Oceans are one of Mother Natures more terrifying and awe inspiring creations.
Sometimes I wonder how lonely she is. For no-one can ever really know her, in all her expansiveness and depth.
She has so many mysteries it would surely be impossible.
I’ve felt that way before – I think we all have. Misunderstood, as though you’re a sea no-one could ever cross, oceans no-one could ever truly know..
I’ve got the depths of an ancient ocean inside my soul
You caught a glimpse of me just below the surface
I tarried too long in the waves
I forgot how the ocean floor felt
See my lungs don’t need air like yours do
I sing in salty water
I dance through shipwrecks
And currents I can’t control drag my heart around the deep
You love the beauty of my shoreline
But you can’t possibly love the rest of me without drowning
For I’ve got depths of an ancient ocean inside my soul
And you, brave sailor, were only ever meant to ride the waves
