"The waves" as written by and Cordozar C/long Broadus....
Working in a little ice cream factory
Breathing the air in your small town
And the sun sets down on you now
Fifteen twenty or thirty people
Walking on the street
Together singing songs
And the season changes
There will be new roses

Life goes on
Here and beyond that horizon
It goes on and it changes
And it changes you too
Life goes on
Here and beyond that horizon
It goes on and it changes
And it changes you too

But they've bombed the buildings
And they have killed
You are a pregnant twenty-two year old girl
Left in tears
But your heart is full of hope
Looking in your eyes
Holding his daughter in his arms
After a year he's back
And the war was over
You were still together

Life goes on
Here and beyond that horizon
It goes on and it changes
And it changes you too
Life goes on
Here and beyond that horizon
It goes on and it changes
And it changes you too

Twenty-four years now have gone by
And it's your time to walk your way
You're a dreamer
You're a rebel
And you will suffer and you will fight
And you will sacrifice yourself
But you believed in love
Funny how your man will betray you
And in the meantime your love will save you, you see

Life goes on
Here and beyond that horizon
It goes on and it changes
And it changes you too
Life goes on
Here and beyond that horizon
It goes on and it changes
And it changes you too
Life goes on
Here and beyond that horizon
It goes on and it changes
And it changes you too
Life goes on
Here and beyond that horizon
It goes on and it changes
And it changes you too

    General CommentThis song is classic, not only in the way that it is composed, but also when concerning what it stands for. The narrator is looking for something else; she thinks she may be able to find something else if she sees the world, whatever it may be. But at the end of the day, after all is said and done, she comes back to him, because he is the only one she wants.

    General CommentElisa's voice is miraculous.
    I could listen to her all day.

    -I beleive the song is saying that she is searching for her past, and everything she's lost. She is wondering how she ended up with the person she's with. She searches and searches for what her life could've been like, but all she sees is the person she's withs face. She can't imagine her life any different, as much as she trys to.

    General Commentsuch a beautiful song.

    i think she is looking for something new, something that is more familiar, something she lost over time. but then she gets to the shore and realizes that she can't imagine herself anywhere but with the person she is with, exactly how she is right at that moment.

    My InterpretationOk, so once again I find my life in her lyrics haha.
    It could be about a guy, most likely, but it can also be interpreted a different way.
    If this was a soundtrack to my life, it'd be about me going away next year far away from home (I want to go near the ocean). I can foresee myself thinking the first night (and I'll watch the moon and stars. I'll tell them everything about us) about my life back home and my family.

    I want to get away so badly, to try something new and maybe find something that I've lost. I know I'll miss my family and it will be hard. I just hope I don't have the same ending where I go back home like the song.
