The wave

"The wave" is one of the best songs written by my sister Christa. Over the years I added words and arrangements to it. I love doing this song live, both with Christa and Marjan."

The wave 3.58 (Christa van Kan / Peter van Kan 1987)

I am the wave I am the water
I am the driving force behind the flood
behind the flood

yesterday's burden is with me now
arranging the colours in my mind
shattering the spectrum of the flowing
waiting to be born
the wave has brought me here
now will it take me no further ?
I'm holding on to my fears
and I can see chaos growing

I am the wave I am the water
I am the driving force
behind the flood
she is the wave

giving in to my body's ways
I'm floating out of control
but deep inside me is growing
a new awareness of it all

(cause) I am the wave
she's following the stream
I am the water
she's following wave
I am the driving force
behind the flood
she is the wave

she's following the wave
she is the wave
we've got to cross the river

go from many to one
build a bridge
