"That Wave" is a song by Andy Partridge. It appeared on the 1992 album Nonsuch.

QuotesEdit

Andy: “Falling in love. When I was a kid I remember dashing into the sea with these massive breakers and was struck unconscious. To this day I'm very frightened of the sea. Love too is frightening - and marvellous.”

Andy (on the demo): “Cut back to the home demo. A song where I hoped to distill the huge overpowering nature of both love and the sea. But you got that straight away didn't you? For guitarzans out there, the tuning to use, in ascending order, is E G D G B E. Now you've no excuses why you can't find the chords.”

LyricsEdit

That wave

Pulled me into your eyes

Through the greeney grey pebbles

And countless cathedrals arriving


That wave

Lift me into your mouth

Turning spires and spittle of pearls

To perplex the young diver


I flew down to the bottom of the sea

Where I questioned the fishes all about it

I was in heaven

Address cloud eleven

They danced and laughed spelling all I fell into was love


That wave

Carried me through your hair

Up from suffocate seaweed

The perfumed cushions cascading


That wave

Pushed me into your skin

Where I bathed in the promises

Giddy with planets parading


I swam down to the bottom of the sky

Where I questioned the blue birds all about it

I was in heaven

Address cloud eleven

They danced and laughed spelling all I fell into was love


That wave!


That wave

Pulled me right overboard

Into permanent morgasm

Emotional action painting


I flew down to the bottom of the sea

Where I questioned the fishes all about it

I was in heaven

Address cloud eleven

They danced and laughed spelling all I fell into was love
