So take one word, you said
You put it in your bed
You rest your tiny head on your pillow
You wonder where you're going next
You've got your head pushed to my chest
And now you're hoping that someone will let you in
Well I swear I'll let you in
You know I'll let you in, oh Kelsey, you

So don't let anyone scare you
You know that I'll protect you always
Now, through the thick and thin, until the end
You better watch it, you know you don't cross it
Because, I'm always here for you and I'll be here for you

I know, I know, I know
I know how it feels
Believe me, I've been there, and
I know, I know, I know
I know what it feels like, tell me, Kelsey

And I'll swim the ocean for you, the ocean for you
Whoa, Kelsey
And I'll swim the ocean for you, the ocean for you
Whoa, Kelsey, oh you, darling

Now it's gonna get harder and it's gonna burn brighter
And it's gonna feel tougher each and every day
So let me say that I love you, you're all I've ever wanted
You're all I've ever dreamed of to come
And yes you did come
I want you so bad, can you feel it too?
You know I'm so, I'm so in love with you
I want you so much, I need you so much
I need your, I need your, your touch

And I'll swim the ocean for you, the ocean for you
Whoa, Kelsey
And I'll swim the ocean for you, the ocean for you
Whoa, Kelsey

And I'll swim the ocean for you, the ocean for you
Whoa, Kelsey
And I'll swim the ocean for you, the ocean for you
Whoa, Kelsey

And you never, ever let me in (let me in)
And you never, ever let me in (let me in)
And you never, ever let me in (let me in)
And you never, ever let me in

    General Commentthis song is about a cat. i'll tell you why.
    first off you have to ignore the first line because cats don't say words unless your drunk. "you rest your tiny head on your pillow".
    wow. what do you know? cats have tiny heads. nobody but cats actually push themselves (their heads) against someones chest.
    "well i sure'll let you in"

    General CommentThis song is definitely about a cat.
    My cat and I talked it over and we decided that while it would make some sense to be after an ex-girlfriend,
    It is most definitely about a cat.
    I would swim the ocean for my kitty.

    General Comment^ CATS ARE UNLIKE DOGS, THEY GET SCARED VERY EASILY AND REACT to everything as if its the 8th world wonder falling upon their heads.

    cat crazy ppl would swim the ocean for their cat. i've got a neighbor like that. cries every night from his missing cat and he would certainly swim the ocean for him.

    General Commentthe ocean at THE WAVE theme park that is.
    and theres no question that ppl fall in love with their cats.
    needing their touch ... needing them so much.

    the ironic part is i hate cats.
    but if you consider this song about a cat......
    its just as good because its a great song, about a girl or about a cat.
    lets all be open minded shall we?

    General Commentokay first i love the cat rationale. everytime i hear this song that's all i can think of. [and there is always a cat-related ad on this page. idk what that means, but i laugh] this song is really really catchy. and i think it's just about a guy who really loves a girl. and will always protect her. how charming.

    General CommentThis song is, to say the least, epic.

    In my opinion, it's the best love song ever written.

    I remember the first time I listened to it, I cried...and the acoustic version still makes me tear up a little.

    As for the song's meaning, it's simply about a boy who loves a girl so much that he would swim the ocean for her. But of course, as with any Metro Station song, there's a little innuendo laced in there with him desperate for her...shall we say...body?

    Any way around, excellent song. I love you Metro Station!
