Incoming Waves

Great day for walking among the graves
Watch the sun reflecting on the incoming waves

All I’ve got is time
To think about the moment it went wrong
No chance to put it right
No chance to prove I could be strong

Across the ocean to faraway
Thoughts of you come rolling on the incoming waves

All I’ve got is time
To think about the moment it went wrong
No chance to put it right
No chance to prove I could be strong

All I’ve got is time
To dwell upon the threshhold that you crossed
No chance to put it right
No chance to prove I could be strong
No chance to even fight
No way to salvage what was lost

Great day for walking among the graves

Song Notes

Tim when asked about his favourite song from Islands said:

I love “Incoming Waves”, the very last track on the album. We don’t often play mellow, slower songs but it’s really nice live. It’s a good slow burning one. I was listening to a lot of Sigur Ros when I was writing that one actually. I liked their way they have a motif running through a song, with chord changes underneath it. So I just started with a piano line and wrote the song underneath.

The track was debuted live at the Mercury Lounge in New York on September 14th 2018 during the bands US Islands tour.
