Of Oceans

When I was sixteen
Maybe my life would have changed
If the sound hit my ears it would take me
Across the ocean, to follow

And I couldn’t stop me
I’ve always been one of the good girls
Afraid of breaking the rules
What roads would your song lead to?

But when I heard your voice
I was old and wise
How I wish I could return
To my younger life

But I…

I’d have run away
I wouldn’t have known what to say
I’d never have found my place
And gone home, dreaming of oceans

When I was twenty-two
Life set in motion, future in view
When the sound hit my ears it just made me
Happy to sing with the tune

I wanted a safe life
I never thought that I would end up here
And time has carried on
Now I hear your words through new ears

When I heard your voice
I was old and wise
And I don’t want to return
To my younger life

I’d have run away
I wouldn’t have known what to say
I’d never have found my place
And gone home, dreaming of oceans

Maybe is maybe, it never was
What’s happened has happened, and it’s enough
Maybe I’d miss out on all this love
While I waited, dreaming of oceans
