Counting Crows – Oceanside lyrics

(Original by robyn hitchcock)

Did you ever hover in the distance?
Did you ever swoop down from the sky
To the bright green rocks all draped with seaweed
And the deep blue ocean rolling by?
Maybe I will find today
Maybe I will lose tomorrow
Gonna rock on to the oceanside
Did you ever see into the future?
See the big red sun that won't go down?
And the giant moths upon the cliffside
In the deep red scar that was our town?
Maybe I will find today
Maybe I will lose tomorrow
Gonna rock on to the oceanside
Baby, we're the king and queen of nothing
Everybody glows and then they're numb
We can make a moment last forever
Gaze across the ocean to the sun
Maybe I will find today
Maybe I will lose tomorrow
Gonna rock on to the oceanside
Gonna rock on to the oceanside
Gonna rock on to the oceanside
Baby, we're the king and queen of something
Everybody goes and then they come
