Wave of You
Surfaces Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Yeah

Where am I supposed to be?
Washed up, pushed out or on my feet
Tell me is this a dream
Or am I stuck in a movie scene?

Daily, lately
I'm spinnin' away so crazy
So baby, just take me

I think I'm caught up in the way I feel 'bout you
I don't know how I can be so drawn into you
I think I'm fallin' in deep
I think I'm caught up in the wave of you, of you, hmm

Oh, upside down, I'm tip-toein' undersea
Lost and found, I hide in a memory
Crossin' lines, am I gonna make it to the other side
Or do I have to chase it?

Oh, I speak loud but don't hear my voice
Ten feet down doesn't feel like choice
Hangin' on to the words you say
But every time I listen I just hear white noise
And all I see are these flashin' lights
Can't hold on while they're passin' by
How many wrongs does it take to right?
How many wrongs does it take to right?

Daily, lately
I'm spinnin' around so crazy
So baby, just take me

I think I'm caught up in the way I feel 'bout you
I don't know how I can be so drawn into you
I think I'm fallin' in deep
I think I'm caught up in the wave of you, of you, hmm

Daily, lately
I'm spinnin' around so crazy
So baby, just take me (oh)

Daily, lately
I'm spinnin' around so crazy
So baby, just take me

I think I'm caught up in the way I feel 'bout you
I don't know how I can be so drawn into you




I think I'm fallin' in deep
I think I'm caught up in the wave of you, of you, hmm

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of SurFaces's song "Wave of You" express a sense of confusion and disorientation. The singer seems to be questioning their place in the world and their relationship with someone special. The opening lines pose a series of questions: "Where am I supposed to be? Washed up, pushed out, or on my feet. Tell me, is this a dream or am I stuck in a movie scene?" This suggests a feeling of uncertainty and a desire for clarity.


As the song progresses, the lyrics describe the feeling of being caught up in the wave of emotions that comes with falling in love: "I think I'm caught up in the way I feel 'bout you, I don't know how I can be so drawn into you, I think I'm fallin' in deep, I think I'm caught up in the wave of you." The metaphor of a "wave" is a powerful one, suggesting the overwhelming power of these emotions and the feeling of being swept away.


The lyrics also touch on themes of loss and confusion. The lines "Ten feet down doesn't feel like choice, hangin' on to the words you say, but every time I listen I just hear white noise" suggest a feeling of being trapped or suffocated, unable to communicate or connect with the person they love.

Dude this has such an early 2000s vibe it's so nostalgic.

I agree, and I love music that give off that vibe.

This is why Surfaces is good. They’re different, and they figured out how to mix pop, relaxing music, and even some glimpses of rap, all into one. They’re perfect!!!
