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?

Chorus

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.

Chorus

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.
