"The Ocean" as written by and William Benoit John Driscoll....
I never thought that I would make amends with the ocean
But as we left the shores my eyes began to tear
Why had it always caused me unelusive feelings?
Why had it always left me fear?
Truth is my thoughts that had me sinkin' to the bottom
Driftin' like a bottle through the sea without a sound
And when I finally washed up to your sandy shorebed
The message in the bottle had no writing to be found

Well this is my paradise
This is all I really need
And I can't live without this feeling
Of the ocean around me, yeah

Waves crashin' on the shore sunrise the water's sparkling
Warm sand between my toes diggin' in there's so much comfort
I'm not knowin' where it ends or if it keeps on going
An entire world beneath my body as I float, yeah

This is my paradise
This is all I really need
And I can't live without this feeling
Of the ocean around me, yeah

This is my paradise
This is all I really need
And I can't live without this feeling
Of the ocean around me, yeah

Every now and then
I sit and I think about this life
And I say "yeah, how could anyone want more?"
I got the notion put your body in motion
Come on now we'll take a ride on the ocean
There's a lot of candy in this store

Every now and then
I sit and I think about this life
And I say "yeah, how could anyone want more?"
I got the notion put your body in motion
Come on now we'll float away on the ocean
There's a lot of candy in this store

Every now and then
I sit and I think about this life
And I say "yeah, how could anyone want more?"
I got the notion put your body in motion
Come on now I gotta stay on the ocean
There's a lot of candy in this store

    General Commentcorrection: 3rd line - an elusive, not unelusive.

    and i wrote this on the "Changes in the Weather" page, but i think this is somewhat of a response to that song. There he seems unsatisfied with life and resorts to dreams, but then realizing that those dreams aren't real. Here, in this song, it seems as if Will is saying that life is good as is.

    "Every now and then
    I sit and I think about this life
    And I say "yeah, how could anyone want more?"
    I got the notion put your body in motion
    Come on now we'll float away on the ocean
    There's a lot of candy in this store."
