The Ocean's Come and Gone

This song was created for Game of Bands round 185 : "80s Music"

Lyrics:


As the auburn sunlight starts to leave us,
(Beyond the rolling waves)
With the water whispering between us,
(we’ll spend our final days)

With your sweet hair falling on your shoulders,
And the chill wind prickling your skin
I’m the one to keep you in this moment
If only you’d begin to let me in…

And we had roamed our beach together
And I had held your loving hand,
But in the darkness of the evening,
You left my cold heart in the sand,
(and I say)

Why—- now—- did you
leave me hanging on
If you knew all this time
that we weren’t
meant to go for long!

Well here’s our beach.
And we walked alone together
And we’d stayed warm.
By the power of our lo-o-ove

But as we’d walked
Along the lonely sunset
And I’d thought nothing
could ever go so wrong

Why—- now—- did you
leave me hanging on
If you knew all this time
that we weren’t
meant to go this long!

Oh I want to hold your hand,
But then you left me on my own
Now my cold heart’s in the sand,
As the waves whisked you along

Oh I walk the broken land
No, my love was in your hands
The cold upon the sands,
And you were gone, gone, gone!

And I want to be your man,
But the ocean’s come and gone
With my cold heart in the sand
You know I just can’t carry on

[Exit]
