Song Lyrics

Quelle soirée / What an evening
Wow, c’est un privilège d‘être avec vous / It’s a privilege to be with you
Bonne soirée avec Zee Edge / Good evening with Zee Edge

Yeah, a real privilege to play for you tonight and
All over the world, as it happens, and ah
They’re a good looking audience, don’t you think, The Edge?
City of lovers, city of light
Wanna sing this next for, for lovers who’ve lost lovers
This is a song I never quite figure out
What happened to them in the end
I hope they made it
This is Every Breaking Wave
(Song for my first…)

Every breaking wave on the shore
Tells the next one there’ll be one more
And every gambler knows that to lose
Is what you’re really there for
Summer I was fearlessness
Now I speak into an answer phone
Like every falling leaf on the breeze
Winter wouldn’t leave it alone

If you go?
If you go your way and I go mine
Are we so?
Are we so helpless against the tide?
Baby, every dog on the street
Knows that we’re in love with defeat
Are we ready to be swept off our feet
And stop chasing every breaking wave

And every sailor knows that the sea
Is a friend made enemy
And every shipwrecked soul knows what it’s like
To live without intimacy
I thought I heard the captain’s voice
But it’s hard to listen while you preach
Like every broken wave on the shore
This is as far as I could reach

If you go?
If you go your way and I go mine
Are we so?
Are we so helpless against the tide?
Baby, every dog on the street
Knows that we’re in love with defeat
Are we ready to be swept off our feet
And stop chasing
Every breaking wave

The sea knows where are the rocks
And drowning is no sin
You know where my heart is
The same place yours has been
We know that we fear to win
So we end before we begin
Before we begin

If you go?
If you go your way and I go mine
Are we so?
Are we so helpless against the tide?
Baby, every dog on the street
Knows that we’re in love with defeat
Are we ready to be swept off our feet
And stop chasing every breaking wave
Every breaking wave
Every breaking wave
