A Serious Ocean by Martie Hevia

Original & Alternate Versions:

I asked you to tell me
The story of our lives.
Will it have a happy ending?
Or will I be left to cry?
Watching the credits roll by.
By and by.
Asking why.
Please tell me why.

But, first, I want a serious ocean.
Wait for the fog to roll in.
I want steel blue, steel gray colors,
Blended with muted greens.
Make sure it’s so cold it hurts.
Make sure you mean all your words.
Then hold me close and let me cry.
Before you walk away…
Say good-bye.
Say good-bye.

How could it ever matter,
What other people think.
Why should we concern ourselves,
If they want us to sink or swim.
“He’s with her.” “She’s with him.”
To hell with them.
I’m with you. You’re with me.
Let them see.

I will die when you tell me.
I’m sure it’ll hurt you too.
I know it won’t be easy,
To do what you must do.
To dye my soul forever blue,
In shades of you.
Shades of you.

I asked you once to tell me,
How this love story ends.
But there’s no need for words now,
The ending is in your eyes.
As the tears roll by.
By and by.
Just say good-bye.
Say good-bye.
