Polaris – Martyr (waves) Lyrics


[Verse 1]
I’ve been a liar, been a thief, been a fool for you
I’ve been a martyr, been a saint, been a coward
Now there’s nothing left to prove
But I’m at war with all the things that I’m supposed to be
And when I speak it seems that everyone’s expecting me to say what they can’t say
[Chorus]
It comes in waves, that break upon the sand
It comes in waves, to drown this broken man, oh
[Verse 2]
I’ve been a liar, been a thief, been a fool for you
I’ve been through hell, been a traitor to myself
Now I’ve got nothing left to lose
But how can I go on in this electric life? And if they come for me tonight, they won’t take me alive
[Chorus]
It comes in waves, that break upon the sand
It comes in waves, to drown this broken man
And it’s so confusing, the way you’re using me
(I feel like you’re using me)
To speak the words that you lack the strength to say
[Bridge]
I’m giving up on the fairy tale
These dreams bring me nothing but pain
Believe that I meant every single word I said
When I said that when it comes, it comes in waves
[Outro]
I’ve been a liar, been a thief, been a fool for you
I’ve been a giver, but I’ve given all I can to you
