Waterproof

It’s time you finally knew the truth
Love was designed to be waterproof
No use, child, to ask me why
First you love and then you cry

Love so gentle, love so mean
Burst into tears, you make a scene
You get dirty, you get clean
The heart’s a four-chambered washing machine

Chorus

As long as I can remember
My dream was to live by the sea
Washes over me

Storm clouds gather, skies are grey
Sun’s gone on a holiday Live life like a drop of rain
Fall and then you rise again

So let the rain fall where it may
Puddle jump it, that’s okay
Rolls off your back, you won’t get wet
Roll with the punches, better yet

Chorus

As long as I can remember
In cold winter showers
Time, that marvelous mender
In spring, it brings the flowers

It’s time you finally knew the truth
Love was designed to be waterproof
Eat that fruit right off the vine
First you’re loving, then you’re crying

Chorus

As long as I can remember
That tides will reach the shore
Love’s many splendors
Will carry me back once more

Chorus

As long as I can remember
My dream was to live by the sea
Your love so soft, warm and tender
Washes over me
Love was designed to be
Waterproof

I knew I was gonna go to college because nobody in my family had, not on my mother’s side.
