(Slade) figure since im so far gone, oceans away
i can lay my saber down today
i still miss the words i love the words you did not say
miss the kiss you never gave away

there goes the sun oceans away
and days die young when you?re gone and you?re gone
there goes the sun oceans away
and leaves the day for someone else

honestly i thought
that we could make it all the way
barefoot on beaches dancing against the grain
but stone by stone the castle crumbled to the ground
i stood and stared as you started fall
into the waves

there goes the sun oceans away
and days die young when you?re gone and you?re gone
there goes the sun oceans away
and leaves the day for someone else

here's to the man of your dreams
i take it all in a box and make my way down to the shore
throw it in and begin to leave it to the waves
Leave it to the waves
Leave it to the
Leave it to the
Leave it to the waves

    The song is describing a woman that didnt appreciate her mans love for her and simply doesn't love him mutually. So he says the far fetched love he was searching for was oceans away. The heat of the love is oceans away. Far from where he is.
