The ocean kills
The ocean saves
When I step into the ocean
I feel at home
I feel safe
At peace
In another world completely
Like I could stay forever.
Others are afraid to stand beyond their knees.
But I could stay forever.

When I see you
I feel at home.
I feel safe.
At peace
In another world.
I could stay forever.
And when I step into your arms
Its so much more intense.

I feel for you,
My sweet love,
What I feel for the ocean
For my truest home.
And that’s how I knew I loved you.
I felt for you
What I felt for my ocean
My sea
My home.
