Now you say you're going away, leaving on a plane
But your memory remains
Our only contact is this telephone
These phone lines where I keep my home
Are driving me insane

The ocean is a fuck of a long way to swim
But I'd do it in a whim
I'd dive into the deep blue sea
Just so you could be with me
Those guys from Alcatraz with their raincoat boats
Ain't got nothing on me
I'd dive into the deep blue sea
Just so you could be with me

I only hope that as the time rolls by
That you won't find another guy
You won't forget my face
You know that I will always think of you
And what on earth I'd ever do
If our love should be replaced
I miss you in the worst of ways,
I wish tomorrow was today
So we could be together forever anyway
I swear just standing on the Jersey shore
I can almost see your door
Then we could be together forever anyway

    General CommentThe album is great and this song is better. Who would have thought a song called "The Ocean is a Fuck of a Long Way to Swim" could be a straight up love song?
