Dar Williams - The Ocean Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • When I went to your town on the wide open shore,
  • Oh I must confess, I was drawn, I was drawn to the ocean,
  • I thought it spoke to me, it said, look at us,
  • Were not churches, not schools, not skating ponds, swimming pools,
  • And we have lost people, havent we though?
  • Oh, thats what the ocean can know of a body,
  • And thats when I came back to town, this town is a song about you.
  • You dont know how lucky you are, you dont know how much I adore you,
  • You are the welcoming back from the ocean.
  • I went back to the ocean today,
  • With my books and my papers I went to the rocks by the ocean,
  • But the weather changed quickly, oh the ocean said,
  • what are you trying to find, I dont care, Im not kind,
  • Ive bludgeoned your sailors, Ive spat out their keepsakes,
  • Oh its ashes to ashes, but always the ocean,
  • But the ocean cant come to this town, this town is a song about you.
  • You dont know how lucky you are, you dont know how much I adore you,
  • You are the welcoming back from the ocean.
  • And the ones that can know you so well are the ones that can swallow you whole.
  • I have a good and I have an evil, I thought the ocean, the ocean thought nothing,
  • You are the welcoming back from the ocean.
  • I didnt go back today,
  • I wanted to show you that I was more land than water,
  • I went to pick flowers. I brought them to you,
  • Look at me, look at them, with their salt up the stem,
  • But you frowned when I smiled and I tried to arrange them,
  • You said, let me tell you the song of this town,
  • You said, everything closes at five. after that, well, you just got the bars,
  • You dont know how precious you are, walking around with your little shoes dangling,
  • I am the one who lives with the ocean,
  • Its where we came from, you know, and sometimes I just want to go back,
  • After a day, we drink til were drowning, walk to the ocean, wade in with our workboots,
  • Wade in our workboots, try to finish the job.
  • You dont know how precious you are, I am the one who lives with the ocean.
  • You dont know how I am the one. you dont know how I am the one.
