a short site about The Divine Comedy

New Wave

Original version (3:44)

From the suicide solution
To the velvet revolution
Has there ever been a time
More unquestionably mine?
From the free-love generation
To the student demonstrations
I have never felt the way I feel today,
Hey hey hey hey.

I ride the wave,
You ride it too.
We’ll ride the wave
All the way through.
In from the cold,
Out of the blue,
Drowning the old
To make way for the new.

From a nation’s separation
To its reunification
Has there ever been a time
More rightfully mine?
From the cod war
To the cold war
I have done what I’ve been told
For far too long,
That is to say until today,
Hey hey hey hey.

I ride the wave.
You ride it too.
Forgive our foolish ways,
We know not what we do.

From the suicide solution
To the velvet revolution
There has never been a time
More unquestionably mine.
From generation to generation -
A worldwide landslide celebration -
I’ve never felt the way I feel today.
I ride the wave.
