Guster – On the Ocean lyrics

Am I asleep? Is this a dream?
Oh my God, what have I done? Anything?

At twenty-three you walked on me.
Oh my God, where have you gone anyway?

On the ocean
I think we're taking on water
A storm is on the way
But I will hold on anyway

Ten-thousand leagues under the sea
Oh my God, what have you done? Anything?

Twenty-nine years I've wandered around
There's no beauty here, no emerald town
A shallow love, what will be forgotten?
Everything.

On the ocean
I think we're taking on water
A storm is on the way
But I will hold on anyway

I close my eyes and there's someone beside me
Hand-in-hand, but we can only speak in tongues
She's pulling me along

Follow her down, a trail of crumbs behind me
My head's in her hands, but everything, it still feels wrong
This isn't what I thought
So can I just go home?

Am I asleep? Is this a dream?
Oh my God, what have I done? Anything?

(On the ocean)
Ten-thousand leagues
(I think we're taking on water)
Under the sea
(A storm is on the way)
Oh my God
(But I won't be here anyway)
Where have you gone? Anything?

On the ocean.
