Alicia Keys – Like The Sea lyrics
Love is like the sea
Leaves you on your knees
Feel it pull you in
Then it takes you,
Takes you over, over
Love is like the sea
Leaves you on your knees
First you're floating high
Then it takes you
Takes you under, under

Well it's cold
Cold
Under water
In the night time
But I dove
Dove to the bottom
To see what I'd find

That's when I saw a light
A glowing paradise
Thought I'd stay a while
It's been calling me
Underwater child
Everything that I ever dream

Taking my breath away
Currents got a hold on me
Sweeping me away
Wish I can stay
Takes me to the top
The cycle that never stops

[Chorus:]
Love is like the sea
Leaves you on your knees
Feel it pull you in
Then it takes you,
Takes you over, over
Love is like the sea
Leaves you on your knees
First you're floating high
Then it takes you
Takes you under, under

(Break)
Takes you takes you over
Takes you takes you under
Takes you takes you over (over)
Takes you takes you under

I been told, told
You only find it once in a lifetime
So you gotta hold
Hold on stronger then ever
Like it's the last time

So when you see the light
Like a ship in the night
You have found the place
You been looking for
Like a distant shore
Don't you ever look back again

Here's something you should know
The sea is still in control
Cherish everyday
'Cause you never know
It can take away
The very thing you love the most

[Chorus:]
Love is like the sea
Leaves you on your knees
Feel it pull you in
Then it takes you,
Takes you over, over
Love is like the sea
Leaves you on your knees
First you're floating high
Then it takes you
Takes you under, under

(Break)
Takes you takes you over (oh)
Takes you takes you under
Takes you takes you over (so far)
Takes you takes you under (this love like the sea)

Takes you takes you over
Takes you takes you under (can you feel the pull)
Takes you takes you over (its calling you)
Takes you takes you under

(Chorus Out)
Love is like the sea
Leaves you on your knees
Feel it pull you in
Then it takes you,
Takes you over, over
Love is like the sea
Leaves you on your knees
First you're floating high
Then it takes you
Takes you under, under

    This song speaks of the many up's and downs of love. When comparing the emotional rollercoaster that love can put one on alicia compares love to the sea. The sea one minute can be complex and difficult and the next minute it can be smooth and calm. One minute the waves can take you under, despite the struggles to stay afloat. Another minute the waves can make you feel like your soaring up to the top of the sea at full speed.
