Ocean Woman
Music: Keith Brown / Lyrics: Phil Johnson

Ocean Woman’s got a love like the sea,
Roaring in and out like some giant tide,
So mighty & proud yet so peaceful and free,
Washed my boat of life to sea for a ride.

Everything I’d been in search of throughout my lifetime
Were the riches that you promised to me,
I grew to love you through the calling of time,
As my boat sailed out on your deep blue sea.

Carried me off for some faraway land,
To the Islands of Love I set course by your hand,
And through your will be washed up on the sand.

Ocean Woman, I was charting a course
Unifying all I hoped would soon be,
You gave my boat its motion as your tide was its source
Of my sailing onward through your sea.

This unknown trip was not the first in your lore,
Was I so blind that I could not even see?
A fate you had bestowed on many others before
Was the same that lay in wait for me.

And with the rising of a fiery full moon,
A fierce storm approaches as I sail to my doom,
Laying all in its path, I’ll be feeling it soon.

Fierce winds and raging waters sent my ship heading down
Through the depths to the floor of your sea,
I must say fate was kind for it allowed me my life
And survival of your wrath upon me.

Ocean Woman’s got a love like the sea,
Roaring in and out like some giant tide,
So mighty & proud yet so peaceful and free,
Washed my boat of life to sea for a ride.

Despite illusion and despite trickery,
I will house this deep love for your sea,
Ocean Woman won’t you come back to me?
