"Ocean" as written by and Ronald Ward....
If the wind could bring the rain
I would save it all for you
Make an ocean to sail away
And begin again
They said I could never change
That it can't belong to you
Then I watched you slip away
In the ocean's arms

I will never get you back
It's like falling down a wave
Falling down a wave

I will never get you back
It's like falling down a wave
Falling down a wave

If a star could light the way
That could take me back to you
And the rain could wash away
Everything i've done
Only melody remains
So I sing my song to you
As I watched you slip away
In the ocean's arms

I will never get you back
It's like falling down a wave
Falling down a wave

I will never get you back
It's like falling down a wave
Falling down a wave

Falling down a wave
(falling down a wave)
I will never get you back
Like falling down a wave
(falling down a wave)
I will never get you back

I will never get you back
It's like falling down a wave
Falling down a wave

I will never get you back
Like falling down a wave
Falling down a

I will never get you back
It's like falling down a wave
Falling down a wave

I will never get you back
It's like falling down a wave
Falling down a wave

I will never get you back
I will never get you back
I will never get you back
I will never get you back

    Song MeaningThis song just shows how brilliant a song writer Scooter Ward is.

    The song is entirely metaphorical.

    Imagine someone falling down in a wave and getting dragged away into the ocean. Or someone slipping away from your life and you remain helpless to keep them.

    The first verse explains that he would give anything to oversee the regrets in the relationship, and get the girl back.

    It's a song about losing someone you love and being helpless to stop it happening, and how if given a second chance he would do things over again.



    brilliant song.

    General CommentThis song might mean losing someone and expressing the futility of wanting them back, whether it be death or breaking up:

    "I Will Never Get You Back,
    It's Like Falling Down A Wave."

    I myself made a huge mistake in splitting up with my partner, and I never thought she's forgive me when I wanted her back, so I left it. I heard this song and it spoke to me so well. We're back together now, so this song is very close to my heart.

    General Commentthis song is my life. really. its the story of my life. its about loosing someone or loosing a feeling. when you fall down a wave its hard to get back up. and thats what:

    i will never get you back
    it's like falling down a wave

    means. this is the saddest song ever. but its also my favorite. it means the world to me.

    General Comment"OCEAN" refers to waves come and go and none of them are the same...there is no person in the world that can be the same as someone else. Once the waves crash down that's it! Once it's over it's over!

    General CommentEver heard the phrase "theres plenty more fish in the sea"?

    I like to think he means his "fish" has slipped back into the ocean.

    Also i think the lines

    "and i watched you slip away
    and the ocean's ours"

    is actually

    "there i watched you slip away
    into the oceans arms"

    This song and a different kind of pain got me through a rough situation with a girl XD, put me back on my feet ^^.
