"You're An Ocean" as written by and Tony Scalzo....
Can you make it easier for me to understand,
How you're holding my heart, in your trembling hands...
Eyes that rise to meet me half way up among the stars,
You may be from Venus but I'm definitely not from Mars

You're An Ocean, You're An Ocean
Settle Down, Settle Down,
What's the commotion,
I'm an island, but you're an ocean,
It's a stormy sea of love and emotion,
You've got me suspended motionless in time

Make the warm winds circle round my head just like you do,
If I could do it, I'd be doing it to you,
I believe I'd buy whatever you would sell to me,
Nothing in my life ever came with a guarantee,

You're An Ocean, You're An Ocean
Settle Down, Settle Down,
What's the commotion,
I'm an island, but you're an ocean,
It's a stormy sea of love and emotion,
You've got me suspended motionless in time

I believe I'd buy whatever you would sell to me,
Nothing in my life ever came with a guarantee,

You're An Ocean, You're An Ocean
Settle Down, Settle Down,
What's the commotion,
I'm an island, but you're an ocean,
It's a stormy sea of love and emotion,
You've got me suspended motionless in time

    I believe I'd buy whatever you would sell to me,
    Nothing in my life ever came with a guarantee,



    You're An Ocean, You're An Ocean
    Settle Down, Settle Down,
    What's the commotion,
    I'm an island, but you're an ocean,

    General CommentThe song is like, he is an island, stuck in the middle of this girl that he compares to an ocean because she has these "violent waves" that keep crashing and so many things going on and hes just stuck in the middle, in love with her

    General Commentone of those incredibly quirky and unpredictable girls.
    the crazy ones with an extreme love for life.
    the ones that smile and laugh just because they can.
    and the guy that is lucky enough to love her.
