"Frozen Oceans" as written by Jeremy Dawson and Stephen Petree....
I can't sleep
I've lost the urge to sing
No one's left a friend
The cost of ill pretend
Where'd you go?
I need you now
I said oh ,oh

Ten thousand miles apart
A frozen ocean joins our hearts
I can't wait to meet you when
The frozen waves meet ocean floors
You'll be standing on the shore
I can't wait to meet you then

I still dream
But what should I believe
Frozen shapes to bend
Impossible sets in
Lost again
Still alone
I said oh, oh

Ten thousand miles apart
A frozen ocean joins our hearts
I can't wait to meet you when
The frozen waves meet ocean floors
You'll be standing on the shore
I can't wait to meet you then

I can't wait [Repeat: x7]

The frozen waves meet ocean floors
You'll be standing on the shore
I can't wait to meet you then
Ten thousand miles apart
A frozen ocean joins our hearts
I can't wait to meet you when

    General CommentAfter listening to this song more I've fallen in love with it.
    Makes me think of one of my best friends. One day he just disappeared. Haven't talked to him in six months.

    General CommentI like it, don't know what the meaning is though. :D Suppose I have to listen some more.
    Miss Carah's voice, but I really like this song. Can't wait för the new album. :D Hopefully it'll sound mostly like this song, and less like Ricochet.
    ... That song'll prolly grow on me. I hope so. Don't want to dislike shinys. >:

    General Commentthis song is beautiful. her voice is so powerful.

    i'm just guessing but maybe it's about how carah left.
    someone, a best friend or boyfriend, who was once there is now gone. the poet misses that particular person very much and wishes to see them. he or she feels like they are so physically far apart- oceans are big. but maybe the person they're missing is right there physically, just not really 'there' anymore.
    but that's just my interpretation.

    General CommentI think this song is about being in love with someone who isn't available, whether its physically or emotionally. It could also be someone who lives "10,000 miles" away (a person in the millitary?)

    anyways, its a beautiful song. i've seen it performed live twice and it still gives me goosebumps.

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful. When I first heard it, I was amazed that a song like this could come from this band [even with songs like 'You Are The One'].

    The song, the way I see it, represents two lovers who have parted ways. Because the female vocalist is singing most of the song, you can assume that she is the lover who was scorned from the separation. From this song, it feels like she was maybe separated from him [the male; through death or maybe unfortunate events] and longs to be with him again.

    'I can't sleep
    I've lost the urge to sing
    No one's left a friend
    The cost of ill pretend
    Where'd you go?
    I need you now
    I said ooh-ooh'

    These lyrics impose that because of her loss of her love that she has given up on life, or is just generally discouraged. Also because of this, it causes her to realize who her real friends are.

    'Ten thousand miles apart
    A frozen ocean joins our hearts
    I can't wait to meet you when
    The frozen waves meet ocean floors
    You'll be standing on the shore
    I can't wait to meet you then'

    This part of the song can be interpreted many ways. The way I see it, she is singing of the time when she'll be able to see her lover again, and her excitement when she finally sees him once more. This kind of strongly suggests he's maybe dead--these lyrics imply that there's a huge amount of distance between them, but 'love' or the 'frozen ocean' connects them together even through death.

    The rest of the song kind of follows suit with this interpretation, what with the girl being alone and sad, and then the chorus again and the repeat of 'I Can't Wait'.

    It kinda reminds me of Memoirs of a Geisha [the main lead-girl and the Chairman], and how everything in her life leads up to that one moment when she meets the Chairman again.

    Such a beautiful song.

    General Commentim thinking it's about two people and they love each other and all that and one of them has to go, perhaps here since it says "you'll be standing on the shore" like shes coming back to him. so they're away from each other and they still love each other but the distance (10,000 miles apart) makes it a bit harder to remember (a frozen ocean joins our hearts) so its like their feelings are frozen, still there but muted and numbed by the distance, but it sounds like they remember each other quite well enough to wait for the separation to end so they can be together again and happy and all that.
