Oceans & Streams
The Black Keys Lyrics


With guilt that no man should carry
Heavy enough for me to get buried
I feel death on the road tonight
It's got me to where I wanna run and hide

Oh I used to dream of oceans and streams
Flowing and growing strong
Where have all
Those days gone
These days I'm so slow
All these thoughts and no where to go
My aim used to be so true
And my world had a place in it, darling just for you

Oh I used to dream of oceans and streams
Flowing and growing strong
Where have all
Those days gone

Excuse me, I gotta go
Can't stand to be here anymore, no
I'm sick and I gotta go to bed
If I stay here I'm better off dead

Oh I used to dream of oceans and streams
Flowing and growing strong
Where have all
Those days gone

if you are listening to this you are a legend:
[Verse 1]
With guilt that no man should carry
Heavy enough for me to get buried
I feel death on the road tonight
It's gotten me to where I want to run and hide

[Chorus]
Oh, I used to dream
Of oceans and streams
Flowing and growing strong
Where have all those days gone?

[Verse 2]
These days I am so slow
All those thoughts and nowhere to go
My aim, it used to be so true
My world had a place in it darling, just for you

[Chorus]
Oh, I used to dream
Of oceans and streams
Flowing and growing strong
Where have all those days gone?

[Guitar solo]
[Verse 3]
'Scuse me, now, I got to go
Can't stand to be here anymore, no
I'm sick and I got to go to bed
If I stay now, I'm better off dead

[Chorus]
Oh, I used to dream
Of oceans and streams
Flowing and growing strong
Where have all those days gone?



Eye Said It

[Verse 1]
With guilt that no man should carry
Heavy enough for me to get buried
I feel death on the road tonight
It's gotten me to where I want to run and hide

[Chorus]
Oh, I used to dream
Of oceans and streams
Flowing and growing strong
Where have all those days gone?

[Verse 2]
These days I am so slow
All those thoughts and nowhere to go
My aim, it used to be so true
My world had a place in it darling, just for you

[Chorus]
Oh, I used to dream
Of oceans and streams
Flowing and growing strong
Where have all those days gone?

I interpret this as a song about growing apart, about realising one day that you are no more the person who fell in love with someone/something that used to be so important to you but for whom you can no longer feel connected with in the same way.

Love it !!!

I love this guy's voice, reminds me of Jack Bruce, but more nuanced, strong, moving, sometimes he sounds like a black man, best voice I've heard since I first heard Eddie Vedder. This Band is so awesome.

JAG

I feel this song so close to me, I had a love and lost her because of my own fault, so I go around with guilt that no man should carry, My world had a place in it just for her but not anymore, so those days when i dreamed of oceans and streams are long gone

Luis Alfonso Burgos
