on the ocean lyrics – guster

“on the ocean”

am i asleep?
is this a dream?
oh my god, what have i done?
anything?

at twenty-three,
you walked out on me.
oh my god, where have you gone?
anyway?

[chorus:]
on the ocean,
i think i’m taking on water.
the storm is on the way,
but i will hold on anyway.

ten thousand leagues,
under the sea,
oh my god, what have you done?
anything?

[bridge:]
twenty nine years,
i’ve wondered around,
there’s no beauty here,
no emerald town,
i shall all?, what will be forgotten?
everything?

[chorus:]
on the ocean,
i think i’m taking on water.
the storm is on the way,
but i will hold on anyway.

[bridge:]
i close my eyes and there’s someone beside me.
hand in hand we can only speak in tongues.
she’s pulling me along.

follow’n down, a trail of crumbs behind me,
my head’s in her hands,
but everything, it still feels wrong.
this isn’t what i thought,
so can i just go home?

am i asleep?
is this a dream?
oh my god, what have i done?
anything?

on the ocean,
ten thousand leagues,
i think i’m taking on water,
under the sea,
the storm is on the way,
oh my god, what have you done?
but i will be? you? anyway.
anything?
on the ocean . . .
