Bound To The Ocean


this place is bound to the ocean

whales breach the surface of a sapphire sea

with one swift and blinding motion

make my life the way itís supposed to be


many years of searching far and wide for signs of life

down the riverís winding road

a gentle man took me in one night

clothes on his back nearly all he ever owned

he offered me his cup and bread

gave up his bed and slept on stone


unto this ground he was devoted

on this ground he found his home

he was captured by the notion

to make life the way itís supposed to be

make his life the way itís supposed to be


this place is bound to the ocean

we are sure to reach the sapphire sea

i hear waves beat on the mountain

her fingers reaching out to me

in the echo of emotion

that sweeps the land of all debris

we are captured by the notion

to make life the way itís supposed to be

make our lives the way theyíre supposed to be


bound to the ocean

with her surface turning constantly

like a wave we are approaching

we are the land and life the sea

we are the sand and life the sea
