LGLG: "The Ocean" Lyrics & Song Background

I grew up in Florida and absolutely loved everything having to do with the beach, the ocean, the lake, waterskiing, fishing, etc, etc. When I first started writing songs several years ago, I decided to do my best Kenny Chesney and Jimmy Buffett impersonation and write 2-3 songs about the ocean / beach. "The Ocean" was one of the songs I wrote - and fit with this album as I wanted to include a slow song on the project. This song is all about disconnecting and connecting.  Disconnecting from life while you are listening to it and connecting with the idea of the relaxing / laid-back / comfortable island living. I love the track and enjoyed having one song that had no background vocals - it's just me and the music! Enjoy!

The Ocean Lyrics Written and Produced by Justin Honaman / John Carrozza Copyright 2010

V1 She whispers and hums in my dreams each night, With blues, greens and greys mixed just right, Tidewaters turn south, head to the isles, Warm sun, sandy beaches on for miles,

Chorus 1 The ocean is calling my name today, Blue waters, white sand, coral reefs, hidden bays, Meets the sky, sun, moon n' stars each day, The ocean is calling my name today,

V2 She roars, foams, swells, and sprays, She takes life away, makes new everyday, Keeps stories, secrets, and legends alive, In rain storms n' fog her markers glow bright,

Chorus 1 The ocean is calling my name today, Blue waters, white sand, coral reefs, hidden bays, Meets the sky, sun, moon n' stars each day, The ocean is calling my name today,

V3 From the beaches of Nevis, St. Kitts and St. Barts, To the reefs of Tobago and bays of St. Martin, Falls of Jamaica and sugar-sand bars, The ocean refreshes my soul and my heart,

Chorus 3 The ocean is calling my name today, Blue waters, white sand, coral reefs, hidden bays, Meets the sky, sun, moon n' stars each day, The ocean is calling my name today.

Tag The ocean is calling my name everyday.
