"Drop In The Ocean" as written by Michelle Branch, Jenifer Allan Hagio, Bernie Reilly and William F. Golden....
Love took me by the hand
Love took me by surprise
Love led me to you
And love opened up my eyes

And I was drifting away
Like a drop in the ocean
And now I realize that
Nothing has been as beautiful
As when I saw heaven's skies
In your eyes
In your eyes

And every time I drift away
I lose myself in you
And now I see I can be me
In everything I do

'Cause I was feeling as small
As a drop in the ocean
And now I realize that
Nothing has been as beautiful
As when I saw heaven's skies
In your eyes
In your eyes

Love took me by the hand
Love took me by surprise

And I was drifting away
Like a drop in the ocean
And now I've realized that
Nothing has been as beautiful
As when I saw heaven's skies
In your eyes
In your eyes

    General CommentThis is such a good song, I can't believe no one has commented on it yet. :P It's a love song, plain and simple, but I love the sound of it... it's so different from her other songs. And when it gets faster and louder at the end... it's just a great song.

    General Commenti wonder why everyone calls this pop. i mean, yeah, the sound is similar to pop-ish music, but it has so much more meaning. pop is just meaningless, senseless music, but michelle branch writes, plays, sings, and performs her own music. great stuff, i say.

    pop....short for "popular music"

    Michelle Branch = pop music.

    It's not necessarily a BAD thing...

    General CommentI'll have to agree with Hooby on this one.
    Although Michelle Branch can be classified as sort of alternative, her music is popular hence she is also classified as pop. I think that pop has definately been defined to so many people as Britney Spears style music that just say the same meaningless things. If that was the case I wouldn't classify Michelle Branch as pop. However, she has clearly set a new standard for the fact that she has her own unique style and writes her songs. This is exactly what makes her music popular. I would like to think of this as a good thing.
