Maybe they come by land
Maybe they come by sea
Maybe they've already come
Maybe they come by me
Slipping into the twilight
I ride the broken wave tonight
An old song on the radio
You knew a long time ago
An old song on the radio
Going out over the ocean

Maybe it's World War I
Maybe its World War III
Maybe it's Vietnam
Maybe we're on TV
Falling into the tall grass
Melting into the tall glass
Spilling out over the lip and
Into the ocean
Into the ocean

Carry carry carry me
Over the ocean, over the ocean, over the ocean, over the ocean
Over the sea

Maybe I've come so far
Maybe I'm on my knees
Maybe I'm dead or alive
Maybe I'm none of these
Just an old song on the radio
Someone put on a long time ago
Going out over the ocean
Over and over the ocean
Over and over the ocean
Over and over the ocean

    General CommentHey, this is Songs have meanings, or do they? Maybe just some of them are fill in time. Something waiting to happen. Maybe it'll happen by land or sea, maybe it'll happen by me. Yep, when it all seems mundane and without meaning we often fill it with our own. Or maybe the meaning is waiting to happen in some big event, maybe WW1 or WW111. Maybe it's Vietnam and the meanings are on TV. We're part of the show, just the ordinary folks, choppers over head and we're spilling out of the tall grass spilling into the ocean of history, the waters of human events. The rivers of history and we're just part of these, old songs on the radio, someone put on a long time ago. Could that be it, our tiny lives caught up in historical events outside our control?

    Only Patty knows for sure.
