I climbed up a mountain, and looked off the edge
And all of the lives that I never have led
Is one where I stayed with you, across the sea
I wonder do you still think of me
I carry your image always in my head
Folded and yellowed and torn at the edge
And I've look upon it for so many years
Slowly I'm losing your face

[Chorus:]
Oh the ocean rolls us away, away, away
The ocean rolls us away

Sixes and sevens we live on jet planes
And so many faces I don't know the names
So many friends now and none of them mine
Forgotten as soon as we meet
All of these moments are lost in time
You're caught on my head like a thorn on a vine
To forever torment that I wonder why
Do I wish I'd never known you at all

[Chorus:]
Oh the ocean rolls us away, away, away
The ocean rolls us away

Oh the ocean rolls us away, away, away
The ocean rolls us away

The sun and the moon
An ocean of air
So many voices
But nothing is there
The ghost of you asking me why
Why did I leave

[Chorus:]

Oh the ocean rows us away, away, away
The ocean rows us away

Oh the ocean rows us away away away

And I lose your hand through the waves
