lyrics

If this puddle of tears gets big enough
Maybe I can swim away 
Through the rivers of my homeland
To the ocean
Salt water stop my bleeding
And the moon will guide my way
In your gently rocking cycles I will heal

Ocean take me 
Ocean call me home
To your waters and your waves 
Keep me whole and keep me safe
I’ve been crying

Mama told me to be cautious 
And I watched her all my life
Suffer from the cost of waiting
Keeping quiet holding still
Well I leapt into the world 
And set my body on the line
And I’m paying all the same 

Ocean take me
Ocean call me home 
To your waters and your waves
Keep me whole and keep me safe
I’ve been drifting

Can I travel where the ocean
Brushes lands that are not mine
Does my heartache stay beside me 
If I take it far away
I don’t know which road I’m walking
Now you’ve left me on my own
But I’m used to going forward I’ll be fine

Ocean take me
Ocean call me home
To your waters and your waves
Keep me whole and keep me safe
I’ve been loving

There’s a cost to giving freely
That you never realize
Till the balance is upended
And the gifts are thrown away
But I catch the things that fall
And make them into little songs
Singing home to the water

Ocean take me
Ocean call me home
To your waters and your waves
Keep me whole and keep me safe
I’ve been learning
