"Airwaves" is a song by Thomas Dolby. It was included in his 1982 debut album The Golden Age of Wireless. In its first release in the UK, "Airwaves" was 5:12 long. When The Golden Age of Wireless was first released to the US, however, the song was edited into 3:35. The full-length version was used in the US 1984 CD release.

LyricsEdit

Strange how the scale forms
In tiny patterns
On my antenna
And the Five O' Clock show, hello, hello...

Brooklyn is crawling
With famous people
I turn my vehicle
Beneath the river, West from South

Through the airwaves
People never read the airwaves
Do we only feed the airwaves
I really should've seen through the airwaves

Electric fences
Line our new freeway
Here in the half light
The motorhomes leave

Knee deep in water
Under a pylon
How slow my heartbeat
How thin the air I'm breathing in

Through the airwaves
People never read the airwaves
Do we only feed the airwaves
Or stamp them out at street level?
Airwaves the dampness of the wind
The airwaves the tension of the skin
The airwaves I really should've seen through the airwaves

Be in my broadcast
When this is over
Give me your shoulder
I need a place to wait for morning

No it was nothing
Some car backfiring
Please don't ask questions
I itch all over
Let me sleep
