waves lyrics – yeasayer

can you feel it?
making waves
the bubbles churn
and curls turn
on a perm that doesn’t fade

like the wheels on a motorcade
like the star of a float parade
like it’s time to celebrate
like grandma’s herbs that smell so great

can you feel it?
it’s in your bones
clock ticks; an annoying german
on a cellular telephone

like the thought of getting old
in a cemetery home
those are things i shoulda known
i’ll find the wave or ride alone
