ocean. (quiet water) [song] - DOG DAYS ARE OVER

Verse:
Mist, in my eyes
Ice, heart melts, freeze
Dive, into ocean spacious as skies
Lie, sea turned bed if dived too deep
Still profound, unexplored
Wonder, how change will give more

Chorus:
Depth, ease into flow
Deep inside, grow the more I know
I’m an ocean, I’m an ocean
Ocean...

Verse:
Blue, like sky after rain
Beholds a fluid joy or pain
Swim, connect and don’t drown
Feel, don’t wanna le-e-e-et you
Down, holding breath tight like dreams
Fathom, beauty and curses beyond what it seems
A nightmare so elegant, gambled with

Chorus:
Lost, pressure rising like
Thoughts, swimming away towards the sun
I’m an ocean, I’m an ocean
Ocean...

Bridge:
Dive in me,
When poems and songs are all my thoughts can be,
Dive in me,
Don’t drown, please just connect and feel my heartbeat
Dive with me
Please let me be
An abstract clarity
Could I be,
One to soothe my identity/naivety?

Outro:
Soothe my identity
I’m an ocean, oh an ocean.

Dive in me,
Explore deep blue emotions,
Sensitivity
Don’t die on me,

Dive in me,
Can I be just as focused and just as magnificent?
Understand now:

I’m an ocean, an ocean..

(quiet water)

Verse:
quiet water
Feels like I’ve gotten another
World away from the place I called home,

The place where I wanted to explode,
The place where all my thoughts hung like sheets to dry.

Chorus:
Quiet water,
Find me another
Sea to find refuge in,
River to a new home,
Ocean to drown broken art in my mind
Whisper to me why I’m still here.
Quiet water,
Find me another
Sea to find refuge in,
River to a new home.

Verse:
quiet water
Feels I’ve lost another
World away from the place I called home,

Places I wanted to explore, find more
Places inside me I craved and implored.

Chorus:
(Quiet water,
Find me another)
Sea to find refuge in,
River to a new home,
Ocean to drown broken art in my mind
Whisper to me why I’m still here.
