Running away, running away
Running away forever
It was her only chance of finding home
Running away, running away
Running away together...
With only thoughts of finding home

I'll wait for the ocean to rise up
And meet me as it rose up before
(I'll know the time)
I'll wait for the ocean to rise up
And greet me as it rose up before
(I'll know the year)

Because you're never alone
...Even when you're alone
You're never alone...
Watch the seventh wave

Running away, running away
Running into the weather
With only thoughts of finding home
Running away, running away
Running away forever
I realize I'm on my own

On my way pass it on
On my way pass it on

I'll wait for the ocean to rise up
And meet me as it rose up before
(I'll know the time)
I'll wait for the ocean to rise up
And greet me as it rose up before

We're never alone
Even when you're alone
We're never alone... watch the ocean

    General CommentI think the song is also about accepting death to a degree. The ocean stands for the enormous and unstoppable force of death, and just accepting it. The person will never be alone in death because of all the people that have died before and will die after. The Ocean in ocean machine represents the giant, inescapable force of life and things people cannot control (e.g. death). It's turbulent and unpredictable and is an analog for one's life. Accepting the will of the ocean is going along with life instead of trying to resist it.

    I agree with the second meaning of persistance and hope for the future. Running away from your problems won't stop them, because life is too powerful.
