"Sea of Love" as written by and George Khoury Philip Baptiste....
Come with me my love to the sea
The sea of love
I want to tell you
How much I love you
I'm drowning in a sea of love

Do you remember the night we met?
That's the night I knew you were my pet
I want to tell you
How much I love you
I'm drowning in a sea of love

Come with me to the sea

Do you remember the night we met?
That's the night I just knew you were my pet
I want to tell you
How much I love you
I'm down in a sea of love

Come with me to the sea

Do you remember the night we met?
That's the night I just knew you were my pet
I want to tell you
How much I love you
I'm down in a sea of love

Come with me to the sea

Do you remember the night we met?
That's the night I just knew you were my pet
I want to tell you
How much I love you
I'm down here in a sea of love

Come with me to the sea

Come with me my love to the sea
The sea of love
I want to tell you
How much I love you
I'm down here in a sea of love

Come with me to the sea
...

    General CommentI think Tom waits really made this song his own. if you compare his version with the doo-wop original (which is also nice) i believe he added an extra dimension. he made it extremly beautiful and sweet but with a haunting and spooky undertone. the deep warm drums and the cold, close to the bone guitarsolo's (Marc Ribot?) makes this song a classic Tom Waits.

    The thing I like about this song (in his version) is that you don't know if his love is reciprocated. i always thought the last lines in the chorus were " I wanna tell you how much i love you but i'm drowning in the sea of love". as if his love was to big and brought him down.

    General CommentIt suggests a very controlling relationship, the protagonist has to control his woman because of the weight of his feelings towards her...a potential wife batterer maybe?
