​The Ocean

This song is by The Bravery and appears on the album The Sun and the Moon (2007).

I climbed up a mountain, and looked off the edge
At all of the lives that I never have led.
There's one where I stayed with you, across the sea.
I wonder, do you still think of me?
I carry your image always in my head,
Folded and yellowed and torn at the edge.
And I've look upon it for so many years.
Slowly I'm losing your face.

Oh, the ocean rolls us away, away, away.
The ocean rolls us away.

Sixes and sevens, we live on jet planes.
So many faces, I don't know the names.
So many friends now, and none of them mine.
Forgotten as soon as we meet.
All of these moments are lost in time.
But you're caught in my head like a thorn on a vine,
To forever torment me, and I wonder why
Do I wish I'd never known you at all?

Oh, the ocean rolls us away, away, away.
The ocean rolls us away.
Oh, the ocean rolls us away, away, away.
The ocean rolls us away.

The sun and the moon, an ocean of air,
So many voices, and nothing is there
But the ghost of you asking me why,
Why did I leave?

Oh, the ocean rolls us away, away, away.
The ocean rolls us away.
Oh, the ocean rolls us away, away, away.
And I lose your hand through the waves.
