"oceans away" as written by Chloe Lowery and Steve Diamond....
Meet me at the shore or should it be halfway up
I've got a feeling I'll wake the dead tonight
And they're headed right this way
I'll write it on the walls
A map of where to go when the sea is turning
Oh yeah it's turning, you better believe it's turning
I will build a ship that will never sink as long as I'm alive
When I see the sails I'll come running to you
And we'll kiss for the very first time
If you'll come back home I'll fall into your arms
All the plans are made
We'll open graves with love
There's a walking dead
He's right there
Love is so direct
And you're exactly what I've waited for
There's a ghost, he's ready to slit your throat
I didn't get your letters, something is up
I'm having terrible dreams, you'll die it seems
I can't let this happen
I've gotta get to you and stop this madness
He'll walk the plank for his infractions

    General CommentIt refers to "the dead" and stuff like that... I think it could possibly have a idea going along the lines of killing ones faith (religiously) by doing all the wrong things hence "we'll open graves with love".

    Concerning the ending of the song: he really loves this girl so he's willing to "get to her" by having a relationship thats right in terms with god and over come satan who fuels his sinful nature saying "he'll walk the plank for his infractions."

    General CommentI think he's talking about Christ's second return...and when he says " and we'll kiss for the first time" the Bible says that we as christians are the bride of Christ, so maybe that's like figurtivly speaking..and like when he says 'when I see the sails I'll come running for You..he's refering to Christ...and like throuhg out the whol song he's talking about the prophecy, so long story shot...it's about Christ's second comming.

    General CommentThis also reminds me of the story in luke 15:

    In Luke 15, Jesus used a parable to show His heart on this subject. He told of a young man who took his inheritance from his father, left the fold and went off on his own. He squandered his wealth and lived in virtual squalor. When he realized what he had done, he decided to take his chances by going home to his family-he knew that he no longer had any rights and would probably be treated as a slave. But, instead, his father showed the heart of Christ. The moment he saw his son from afar, he ran to meet him.

    That is what the Lord is doing for you right now. Because you have taken the first step back into His fold, He is running to meet you. The question is not if He will take you back-He already promised that He would. The real question is: "How will you receive Him as He reaches out to you?� You have the assurance of His Word: "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness" (1 Jn. 1:9). That applies to you the same today as it did in the early days of your faith. If you confess your sins to Jesus, admit that you were wrong, ask for His forgiveness and then ask Him to be Lord of your life once again, He and all of Heaven will rejoice!
