And it caught me off guard
The way things that I was so sure of
Simply crumbled away
And I woke up with winter inside of my bones
I'd never been so sure of anything

You were the ocean
And I was the sand beneath your waves
You were the ocean
And I was the sand

And all the things
That pushed us together
Are all the things
That pulled us apart

But I figured this is best
Considering my intentions
Just to chase, chase, chase until I'm satisfied
Then throw you away

You were the ocean
And I was the sand beneath your waves
You were the ocean
And I was the sand beneath your waves

Everything I ever was ultimately added up
To so much less than I had ever hoped for
I am the furthest thing away
From what you see in me
But there have been times
When there was no difference between you and I

I wondered what sort of lesson was built in to all of this
What should I take away?
Learning from this sort of thing isn't easy when
Your solutions are mistakes

You were the ocean
I was the sand beneath your waves
You were the ocean
And I was the sand beneath your waves

Everything I ever was ultimately added up
To so much less than I had ever hoped for
I am the furthest thing away
From what you see in me
But there have been times
When there was no difference between you and I

And you said all I ever do is run away
And you said all I ever do is run away

I am the ocean
You are the sand beneath my waves
I am the ocean
You are the sand beneath my waves

Everything I ever was ultimately added up
To so much less than I had ever hoped for
I am the furthest thing away
From what you see in me
But there have been times
When there was no difference between you and I

Everything I ever was ultimately added up
(I am the ocean)
(You are the sand beneath my waves)
To so much less than I had ever hoped for
(I am the ocean)
(You are the sand beneath my waves)
I am the furthest thing away
(I am the ocean)
(You are the sand beneath my waves)
From what you see in me
I am the ocean
You are the sand beneath my waves!
