Wolfe, Chelsea - The Waves Have Come Lyrics




The pain forms a circle
with a light at the center
I can see it from here the end is coming
and all the wait, it was for nothing

I covered you in royal jelly
I made you queen and you forgave me
we'll be given the world in the right time
but we made our own and left it empty

This will be ours
'cause we're the concept
and we're the flawed
and we're the answer

You said to me it won't be long now
you'll leave the world and you will join me here
my flesh is afraid but I am not
cause love now is only the pain of needing
They took your smell, they took your shadow
and I'm searching through faces for someone familiar
I clawed and I clawed but I couldn't find you there
you wouldn't wake I couldn't sleep for years

This will be ours
'cause we're the the concept
and we're the flawed
and we're the answer
and we're the stars
it won't be long now
it will be ours
it will be ours

Creation was the only word
that made you feel you never were
an endless hope is all it was
and holding sacred all were
and don't forsake the way we were
and don't tell me you never would
and we don't need physical things
to make us feel and make us dream
when earth cracks open and swallows then
we'll never be tired again
and we'll be given everything
the moment we realize we're not in control
and all you know gets older when
the sun goes down and everything
begins to fade away the waves
have come and taken you to sea

Never to return to me

    I have for ages been searching for something like Chelsea Wolfe that would accompany me on darker days away from my usual clatter such as Neurosis, Isis, Pelican etc. etc. Some strong, powerful girl vocal with heavy themes and brilliant backing. Tori Amos and Sarah Blasko (Aus) are great, but just were not hitting the right spot. The discovery of CW has blown me away and redefined my music tastes. I am kinda angry at my friends for not knowing who she is and therefore not introducing me far earlier. She's a genius.

  4. Dorypowa

    this song + the one on Virginia Woolf are a great tribute to her life and words. Your song is stunning, I love it

  5. Daniel Barker

    The waves have come and taken you to sea never to return to me

  6. Magdalena Ledwon

    Ale to jest piękne ... ❤️

  7. CoolJay14745

    One of the few songs that just evokes so much raw emotion and leaves you speechless.

  8. ifeltthelight

    This song hurts

  9. Steven Dalmida

    01/18/2019 "The 100" brought me here!

  10. Star Gazer

    What are the lyrics about??

    matthew barclay

    I believe her mother passed away when Chelsea was young. Little Graves, another example. Im uncertain but I believe now this may be true

  11. Kristen Noelle

    I'm here....that's all I know

  12. esraa omar

    Is there’s anyone here from (the 100) series????????

  13. Strepor

    I love you and i mean it

  14. Kamii04231

    This song is just beautiful... Can't stop to listen to it 😢❤

    Laurie Poirier

    Same, and it makes me cry everytime, but still I wanna listen to it !

  15. Christina Jones

    Damnit Chelsea, give me my soul back.

  16. pujaenk

    The 100👋

  17. Amanda sz

    Bellamy 💕

  18. Martyna Wilczewska

    AMAZING!!!!!

  19. Tanisha M

    They took your smell, they took your shadow
    and I'm searching through faces for someone familiar
    I clawed and I clawed but I couldn't find you there
    you wouldn't wake I couldn't sleep for years


    And that, my friends, is why pain is beauty.

  20. cristian pacini

    ...and we don't need physical things
    to make us feel and make us dream.

  21. S P H 3 R 3 S

    am i the only one who has captured the innate meaning of this song? looking thru the comments would suggest so. its about how important it is to appreciate everything you have in the moment cuz at any time it could be taken away... never to return

    detail.movie

    Judging by the name of the song, I interpret it not as "could be taken away" but as "will be taken away."

