"from the sea" as written by and Finlay Temperley Beaton Joel Peter Quartermain....
Ohh I'm so spaced out today,
Ohh I could of slept for days,
It's like a radar and it calls to you,
From the sea, from the sea, from the sea

Ohh she's just so under pain,
Ohh I'm so spaced out today
My head's the light way and I come to you,
From the sea, from the sea, from the sea

Hello, hello, ohh hello
The world repeats itself some how
She knows, she knows, ohh she knows,
The world repeats itself some how

All I'm just beginning to know,
She's all I'm just beginning to know

Ohh, there's just no oxygen
Ohh, why can't we just fall in,
In the sea

Hello, hello, ohh hello
The world repeats itself some how
She knows, she knows, ohh she knows,
The world repeats itself some how

Ohh, ohhh, ohhh, ohhhh, ohhh, ohhh

Hello, hello, ohh hello
The world repeats itself some how
She knows, she knows, ohh she knows,
The world repeats itself some how

All I'm just beginning to know,
She's all I'm just beginning to know,
She's all I'm just beginning to know now.

    General Commentjeskimo's explaination is good... well its straight from the song writer so i'm assuming that its right! But also, she's right about the dark mysterious feel.... i like it when the music can convey a mood, and not just the lyrics. Its a sign of a talented band.

    General CommentIt sounds like a free song. Seems like it's partly about escaping to the sea, leaving all the worries and pain. Or learning about the world, and the new freedom that creates. Either way it's a great song!

    General CommentYou are all kinda close. To quote the fantastic talented Kav (the singer/songwriter), “It’s when you wake up... [and] you’ve just got the weight of the world on your shoulders. No matter what you do you’re looking at everything through a big foggy cloud." Its got this dark, myseterious feel to it. I rekkon its the best song eva too! Number 1 in the history of all music! Go the eskies!!!
