Song of the week

As I was on my way to Starbucks for a mocha latte and some book time, Waves by Blondefire played.  I heard this song when it first came out and I enjoyed the chorus and the upbeat melody.  Sirius XM Alt Nation started playing it frequently so I started hearing the lyrics:

 You hear them when you try to fall asleep

They crash to the shore, they come from the deep

As sure as the sun will rise, the sun will set

You taste the salt the closer you get

Waves
Picking you up

Pushing you down

They’re always around

Waves
Just like dream

Silver and green

We live in between

They can carry you all the way to me
They can pull you out to the deep blue sea

Oh waves, there are waves

Empires will crumble to the sand
All that you love can slip through your hand

But you must face the ocean once again

Follow the tides, wherever you’ve been

The meaning to this song for me has changed over the years.  At first I thought it explained life with it’s ups and down, good days and bad.  Go with the flow.  Once my oldest son passed away, the meaning became more personal.  We rode many waves, huge tidals or everyday waves in dealing with his Muscular Dystrophy.  So much felt like a dream and still does at times.  I have days when I feel close to him and days when I feel the tidal wave that took him away from me. 

Blondefire has positive, clean lyrics with mostly upbeat songs.  It’s hard to feel grumpy when I listen to them.  I hope you enjoy the music video.  Please feel free to comment if you feel a special connection to this awesome tune.

  1. Much like the waves of sound, that penetrate so deeply within us – bringing joy, remorse, serenity, love, and so much more. It moves up and down like a continuous wave. I enjoyed this tune.
