Love , can't you see I'm alone
Can't you give this fool a chance
A little love is all I ask
A little kindness in the night
Please don't leave me behind
No , don't tell me love is blind
A little love is all I ask
And that is all
Ooh love , I've been searchin' so long
I've been searchin' high and low
And little love is all I ask
A little sadness when you go
Maybe you'll need a friend
Only please don't let's pretend
A little love is all I ask
And that is all
** I wanna spread my wings
But I just can't fly
As a string of pearls
The pretty girls go sailin' by
## Ocean deep
I'm so afraid to show my feelings
I have sailed a million ceilings
Solitary room

Ocean deep
Will I ever find a lover
Maybe she has found another
And as I cry myself to sleep
I know this love of mine I'll keep
Ocean deep
Now , can't you hear when I call
Can't you hear the word I say
A little love is all I ask
A little feelin' when we touch
Why am I still alone
I've got a heart without a home
A little love is all I ask
And that is all

Repeat **
Repeat ##
I'm so lonely , lonely , lonely
(Ocean deep)
On my own in my room
I'm so lonely
(Ocean deep)
I'm so lonely , I'm so lonely ...

    Its not easy to tell the one you love that you have feelings for him/her. It takes great courage to reveal the emotions inside of you. Never loose hope. Everyone needs love. It may be in the form of loving God, a universal or an erotic one. It depends on the person's perspective,on how he/she will interpret the love he/she is longing for.
    Ocean Deep.- My friend I were exchanging text messages. I told him to listen to a FM radio frequency. The song being played was The One You love. But he was insisting that it was Ocean Deep. So I asked him why? He said that he was afraid to show his feelings. That moment, I was assuming that it was for me. Days, weeks, and months have passed we often see each other. But then again, he was very hesitant to tell it me. Why? Because I'm already in a relationship and he respects what I have right now. The feeling is mutual but we can't be with each others arms. If I could only have one wish, I would badly want to end my current relationship and be with The One I truly love.

    I heard this song for the first time today! I'm not particularly a cliff richard fan, but this did touch my heart as he sings it with such depth and meaning - beautiful.

    What soothing tonic the song becomes during this time of loneliness. Cliff is irreplaceable. My favourite album is his private collection.

    Wonderful song for lonely people. I love the lyrics. It sang how i felt. My high school memory seal under this ocean deep. Cliff Richard is awesome. XD. But i prefer the version of year 1984. He has nicer voice.
