The Bravery The Ocean Lyrics

I climbed up a mountain and looked off the edge
At all of the lives that I never have led
There's one where I stayed with you across the sea
I wonder, do you still think of me?
I carry your image always in my head
Folded and yellowed and torn at the edge
And I've looked upon it for so many years
Slowly I am losing your face

[Chorus:]
Oh, The ocean rolls us away, away, away
The ocean rolls us away

Sixes and sevens, we live on jet planes
So many faces, I don't know the names
So many friends now and none of them mine
Forgotten as soon as we meet
All of these moments are lost in time

But you caught in my head like a thorn on a vine
To forever torment me and I wonder why
Do I wish I'd never known you at all

[Chorus x2]

The sun and the moon, an ocean of air
So many voices and nothing is there
But the ghost of you asking me why, why did I leave?

[Chorus]

Oh, The ocean rolls us away, away, away
And I loose your hand through the waves
