A drop in the ocean
A change in the weather
I was praying that you and me might end up together
It's like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert
But I'm holding you closer than most,
Cause you are my heaven.

I don't wanna waste the weekend
If you don't love me, pretend a few more hours, then it's time to go
As my train rolls down the east coast I wonder how you keep warm
It's too late to cry
To broken to move on
And still I can't let you be
Most nights I hardly sleep
Don't take what you don't need from me

It's just a drop in the ocean
A change in the weather
I was praying that you and me might end up together
It's like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert
But I'm holding you closer than most,
Cause you are my heaven
.

Misplaced trust and old friends
Never counting regrets
But a grace of god I do not rest at all
In new England as the leaves change
The last excuse that I'll claim, I was a boy who loved a women like a little girl
And still I can't let you be
Most nights I hardly sleep
Don't take what you don't need from me

It's just a drop in the ocean
A change in the weather
I was praying that you and me might end up together
It's like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert
But I'm holding you closer than most,
Cause you are my,

Heaven doesn't seem far away anymore no no
Heaven doesn't seem far away
Heaven doesn't seem far away anymore no no
Heaven doesn't seem far away


A drop in the ocean
A change in the weather
I was praying that you and me might end up together
It's like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert
But I'm holding you closer than most,
Cause you are my heaven.

You are my heaven

    i love this song so much.. it's so deep and his voice is so nice.
    Love songs are so cliche these days and i just wish people would stop singing about that and start singing about something much deeper.. but i love this particular love song. It's beautiful =]

    I feel like listening to the lyrics this song is about a guy who likes a girl a little younger than him and ends up going to college and breaking up with her for the mean time and planning on getting back together. At the time he doesnt think much of it but when he comes back and shes moved onhe realizes that he loves her but she doesnt feel the same way. Then at the end i feel like acc. To themusic vid. He tries to get her back but she moves on again and he is left there alone. The song is soo catchy and i love it but its kinda a happily never after song... :(

    I think this is about a boy, who did love a girl who was younger than him and they loved each other and they knew for ure what this was all about. But then society can't acept that shemight be a little younger than him and he tellher he'll wait for her. But then they grow up and realize they need each other but they stillare far apart so they still can'tbe in love. So he ends up getting a wife and never being fully happy because he still loves that girl. And that girl loves him but they never get together. Maybe it's the other way and they end up getting together and they love each other for the rest of their days. But I relate to this so much because me and tjis boy pretty much are in love but we can't be together because he is four years older and no one will accept us. It sucks. Loot. But this is our song and he said he'd wait for me and that we will end up together.

    I think it means he is sad about something that has happened between him and a girl and he is letting he's emotions out in a song.

    It means to me that a drop can't solve a situation.. When it's too late, you just have to move on, to keep on livin your life in the best way.. 'cause cryin' doesn't solve anything at all.. So you should be strong and think positive.. Just tryin to keep into your heart the best moments and the lesson that you've learned, so you'll try not to make the same mistakes again.. On the other side, if there's even half of hope.. Just keep tryin' and follow your dream with strength and courage!
