. This is why Mayer says he "holds on" when he knows the wave is approaching. The song implies that Mayer has been with this partner before, hence his usage of the terms "it's just a wave," hinting that he has had experienced this euphoric feeling with this partner in the past.
