The Ocean
Richard Hawley Lyrics


You lead me down, to the ocean
So lead me down, by the ocean

You know it's been a long time,
You always leave me tongue tied
And all this times for us
I love you just because

You lead me down, to the ocean
The world is fine, by the ocean

You know this time's for real
It helps the heart to heal
You know it breaks the seal of the talisman that harms
And so you look at me and need
The space that means as much to me

So lead me down, to the ocean
Our world is fine, by the ocean

You know the way it is in life, it's so hard to live up to
So why are you still dressed in your mourning suit
I assume, I assume

You'll lead me down, to the ocean
Don't leave me down, by the ocean
The ocean.

Here comes the wave, here comes the wave
Here comes the wave, down by the ocean

The ocean (repeat to fade)

Lyrics:
You lead me down, to the ocean
So lead me down, by the ocean

You know it's been a long time,
You always leave me tongue tied
And all this time's for us
I love you just because

You lead me down, to the ocean
The world is fine, by the ocean

You know this time's for real
It helps the heart to heal
You know it breaks the seal of the talisman that harms
And so you look at me and need
The space that means as much to me

So lead me down, to the ocean
Our world is fine, by the ocean

You know the way it is in life, it's so hard to live up to
So why are you still dressed in your mourning suit
I assume, I assume

You'll lead me down, to the ocean
Don't leave me down, by the ocean
The ocean.

Here comes the wave, here comes the wave
Here comes the wave, down by the ocean

The ocean, The ocean, The ocean...

this is one of those songs that you don’t want to listen to too much. Too beautiful to ruin by overplaying it lol.

Hossein Jalili

It's pure love and respect you give to this piece of beauty and art.

I just learned about this song today and am trying to listen only twice and have a break, to make sure I respect your rule. 🙌

I've played it so many times for quite a few years now and it has always felt like the first. It's a magic. I've never felt bored from it or passed it on.
It always seems to bring me back to a certain sweet feeling and memory of which I'll never get bored of.

My Dad and I cried to this together a few days before he died.(2007) A couple of days after he'd gone I went for a walk sparked up a joint and played this on the headphones and there he was.........with me again as he is every time I've played it since. Special memory of my special Dad by one of my favourite artists of all time. Sublime beyond words.........here comes the rain

I fully relate , with music like this that we shared .....it’s something that connects through the boundaries of life n death ...... this song gives me chills too when I think of my brother who passed in March ( quite young) at his own hand 😔 ....his love of the ocean was intense , we spent such a big part of our lives in and on the water.....he was in his element kitesurfing .....these songs bring him back in an instant ..... I also enjoy Chris Rea singing Sail Away for similar reasons .....as it seems to fit with a feeling that somehow they just drift away ...... may your memories bring more peace ☮️🙏🌈

jennifer leepsz
