You told me I don't love you, don't say that
Put no one above you, you know that
I know that I fucked up, one time
Don't right me off for life, it ain't right
How many sorrys will it take?
How much of me talking and setting straight?
Don't even remember the girls name
You're my forever and that won't change

[Pre-Chorus]
You said you only ever wanted honesty
I'm standing here tryin' to give you all of me
Don't tell me that you're love is running cold for me
When we both know that's not true

[Chorus]
I dropped a tear in the ocean
When they find it, that's when I'll stop loving you
Now I'm lost in a sea of emotion
Forever blinded, falling deeper into the blue
Oooh, you'll never find my tears in the ocean
Oooh, they'll never find my tears

[Verse 2]
Who knows where to touch you like me?
Whose gonna love you like me?
Whose gonna run to you when you're lonely?
Oh you know it's me, girl you know it's me

[Pre-Chorus] + [Chorus]

[Verse 3]
Just say something, say anything now
Look at me, don't hold your head down
Weren't we some shit, we can turn it all round
It'll take some work
It might sound like I'm making some excuses
When I say baby I'm just a man
Just a flash in pants
Something that I didn't plan
But it's all I gotta give
And for you I shed a tear

    General CommentJay Sean, the best selling Urban artist in the history of the UK, is leaving Cash Money Records and independently releasing a mixtape, Mistress II, in November. Today Billboard premieres a new video for the song "Tears in the Ocean," which will appear on the tape next month.
    Sean only has kind words for his former label. "I had and still maintain a great relationship with Slim and Baby [CEOs of Cash Money]," he tells Billboard. "They believed in me and my talent and our partnership obviously garnered a lot of pop success." But Sean wants to go in a different direction artistically. "It got to the point where I was chasing pop success and 'the smash' when really my heart wasn't in it anymore," he says. "That's not why I got into this game." (Cash Money is the second label that Jay Sean has left -- he was on Virgin Records for a spell during the '00s.)
    Tears in the Ocean" represents a return to Sean's roots. He's "always loved this style of melodic and emotional R&B." The steamy track -- co-written with Jared Cotter, who has helped Sean with "more than 30 songs" -- sprang from a desire "to make music that meant something, that had substance." He enlisted his family to help with the video: his brother filmed it and his wife co-produced it.
