Ocean Lyrics - Ocean's Song Lyrics





Ocean's love of all styles of music lead her to write lyrics ranging
from streetwise cheekiness and satire to haunting passion, and from surly 
depths to storylines about fantasy worlds of mythical splendor. Here are the lyrics to three of Ocean's songs. If you are particularly interested in the lyrics of any other songs, they are all included in the liner notes of her debut CD, 
Mermaid Music and will also be included in her upcoming CD, Ocean.
 

7. SNAKE-HIPS ©2003, words and music by Ocean 

COOL 
THE WAY HE MOVES 
THE WAY HE GROOVES 
THE WAY HE 
IT'S SO 

SMOOTHE 
THE WAY HE COILS 
HIS ARMS AROUND 
ME, BABY 
HE'S SO 

SLOW 
SO SERPENTINE 
A WINDING DREAM 
WHEN HE GETS NEAR ME 


SWOON 
SO HYPNOTIZED 
INSIDE HIS EYES 
MY BRIDGE OF SIGHS 
SO 

SO SLOW AND COOL 
HE BREAKS ALL THE RULES 
SO SUBTLE AND SMOOTHE 
PRIMITIVE AND CRUDE 
IN-

CLINE 
ALL SWAY AND LEAN 
SO SLITHERY 
IN SEQUENCE 
HARMO-

NY 
STRANGE AND INTENSE 
PATTERNS AND SHAPES 
LINES OF DESIGNS 
SINEW-


CURVES OF DESIRE 
SO SYRUPY 
SCALES REGISTER 
SO HEA-

VY 
GLIDE OVER ME 
SO VIPERY 
SHIMMER AND SHEEN 
SO 

SO SLOW AND COOL 
YOU BREAK ALL THE RULES 
SO SUBTLE AND SMOOTHE 
PRIMITIVE AND CRUDE 
AHHH
ONE 

KISS 
DANGEROUSNESS 
OFFERS AN END 
AS SWEET AS THIS 
HIS 

SLINK 
SEDUCING ME 
MAGNETIZE 
GREAT LETHARGY 
TO 

SLIDE 
TO TAKE A RIDE 
ON MYSTERY 
METALLIC GLIDE 
HE 

HAS 
SENSUOUSNESS 
BARE ELEGANCE 
SNAKE-HIPS 
CURVI- 

SO SLOW AND COOL 
HE BREAKS ALL THE RULES 
SO SUBTLE AND SMOOTHE 
PRIMITIVE AND CRUDE 
AHHH 



8. SIREN SONG © 2003, words and music by Ocean 

THERE ARE LEGENDS FROM DAYS OF OLD 
TALES THAT SALTY MARINERS TOLD 
OF HOW SEAFARERS WHO LOST THEIR WAY 
WERE ENTRANCED AND LURED ASTRAY 
ENTICED BY THE SPARKLING LIGHT 
OF MOONBEAMS DANCING ON THE WAVES 
OF EMERALD SEAS AND INDIGO SKIES 
BY BEAUTY WERE ENSLAVED 
LULLED BY THE RHYTHM OF THE SEA 
APPARITION, ILLUSIONS, REVERIE 
THEY HEARD A HAUNTING MELODY 
FANTASY, IMAGE, DREAM, ECSTASY 

I'LL GIVE YOU ALL THAT LOVING CAN BRING 
PLEASURE FOR PLEASURE IS ALL I SING 
LOVING, SO WILLING, BECKON TO ME 
GOLDEN HORIZONS WILL SET YOU FREE 
CRAVING FOR PARADISE SHINES IN YOUR EYES 
STARDUST AND MOONBEAMS FLOAT IN THE SKIES 
GARDEN OF BEAUTY, EVERY DELIGHT 
RADIANT SPLENDOUR LIGHTS UP THE NIGHT 
TROPICAL ISLAND, VISIONS TO SEE 
LONGING FOR PASSION, OUR FANTASY 
COME DREAM WITH ME, YOUR WHOLE LIFE LONG 
GIVE YOUR SOUL TO THE SIREN'S SONG 
YEARNING FOR PASSION, DEEP IN YOUR SOUL 
ENRAPTURED BY THE BRIGHT MOONGLOW 
GLISTENING STARLIGHT RIDES ON THE WAVES 
BEAUTY MAKES A WILLING SLAVE 
PARADISE PROMISED IN EVERY KISS 
CALLS YOU TO ETERNAL BLISS 
IN YOUR HEART YOU ALWAYS KNEW 
SWEET DESTINY WOULD CALL TO YOU 

