This song is about you
Cause I can't live without you
And this song is about you
And you know you've got problems
But you can choose

There's a hole in my conscience
There's a hole in my country
Like a hose that keeps running
Like a hose that wont stop flowing
And I know that it's coming
It's coming
It's coming
It's coming soon

Here's why
Cause you are the ocean
And I'm good at drowning
The morning will follow
I wont remember
It feels like I've been here
I've been here forever
Does she feel good now?

In the fall I get lonely
In the winter I'm still lonely
Come the mask of the springtime
In the summer I go crazy

Cause you are the ocean
And I'm good at drowning
The morning will follow
And I wont remember
It feels like I've been here
I've been here forever

Does she feel good now?

    This song is about you
    'Cause I can't live without
    You
    When a song is about
    You
    Then you know you've
    Got problems
    That you can choose

    There's a hole in my
    Conscience
    There's a hole in my
    Country
    Like a nose that keeps
    Running

    Like a hose that won't
    Stop flowing
    And I know that it's
    Coming
    It's coming
    It's coming
    It's coming soon

    And here's why

    'Cause you are the ocean
    And I'm good at
    Drowning (You should
    be looking out)
    The morning will follow
    And I won't remember
    (You should be looking
    out)
    It feels like I've been here
    I've been here forever
    (You should be looking
    out)
    You should be looking
    Out

    In the fall
    I get lonely
    In the winter
    I'm still lonely
    Come the knives
    Of the springtime
    In the summer
    I go crazy

    You are the ocean
    And I'm good at
    Drowning (You should
    be looking out)
    The morning will
    Follow
    And I won't remember
    (You should be
    looking out)
    It feels like I've been here
    I've been here forever
    (You should be
    looking out)

    You should be
    Looking out

    Song Meaningjosh carter: "'you are the ocean' was a song that we wrote during the winter--well, we wrote the entire album during the winter of 2007, 2008. it's a song about addictions and certain vices and crutches, i guess. in a nutshell, is what that song is about."
