0158 I Am [21 January 1998]

Chorus: I am like the ocean,
Lost without end.
I am like the ocean
Forever following love.
I am like the ocean,
Forever longing for the shore
I am like the ocean,
Forever lost without love.

You are my island,
The one anchor in my life.
You forget that I need you
And you walked out the door.

Why must he go? I think to myself.
Was it something I said?
Did I fall too hard,
Too fast for him?


This was perfect for me
He knew what to push,
When to do that thing
He did so well to me.

But as I started to trust,
He slammed me down
Without remorse he left me dry
Like the desert longing for rain.


Bridge: When it seems so perfect for me
The man I love turns me away
And leaves me drifting
Like the never-ending tides.

Chorus: Repeat until end.
