"Tidal Wave" as written by Adam R. Young and Matthew Arnold Thiessen....
Take me down in a tidal wave
Take me down when I'm wired
The hardest thing you ever gave away
Is the hardest thing to keep
I am everything you wanted
I am everything you wanted
I am everything you need
Take me back to the other place
Take me back when I'm alone
I can see all the little things that once could make me whole
I am everything you wanted
I am everything you wanted
I am everything you need
But I can feel it again
I am everything you wanted
I am everything you need
Give me the colors of a different light
Give me the colors grey and blue
Everything you ever hoped to be is when the colors bleed
I am everything you wanted
I am everything you wanted
I am everything you wanted
Everything you wanted
Everything you wanted
Everything you wanted

    General Commentdoesn't take a neurosurgeon to realize it's about unrequited love...not that many neurosurgeons listen to longwave...but...anyway...i don't think he ever had this girl...seems to me he's sitting here...being friends with her...playing the prototypical "platonic guy who cares" role for this chick...he watches as she gives her heart to someone else...someone who's really not right for her...and this guy knows it...and he also knows he IS right for her...he's what she's searching for...he sees how they COULD be together and happy...but...now...that's not going to happen...because she's given love to that other guy...same story we've all heard a million times in different ways...but it sounds better coming out of this band...

    General CommentI love longwave. They're my second favorite band. Yep. But enough about how great they are, what does this song mean. i think it's about someone he loved. He was perfect for her but aparently she didn't think so. And he's just feeling it all over again. Yea, but thats my opinion. Lates.

    General CommentI saw the lead singer dude (sorry can't think of his name) play an acoustic set at criminal records last week and this song really effected me in a way it hadn't on the album version. This and "Everywhere You Turn" really sounded incredible acoustic, but then again, they sound incredible anyway...

    General CommentIt's pretty apparent. I like the line "But I can feel it again"... it's hopeful. Man, his voice is great. He could sing anything and I'd love it.
