"Ocean" as written by and Lou Reed....
I'm feeling safe and warm now
But just as much betrayed
Your attraction drowns me in now
Although I'm feeling driven away
You take from me what I call my own
And you pour out what you call love
And this eternal up and down
Just like your mighty waves
Again and again

The ocean takes the ocean gives
And I'm entangled in my dreams
The ocean takes the ocean gives
My heart grows cold as cold as ice
The ocean takes the ocean gives
The deepest longing never ends
The ocean takes the ocean gives
And I'm in love with the fatal blue

Got the illusion swimming on the crowns
But landing soon in the deepest trough
I'm thinking just like you want me to do
But losing myself in a dangerous stream
Thoughts of happiness come out like drizzling rain
And you taught me to brighten a raging sea
Your endless beauty wearing the same face
The same face as your cruel storms
Again and again

Forgive my own tears
They shall not remain
Both bitter and sweet
In the driving rain
Forgive my own fears
They shall not remain
Hopeless in love
I'm in love with the fatal blue
