We could dance all night out on the back porch if you let me get my radio.
Call all your friends and tell them you met a prince --
he says someday he might like to treat you like a queen.

I've been in love before -- it never felt like this
so I'll take it back like those things I said before
I didn't mean it and you know what I mean
you've grown as cold as a stone
but you move me with your motion like a stream
yeah....

I'll ride your waves 'til it crashes -- I will.
I'll burn your fire til it's ashes and ashes are
all I can ask of you
is that you not forget about me.

You be the gun, I'll be the trigger finger;
we'll start a war and back and forth, bullets pour
Yeah well..
Someone told me that your love was invincible.
-- sounded crazy -- now I live by the principle.
You know I believe it, 'cause you made me believe it.

And I'll ride your wave til it crashes; I will.
I'll burn your fire til it's ashes and ashes are
all I can ask of you
is that you not forget about me.

Please pardon my invasion
think I'd like a conversation to let you know I've fallen for you, love.
I have no hesitations 'cause I have a reservation to take you by the hands tonight.
Please pinch me if I'm dreaming; I'm staring at the ceiling wondering if I'm alive.

And I'll ride your wave til it crashes; I will.
I'll burn your fire til it's ashes and ashes are
all I can ask of you
is that you not forget about me.

And I'll ride your wave til it crashes; I will.
I'll burn your fire til it's ashes and ashes are
all I can ask of you
is that you stay sound in your sleep, love.

Yeah let this sweet song guide you into the surest shorelines
and I will away you
Please just take your time.

    General CommentSuch a great song. I think this is a song about a relationship that neither he or her have hope will last. But, moakler still believes in her and how he feels about her, and he's willing to go with it even if it crashes on the shore.

    General CommentAgreed. The relationship is running thin but he hopes for the best and hopes she will too.
