There are men high up there fishing.
Haven't seen quite enough of the world.
I ain't seen a sign of my hero
And I'm still diving down for pearls.
Oh, let me flow into the ocean,
Let me get back to the sea,
Let me be stormy and let me be calm,
Let the tide in
I want it to rush over me .

I'm flowing under bridges
Then flying through the sky,
I'm traveling down cold metal
Just a tear in a baby's eye.
Let me flow into the ocean,
Let me get back to the sea,
Let me be stormy and let me be calm,
Let the tide in
I want it to rush over me
I wanna drown,etc.

I am not the actor.
This can't be the scene.
But I am in the water
As far as I can see.

I'm remembering distant memories,
Recalling other names,
Rippling over canyons,
I'm boiling in the train,
Let me flow into the ocean,
Let me get back to the sea,
Let me be stormy and let me be calm,
Let the tide in
I want it to rush over me .

I wanna drown in your sweet sweet love,etc.