  22. S P H 3 R 3 S

    looking thru the comments... does no one get the innate meaning of this song? the pain of knowing all you had in the moment was all you ever wanted but it was taken away and you never got the chance to appreciate it cuz u were too selfish to understand what was happening in ur life. too busy looking at the past, too busy looking at the future... that u missed out completely and by the time u realised it was too late... all was gone... it was all taken away by forces outside of ur control... am i the only one who gets it? maybe cuz im the one who lived it

    matthew barclay

    The lyical content of this song AND Little Graves have left me to conclude Chelsea lost her mother at a young age thought im factually uncertain but it makes sense to me

  23. Kenobi

    Wielmożny

  24. Beth K

    Fuck. This song gets me every time😢

    WTF is the 100?

  31. кролика родзинка

    wow that second verse killed me 😭 I was not expecting that!

  32. Jared Bly

    I came here because I like Chelsea Wolfe but also it seems I have some masochistic predisposition to subjecting myself to people's painfully idiotic comments about what garbage TV show brought them here.

  33. Marry Grant

    Wielmożny Igor brought me here

  34. Erin Nylander

    This song is absolutely haunting. Pain, beauty, love, loss... I feel each of them every time I hear it.

  62. Roberto L

    Being a metalhead for ages with some non-metal-days here and there... But THIS hits hard. There's not much music out there that moves me like C.W. Absolutely stunning, outstanding, supreme and what not... Glad I discovered her.

    Mari Nakesawa

    I love metal too. I think CW and metal share some elements of the macabre.

    Justin Kroboth

    Hard agree, friend - Chelsea Wolfe transcends genres. She's a goddamn queen.

  63. 1978nikolai1978

    not bad )))

  64. Pagan Franc

    RIP Finn :(

  67. silenthillmaster755

    shes very Zola Jesus and thats incredible

    Chris TBTP

    +silenthillmaster755 Chelsea > Zola Jesus

    Emme Cee

    silenthillmaster755 Listened to Zola Jesus, not at all the same. Just because they’re both female who sing dark music doesn’t make them the same.

    thisisFMCT

    M. Cota Zola Jesus' first albums sound very much like Chelsea's music. It's not just becaise it's dark. But Zola has deviated a lot from her first songs

  68. Larissa Sousa

    I find so much poetry in this song. 

  69. Iloovecereal

    wtf's The 100?

    Karen Dueñas

    A T.V. series, it's really good, check it out :)

    cochi256

    @karen dueñas and what would be the connection between that and the song?

    Karen Dueñas

    The used it as soundtrack in one of the episodes :)

    cochi256

    @karen dueñas cool! must see it then

    PistonAvatarGuy

  75. paradoxInhalte

    what is the 100? iam from germany

    Morgane Delchet

    it's a tv serie !

    thenightwolfess

    It's a show that happens about 100 years in the future after nuclear warfare destroyed the human race and the only survivors were those in the space stations.  100 criminal adolescents, some young adults, and even some children are sent down to the ground to see if its inhabitable.  The show is their story as they face challenges to survive on the ground.  The show gets better after the first few episodes and is still in it's 1st season, going on season 2 soon!

  86. Journey Castillo

    so gorgeous. pain is beauty is on my list of favorite albums of all time.

  87. Bekah Kolbe

    Chelsea Wolfe has captured sorrow and serenaded it until it whispered to her the secrets of its nature. She then, I imagine, softly sobbing, emptied her soul into this song.

    S P H 3 R 3 S

    because Chelsea Wolfe knows real life

  88. Angel Ito

    The waves have come and taken you to sea, never to return to me.

    Too much to handle. Thanks Chelsea!

  89. viki vik

    sometimes a song is so great that it can't possibly get any better....this one does

  90. BHITTER9

    Words can't express what this song does to me...amazing

  91. soundtrack1991

    The imagery of this and The Warden is just amazing. Einfach geil

  92. MrWallow 7

    Listen up and listen well fellow brothers and sisters with broken hearts and mangled spirits.

    Her voice is that of our promise. The promise that we will one day know happyness and that there is beauty in the pain we suffered. And that there is a point to future strife.

    Embrace it. Don't fear it. Relish it. For Pain is the ultimate teacher. The ultimate character builder. Pain is Beauty
