"1000 oceans" as written by Patrick Benzner, Dave Roth, Peter Hoffmann, David Jost and Rebecca Roth....
Empty streets
I follow every breath into the night
The winds are cold
The sun is frozen the world has lost its light
I carry your picture deep in me
Back to you of a 1000 seas
Back to us

Don't you lose your trust and your belief
Just trust me

[Chorus]
We have to go a 1000 Oceans wide
1000 dark years from time has died
1000 stars are passing by
We have to go a 1000 Oceans wide
1000 times against an endless tide
We'll be free to live our lives

I know somewhere
We'll find a little place for you and me
It all turned out a different way
Can't feel the pulse in our veins
So we today

Will let our heart be guided though the dark
Just trust me

[Chorus]

There's nothing and no one we'll miss
And one day we'll look back with no regrets

1000 Oceans wide
1000 Endless years have died
1000 Oceans wide
1000 Stars are passing by
Passing by
Please don't drift away from me
Please don't drift away from me

[Chorus]

Please don't drift away from me
Please don't drift away from me
1000 Oceans wide.

    General CommentOhk I think it MAY be about people not believing in a relationship two people may have and they are trying to disencourage them but they won't let it happen and they are fighting against it ? Maybe.. I dont know haha.

    General CommentI am not sure the exact meaning, but to me this song is about a relationship that is going through some hardship and is starting to break, sounds like an outside force is pulling the relationship apart, but one side is telling the other to hold on and be ready to fight for love.

    General CommentI think it's... we "only" have to go a thousand oceans wide--which isn't "only," it's really hard, but it's barely significant because they love each other and once they get there everything will be peaceful.

    General CommentSorry, I should have clarified; I'm pretty sure the original is "we only have to go 1000 oceans" or something.

    General CommentOoops. Wrong box. I didn't mean to make that a reply.. anyways... what I said was.

    I tend to think this song is about a couple who is far apart. Whether it's physically or emotionally. And he's saying "Hold on, don't leave. We can make it, and be strong even with the 1000 Oceans separating us". But that's my interpretation.

    Song MeaningThis song is about a long distance relationship where both have to keep their faith that one day they will be together again. The "please don't drift away from me" is more like a plead to not let the relationship fall apart because of the distance between them. Beautiful song.
