Oceanea
Thomas Dolby Lyrics


Cannonballs
Ricochet around the room
I hurry home to lick my wounds
I stumble home to Oceanear

A nightingale
Sat above my mother's tomb
Twilight in the afternoon
I stumble home to Oceanear

Not far from here
On some other Eco zone
The crocuses are still in bloom
I stumble home to Oceanear

Yeah
And I am free
I'm soaring on a thermal wind
I'm learning how to shed my skin
I made it home to Oceanear

Thats great stuff, still so Dolby but also different. Great vocals - really great . Lovely match with Eddie Reader. Would love to do an interview Thomas!

Michael Vaughan

This song and "Cloudburst on Shingle Street," are his most intimate songs for me. They're about surviving. Oceanea is that place we go, that internal place, to heal ourselves and move on. It's about finding beauty in our pain, learning the lessons from it, and finding our strength in the face of adversity. Both songs are expressions of a bruised and battered fighter celebrating his survival.

Ohh man you have hit the nail with that awesome comment😌

I'd add that to me it represents a perfect place of peace, but not sure if i'm alone there or not, and that makes it said and content same time.

Thomas Dolby knows how to write melodies that utterly haunt me, and stir up memories from decades ago filled with unknown longings. this song, 'Valley of the Minds Eye' 'one of our submarines' 'I love you goodbye' 'screen kiss' are some of my favorites that do this, to name a few...

Yes, Maha. I'm usually so hung up on the beauty of Dolby's chord progressions and timbral textures that it can take me years to fully appreciate his work as a melodist and lyricist.

+maha77 Totally agreed, I'd just add Budapest by a blimp, to me a perfect nocturnal drive song

screen kiss is a true GEM

DriveInFreak

This is one of the most beautiful and moving songs I've ever heard. The first time I heard this I was simply blown away.

Tim Davis

I listened to it at least 15 times in a row.
