  1. By The Ocean

From the recording Forward Nocturnal Imagination

In cart Not available Out of stock

The ocean has always been a special place for me. Whenever I faced a challenging point in life, the answers always became very clear once I visited the water.

Production was big and fun on this tune. For the drums I used a jingle ring on the high hat to give the groove a bit more shuffle. During the verses group hand claps help drive the tune. Metal percussion replaces the hand claps during the choruses. Guitars are doubled acoustic and electric.

~Enjoy!

Lyrics

Midnight on the sand, big yellow moon reflecting on the water.
Salt air fills my lungs it's doing me good, it's so cold and numb.
Take my boots off so I can better feel, that cold wet sand it makes my heart run.

I was sitting by the ocean. By the ocean, with my mind wide open.
Unloading all the weight I carry into the water.
Reborn with the sun.
Down by the ocean.

Collecting shells and a memory.
Live positive and free is the way I try to be.
If you should stumble or you should fall,
go down by the ocean and let it all wash away.

I was sitting by the ocean. By the ocean, with my mind wide open.
Unloading all the weight I carry into the water.
Reborn with the sun.
Down by the ocean.

Oh yeah, Just waiting for a sign.
That haunting siren call.
I've put in my time, down by the ocean.
