"Oceans" as written by Christopher Anthony John Martin, Guy Rupert Berryman, Jonathan Mark Buckland and William Champion....
Wait for your call, love
The call never came
Ready to fall, love
Ready to claim

I'm ready for it all, love
I'm ready for a pain
Meet under sun
Meet me again
In the rain
In the rain
In the rain
The rain

Behind the walls, love
I'm trying to change
And I'm ready for it all, love
I'm ready for a change
Meet under blue sky
Meet me again
In the rain
The rain, the rain
In the rain
The rain

Got to find yourself alone in this world
You've got to find yourself alone

    General CommentThis song is about needing to embrace the dark times in life as well as the good times. Everything that happens to you as a person is meant to happen. And once you accept that then maybe life becomes more enjoyable, or calmer.

    There is a Japanese art form called Kintsugi. This is where bits of pottery are broken up and then put back together again, but with gold. The last refrain "You've got to find yourself alone" essentially details this; that everyone at some point needs to be broken up to realise that once you're put back together again, you can be better - and life goes on.

    My InterpretationThis could be of someone in the need of someone to love. He's ready for all. Waiting. But he feels that it never going to happen. "Got to find yourself alone in this world. You've got to find yourself alone"

    General CommentThis song is about isolation.

    The songwriter knows with certainty the consequence of lonesome. So despite the rejection he is faced with...he sides with hope and continues to pursue.

    On the other side of the coin... The subject of the song seems aloof to the fact that the consequence of being unreliable and unresponsive in a relationship results in isolation.

    It's the damb formidable place that takes with out remorse and a place you occupy in public space with out pity or nary an acknowledgement.

    Surrounded...yet alone.

    "Got to find yourself alone in this world...got to find yourself alone"

    The subject is on their way to where the songwriter has been.

    They just don't know it.
