Lullabies to the Ocean

lullabies-to-the-ocean-art

Lyrics

Faint Rain

A faint rain passing through your fears up in smoke
Nothing shall remain
It all starts to make the same formation
Ashes fill a broken heart
Some love is built to last
Though others seem to break
Like brittle glass
Your intuition will move fast
Is it worth the time and effort
To make it last?
I feel restless keeping time with my defense
Nothing seems to coincide
Don’t run and hide trust the faith you cannot find
We will all be fine
Some love is built to last
Though others seem to break
Like brittle glass
Your intuition will move fast
Not worth the time or effort
So let it pass

Head for the Coast

Can’t you see the distance?
Rise above the difference
Solitude will find you in the end
Can’t you hear me breathing?
Wipe the tears you’re seeing
The sun rise is always on time
So don’t accept the past
Head for the Coast
Time was not made to last
Don’t keep on chasing the ghost
Life moves so fast
They can’t even call back
Fall into the same trap
True hope always finds a way
Back now on the wagon
Instead of in the pig pen
Embrace the truth of another day
So be kind to the divine
Sense of your mind
And unwind the piece that binds
The puzzles lost time
Fall out of line
She don’t give out false hope
Both of us can grow to cope
To find the true purpose of our world
Dare to say we can’t win
True love may come within
Bittersweet times left in the past
Can’t you hear me breathing
Wipe the tears you’re seeing
The sun rise is always on time

You’ll Know What to Do

I’m leaving this town at ten
Though not for long
I’m sure I’ll be back again
Because of you, it’s true
I know what to do
Stay out ‘til the moon is gone
It’s what we do
Fall asleep with me for so long
Because of you, it’s true
I know what to do
I just need to spend some time
Doing nothing at all
Get out to where the air is so fresh
Won’t you wait for my call?
Come walk with me one last time
Let’s talk about
Memories of the endless mind
For once I’m gone
It’s true you’ll know what to do

So Many Questions

I see the lightning flash across your eyes
The rain causes tears of a happiness in disguise
What new life do you seek little darling?
So many questions worth pondering
I hear the thunder lost inside your heart
Where do you go when your world starts to fall apart?
A hidden patch of grass in the forest
Where the skies all adore us
You’ve got nothing besides your time
So just start to unwind, start to unwind
You’ve got nothing else left to hide
So just start to unwind, it’s live or die
I feel I’m so in tune within your sound
Where should we go to focus more on the here and now?
What new life do you seek little darling?
So many questions worth pondering

Lullabies to the Ocean

She’s not someone to take for granted
She got that crystal moon just waiting to be found
Waking up late everyday, drift into night
Don’t wander aimlessly away
Can’t you hear her as she sings to the ocean?
Rhythmic motion that eases most troubled minds
Go on show your true emotion
To find a place that feels alright
Can’t you hear her lullabies to the ocean?
Memorize all of life’s signs
It helps to guide you in the crazy daze of our lives
Rise so early everyday run from the night
That hunts you down in silent waves
I can hear her lullabies to the ocean
Rhythmic motion that eases most troubled minds
Go on show your true emotion
To find a place that feels alright
I can hear her as she sings to the ocean
