"Oceans" as written by and Jeffrey John/martin Burrows....
Where are you going
Can I follow
Because distance is hard to swallow
You should stay a while
Let's have a drink
Let's have a laugh

You feel power
And no worries
If that's so
Then what's your hurry
If you've got to go
There's just one thing I've got to ask

If I promise an ocean
Would you care for the notion of
Staying here and resting your weary head
It's all that she said

Well the sky's changed
That's for certain
You smile says
What you working
Time heals all
This we know
We'll work it out

And if I promise an ocean
Would you care for the notion of
Staying here and resting your weary head
And would you come back and see me, or
Angel am I dreaming because
Heaven knows that I'll miss you so
And that's a fact
Look now where I'm at
I miss you so
Look now where I'm at
I can't let go

There's more questions
Than there's answers
I'm not taking any chances
Because I need to let you know
Just how I feel

And if I promise an ocean
Would you care for the notion of
Staying here and resting your weary head
And would you come back and see me, or
Angel am I dreaming because
Heaven knows that I'll miss you so
And that's a fact
Look now where I'm at
I miss you so

Look now where I'm at
I miss you so
Look now where I'm at
I miss you so
I can't let go
I miss you so

    General CommentWow, can't belive no ones commented on this one yet. They were in town last week, (wpg) and Jeff did an amazing acoustic version of this one live on the air. Its just a very beautiful song, nothing too complicated, great melody as usual, this song just reminds me of a special person in my life whom i miss day in and day out and can never seem to let go of. They wrote this song as a tribute to an old friend....Just a kewl tune many of us can relate to im sure.
