​Not Waving, Drowning

This song is by James Reyne and appears on the album Design for Living (1999).

Everybody's on the street
Looking oh so good
There walkin' around thinking life is sweet
And it's a beautiful day in the neighbourhood
I just wanna tell everybody
That you were the one
What you thought were your glory days
Seem to have come undone

Day after day I'm craving
The stuff that we were saving
You know now I'm not waving
I'm drowning

And every time I stop and wander
How I got a date with Botticell's niece
She's a'walkin' around
Saying look what I found
Now she's ripping up my masterpiece
You were gonna beg steal or borrow
Until you had enough
Just like there's no tomorrow
You keep a'laughing in the face of love

Day after day I'm craving
The stuff that we were saving
You know now I'm not waving
I'm drowning
I'm drowning

Day after day I'm craving
The stuff that we were saving
You know now I'm not waving
I'm drowning
I'm drowning

Day after day I'm craving
The stuff that we were saving
You know now I'm not waving
I'm drowning

I'm drowning
I'm drowning
I'm drowning
I'm drowning
I'm drowning
