about

Recorded with some of the world's best session musicians, Rival Waves' debut single "Amputee" is a song about the painful dissolution of any failed relationship. It's that point where one side is giving their all to try to make something work and is being met with a constant resentment and the destruction of what was. It's that inevitable feeling we've all had when we realize we're on the outside looking in - when we understand that we're out of the loop.

lyrics

Amputee:

built up so strong…
don’t feel anymore…
lost my head my will is dead…
and I’m standing at your door…again…

and you’re viewing me…
as an amputee…
who’s got his heart sewn to his sleeve still…
i will make you see…again...

only happy when you try to break me down…
it’s always me and you…out of the loop…
only happy when you want to cut me out…
it’s always me and you…out of the loop…

it’s what’s in your eyes…
that can mystify…
but when I look at you, your eyes…
rip me apart…again…

it’s the same old game…
and yeah I’m to blame…
an amputee is all you see…
it’s the price I pay…again...

only happy when you try to break me down…
it’s always me and you…out of the loop…
only happy when you want to cut me out…
it’s always me and you…out of the...the loop….

i swear…that there’s…no cure for you…
my head’s…a mess…I cannot help myself…

so here I am…
built up strong again…
an amputee down on one knee…
it’s all that I have left…here I am…

only happy when you try to break me down…
it’s always me and you…out of the loop…
only happy when you want to cut me out…
it’s always me and you…out of the….
....out of the...loop...
