Lyrics

Sad To Watch You Wave
(Eric Peters, Ben Shive)

You cry at the movies and at the drop of someone’s tears
You are a lion to protect me all these years
I’m a suitcase in the window of a train
You’re the kiss blown from the platform in the rain

It’s so sad, it’s so sad to watch you wave
It’s so sad, it’s so sad to watch you wave goodbye

I’m no good, no good at being alone
Somehow miles become a pale and curious home
It’s so sad to feel the cold and empty space
Between good fortune and the fortunate embrace

It’s so sad, it’s so sad to watch you wave
It’s so sad, it’s so sad to watch you wave
All we have, all we have is this good day

As the hair on our heads begins to gray
I hear your laugh and its sound is no small grace

But it’s still so sad, it’s so sad to watch you wave
It’s so sad, it’s so sad, it’s so sad to watch you
