Black Water Tides
(Bo Bice)

Well, I've never tried the ocean
The tide swept me out to sea
I swam in search of islands
Let the salt air breeze carry me
No, I've never tried the ocean
Been swept out about a million miles
I would crawl back to hell for a blanket
But I'll never see the black water tides
No, I'll never see the black water tides
Black water tides
No, I never ever died
Now the ocean is my home
Life's like water it keeps flowing on

I've never seen my front porch
Been locked away most of all my life
I've only seen the garden
Where the dead fruit grow all night
Where the dead fruit grow all night
Repeat Chorus:

Well, I've never seen the ocean
But I've been washed out now about a million miles
And a boat's been sent in the middle of a hurricane
And I'm thinking it's time to fly
See, I'm thinking it's time to fly
No, I've never seen the ocean.........
