Surf’s Up

The waves are poundin’ on the sand tonight
I wanna to take your hand and make it feel so right
I know I’m ready and I’ll never be like this again
And the sky is trembling and the moon is pale
We’re on the edge of forever and we’re never gonna fail
I know you’re ready and we’re runnin’ on the back of the wind
And my body’s burnin’ like naked wire
I wanna turn on the juice
I wanna fall in the fire
I’m gonna drown in the ocean, in a bottomless sea
I’m gonna give you what I’m hopin’ you’ll be givin’ to me
And when the waves are poundin’ on the sand tonight
I want to take your hand and make it good and make it right
Now the sky is trembling and the moon is pale
We’re on the edge of forever and we’re never gonna fail—no!

How hard?
How hard?
How hard do I gotta try?
—I want all of your love
Surf’s up
—I need it so bad
Surf’s up
—I need it so bad
Surf’s up and so am I
—I gotta give you some love
Surf’s up and so am I....

And my body is burnin’ like naked wire
I wanna turn on the juice
I wanna fall in the fire
I’m gonna drown in the ocean, in the bottomless sea
I’m gonna give you what I’m hopin’ you’ll be givin’ to me
And when the waves are poundin’ on the sand tonight
I want to take your hand and make it good and make it right
Now the sky is trembling and the moon is pale
We’re on the edge of forever and we’re never gonna fail—no!

How hard?
How hard?
How hard do I gotta try?
—I want all of your love
Surf’s up
—I need it so bad
Surf’s up
—I need it so bad
Surf’s up and so am I
—I gotta give you some love
Surf’s up and so am I
Surf’s up and so am I
Surf’s up and so am I....
