Verse 1

Your pictures are still there on my screen,

Our smiles light up the full fourteen inch.

I've been trying to make my hopes crush.

That wrist band is now covered in dust.

Now you're just a long gone ex.

And I'm scared of what happens next.

Chorus

Every single wave that recedes,

Takes away a little sand from under my feet.

Every single time it rains down,

Washes away a little color from my town.

Every single day

That passes this way

Makes me lose a part of me.

You're a part of me, baby.

Verse 2

You had walked in playing your banjo.

And my heart rushed to do the tango.

I should have seen how mismatched we were.

Never in sync, no hope for repairs,

No hope for reconciling.

The memories keep on piling.

Chorus

Every single wave that recedes,

Takes away a little sand from under my feet.

Every single time it rains down,

Washes away a little color from my town.

Every single day

That passes this way

Makes me lose a part of me.

You're a part of me, baby.

Bridge

You're a part of me

That I'll never get back.

No shooting star, no wishing well,

Can change the ending of our fairytale.

Chorus

Every single wave that recedes,

Takes away a little sand from under my feet.

Every single time it rains down,

Washes away a little color from my town.

Every single day

That passes this way

Makes me lose a part of me.

You're a part of me, baby.
