Back to The Flood lyrics

The Flood

Turn the lights out in the light house, I saw you coming
Felt the ship wreck, saw the wreckage, I heard you yelling
Just then, that's when I saw your reflection in the sand
Wondering where you were washed up, oh, I ran to the water

I can put my hands down in it
But I won't bring nothing up
Sitting on the shore all day
Waiting on the tide to come

But you can't hold on to water
It fills you up but never stays
It's only good to wash away today

And you're loving me like water
You're slippin' through my fingers' touch
A natural disaster, of love
Bringing on the flood, the flood
You Love me like the flood, the flood, bring it on

Stayed the night out by the beach house, it's all so quiet
Lit a candle by the window so you might find it
Hope you know you'll always have a place to call your home
Still, I can't help but think I could have saved you from drowning

I can put my hands down in it, yeah
But I won't bring nothing up (no)
Sitting on the shore all day
Just waiting for the tide to come

But you can't hold on to water
It fills you up but never stays
It's only good to wash away today

And you're loving me like water
You're slippin' through my fingers' touch
A natural disaster, of love
Bringing on the flood, the flood
You Love me like the flood, the flood, bring it on

I knew the waves were rising
When I felt them all retreating
Went to take a dive in the deep end
Oh, what was I thinking?

But you can't hold on to water
It fills you up but never stays
It's only good to wash away today

And you're loving me like water
You're slippin' through my fingers' touch
A natural disaster, love
Bringing on the flood, the flood
Love me like a flood, a flood, bring it on

Rising and the falling of my tears
Rising and the falling of my tears that fill the ocean
The ocean, the ocean
My tears that fill the ocean, the ocean
