Angel Olsen – Waving, Smiling Lyrics

Lyrics Waving, Smiling By Angel Olsen

“‘Waving, Smiling’ in my head is the last scene, a slow motion realization of love not lost but at peace somewhere within myself,” Olsen explains in a statement. “It’s the bittersweet end of a chapter of my life — it is the final acceptance that despite coming to an end all of that time was not lost or wasted.”

Found me down
And honey, you left me down
Turned right around, now baby I’m rising
How could you know wherever a heart should go?
You’re on your own when you are arriving
I’ve made my bed
I’ve laid out all those tears
I’ve made my bed
Made up of all my fears
All my fears, cried out all of those years
Cried out all of those years
Now baby I’m lying

Laid out and smilin’
Look out my window
The sun is shining
The sun is shining

I’m waving, smiling
At love forever, alive and dying
I’m waving, smiling
I’m waving, smiling
At love forever, alive and dying

The sun is shining
The sun is shining
