I took a trip to the beach and the water was cold The ocean called out to me I did what I was told Diving under and over Tried to hide from the waves But they always found me A smell A sight A touch A sound Drags me like a rip tide Back In time I sink I'm bound To memories I can't fight Then, I remember Then, I remember I am the ocean All these waves come out of me And I hold them All these drops of memories I am vast and unexplored Full of life and so much more I am the ocean I go deep I made house on a hill way way up high A thousand miles from the coast Thought I'd always be dry Then the weeks turned to years And the water is rising Washed away my whole island No one, no space can keep me safe Drag me like a landslide The pain is real Oh will these wounds heal Answers that I can't find Then, I remember Then, I remember I am the ocean All these waves come out of me And I hold them All these drops of memories I am vast and unexplored Full of life and so much more I am the ocean I go deep I am the ocean All these waves come out of me And I hold them All these drops of memories I am vast and unexplored Full of life and so much more I am the ocean I go deep I am the ocean I go deep I am the ocean I go deep I am the ocean I go deep

about

Xav A. and I are long time friends who finally made a song together that we love. Ocean is dedicated to our watery world, a reminder (to myself) to do the best I can to help protect the earth and its people against all odds, and an affirmation to all about the vast, expansive, multitudinal, adaptable beings that we are 🌊🧜🏽‍♂️🐚🌅

And the cover art was made by Uliya using composite photographs, a photo editing software, and digitized sharpie handwriting on post-it notes. Thanks to Xav A. for making this song happen - I couldn't have done it without you - and for the continued support from all of you.
