Weary traveler, calloused and sore
Time and gravity followed you here
Rest, my sister, and tell me
All about the ocean

I've never seen the ocean
Not like this one

Weary traveler, calloused and sore
Time and gravity followed you here
Rest, my brother, and tell me
All about the ocean

Spoils and trophies and burdens you've bore.
Pay them no mind, they matter no more
Leave them behind and show me
All about the ocean

Look in your eyes
I've never seen the ocean
Not like this one

Deep in your eyes
I've never seen the ocean
Not like this one

Show me your eyes
I've never seen the ocean
Not like this one

Look in your eyes
I've never seen the ocean
Not like this one

    "spoils and troubles, and burdens you've born. " this lyric is incorrect. This lyric should read, "spoils and trophies, and burdens you've bore. " i tried to correct the lyric but lyricsmode ignored it, i guess. Oh well, i tried.

    Soul, depth of character and the disconnection between body and soul. Once eyes meet soul floods out like an ocean time space is infinite never ending the endless cycle of kindred souls touching base once every physical lifetime

    So many meanings can be taken from this song. For me, i think of love. Love can be seen through the eyes and they say love is like an ocean with feelings as deep as the depths of the ocean. I'm probably wrong but that's what the song speaks to me.

    Traditionally in poetry, rivers and oceans are symbolic of love. Love can become a burden, eventually, but it does not matter at the beginning.
