about

200 Waves
Written about a great night long ago at Melbourne’s Revolver night club in the 90’s. I wanted to call it 200 Hz after the bass frequencies that helped make that night so memorable, but I wasn’t sure people would get the link. The recording really came alive after Cam added a slide part and Phil put a tambourine on it – southern rock meets Manchester – why hasn’t anyone tried that before?

lyrics

200 Waves J.Gronow

Verse 1
Come closer, it’s so dark in here
I can’t hear a single word, you make yourself so clear
Understand me, there’s no turning back
We are an army on the dance floor, hearts set to attack

Chorus
I got a wave of love, falling on me, 200 waves of love
One little taste of ecstasy, 200 waves of love

Verse 2
This is perfect, this is how it should be
You make the time run slow, you make the compass swing
And your eyes, your eyes are like waves.
Sometimes I cannot understand a thing you say
Can you tell me if I got you wrong?

RPT Chorus

Bridge
Yeah, I’m so real
Come to me now
Yes, I’m so…real

Verse 3
Now we’re leaving, salt on our skin
Tumbling down revolver stairs into the dawn again
Are you the riptide, are you the smoke in the wind?
God, I feel so tired, you could plug me in
And I wonder will it ever stop?

Repeat Chorus
