"Tsunami" as written by Santi White and Jeremy Lapinsky....
I feel so nice just when you're here
The reason why is not so clear
I knew the first time when you told me
I'd fall in love just as you'd hold me

And now I want to stay at your side tonight
I want to watch you as the sun lights up your eyes
I want to know when you wake first thing you see is me
You're all the things I prayed that I'd meet

Ride, ride this wave of mine
There're brighter things out on the other side
Ride, ride this wave of mine
I know that things are going to be alright

Moments they come and then they go
You'll feel so high and then before you know
I could of sworn our future was set in stone
But I guess some things it's just as well for God to know

So now I concentrate on turning wrong to right
I'm going to let go things I held inside so tight
I'm going to live and let forgive things said in spite
Clear out the smoke and usher in the light

Ride, ride this wave of mine
There're brighter things out on the other side
Ride, ride this wave of mine
I know that things are going to be alright

    "I feel so nice just when you're here
    The reason why is not so clear
    And I knew the first time when you told me
    I'd fall in love just as you hold me"

    She is very in love with someone. Just as he said, she fell in love, and now she feels wonderful around him.

    "And I want to stay at your side tonight,
    I want to watch you as the sun lights up your eyes
    I want to know when you wake first thing you see is me
    'Cuz you're all the things that I pray I need"

    All she wants to do is spend time with him, he's everything she needs, etc. More emphasis on being in love.

    "Ride, ride this wave of mine
    There's brighter things out on the other side
    Ride, ride this wave of mine
    I know that things are gonna be alright"

    Something happened to shake up the relationship, most likely on her part. She's telling him to just ride the wave, in essence, "go with the flow." While things might look dark from where they are now, everything will work out in the end.

    "Moments they come and then they go
    You feel so high, and then before you know
    I could have sworn our future was set in stone
    But, I guess some things are just as well forgotten now"

    Love is so sweet, yet sometimes so temporary. The high she was on came crashing down. She thought that she would always be with this guy, but now she wonders if she should just forget it.

    "So know I concentrate on turning wrong to right
    I gonna let loose things I held inside to die
    I'm gonna live and let forgive may satisfy
    So clear out the smoke and usher in the light"

    Instead she decides to just tell the truth and try to right all her wrongs. Things she's been lying about for a while she'll reveal. By living and forgiving, she'll be able to get rid of all the shadows and skeletons and start living a true life again. By this, she hopes she can save the relationship.

    "Ride, ride this wave of mine
    There's brighter things out on the other side
    Ride, ride this wave of mine
    I know that things are gonna be alright"

    Once again, telling the guy to go with the flow and just let her come clean with him and help right her wrongs. By doing so, she'll help right the relationship as well.

    I guess you could make a huge generalization and have it being not about a guy, but about drugs and coming clean, but I think that's looking way too far into it.

    General CommentIt's about really being in love, and knowing that no matter what, all wrongs will be righted, and everything will turn out ok in the end.
