Cliff Richard – Ocean Deep lyrics

Ocean deep cliff richard
Love, can't you see I'm alone
Can't you give this fool a chance
A little love is all I ask
A little kindness in the night
Please don't leave me behind
No, don't tell me love is blind
A little love is all I ask
And that is all
Ooh love, I've been searchin' so long
I've been searchin' high and low
And little love is all I ask
A little sadness when you go
Maybe you'll need a friend
Only please don't let's pretend
A little love is all I ask
And that is all
** I wanna spread my wings
But I just can't fly
As a string of pearls
The pretty girls go sailin' by
## Ocean deep
I'm so afraid to show my feelings
I have sailed a million ceilings
Solitary room

Ocean deep
Will I ever find a lover
Maybe she has found another
And as I cry myself to sleep
I know this love of mine I'll keep
Ocean deep
Now, can't you hear when I call
Can't you hear the word I say
A little love is all I ask
A little feelin' when we touch
Why am I still alone
I've got a heart without a home
A little love is all I ask
And that is all

Repeat **
Repeat ##
I'm so lonely, lonely, lonely
(Ocean deep)
On my own in my room
I'm so lonely
(Ocean deep)
I'm so lonely, I'm so lonely...

    Here is a man asking a little love from a girl but hesitant and afraid to show his true feelings, maybe because he's shy or is in fear of rejection and he wrote this to tell what's inside of him that he can't actually confess. It's easy to understand the meaning of the song and the melody is so sweet and soothing to the ear you would love to hear in the silence of the night. It's a nice love song :)