HIDDEN OASIS LOST IN THE SEA 
OUR PRIVATE EDEN, OUR FANTASY 
WONDROUS VISIONS SHINES IN YOUR EYES 
BEAUTIFUL DREAMS, OUR OWN MIRAGE 

CLOSE YOUR EYES 
DREAM OF THE SEA 
TAKE MY HAND 
AND FOLLOW ME 

SOME SAY THEY WERE HELD UNDER A SPELL 
BUT AS FAR AS WE CAN TELL 
THEY FOLLOWED THE FATES MOST WILLINGLY 
AND VANISHED IN SPLENDID PURSUIT OF DREAMS 
THEY LEFT ALL ELSE BEHIND A TOMB 
AND GAVE THEIR SOULS TO RAPTURE, OR DOOM 
AND EVEN AGAINST FRIGHTENING ODDS 
THEY SOUGHT TO LIVE, OR DIE, AS GODS 

ENCHANTMENT, DESIRE, REFUGE OF DREAMS 
SHOWS YOU HOW THE NIGHT SEA GLEAMS 
YIELD TO THE SPLENDOUR OF THE NIGHT 
HYPNOTIZED BY THE SHIMMERING LIGHT 
LUMINOUS STARS FLOAT ON THE WAVES 
SAVE YOU FROM A WATERY GRAVE 
SIREN SONG DOES MAGICAL THINGS 
ALWAYS TURNS WINTER INTO SPRING 

WANTON DESIRE NEVER TO TAME 
BRIGHT ILLUSION CALLS YOUR NAME 
ANSWERS YOUR EVERY NEED 
WITH BLISSFUL FANTASY 

AND SO, SEDUCED BY WHAT THEY'D SEEN 
ENTRANCED, BELIEVED SHE WAS NOT A DREAM 
A FAIR SEA MAIDEN WITH TANGLED HAIR 
THEY WILLINGLY FOLLOWED TO HER LAIR 
AND THEY WERE NEVER SEEN AGAIN 
AT LEAST, NOT IN THE WORLD OF MEN 
DID THEY FIND SWEET PARADISE ? 
OR A WATERY DEATH, AS COLD AS ICE?
WE HOPE THEY FOUND THE BETTER HOME 
THAT ONLY THEIR FONDEST DREAMS HAD KNOWN 
SO, WHEN YOU WATCH HORIZONS OF SKY AND SEA 
REMEMBER HEROES WHO FOLLOWED ROMANCE 
AND WERE, 
     AT LAST, 
             SET FREE 




10. EMPTY QUARTER, (AR-RUB AH-HALI) © 2003, words and music by Ocean 

SLOW WALK AT MIDNIGHT, IN A LUNAR PHASE 
UNEARTHLY STILLNESS, HALCYON GLAZE 
PURE DESOLATION, MEANDERING PACE 
EMPTY QUARTER'S ETERNAL EMBRACE 

SINEWY WASTELAND, NOMADIC STRAYS 
ROVING HORIZON, THE DESERT ENSLAVES 

PONDEROUS DREAMING, OPIATIC HAZE 
WINDSWEPT OASES, INCESSANT CRAVES 
BLANK INTUITION, SHADOWY PLANES 
CURVING CRESCENT, AND OCEANLESS WAVES 

MYSTIC INCANTATION, ILLUSION LIES 
UNDER THE ENDLESS, SHELTERING SKY 

UNDULATION, CARAVAN SWAYS 
UNDER AN EYELESS, SPHINXLIKE GAZE 
EMPTY QUARTER, SEERING HEAT 
ISOLATION, LONELINESS COMPLETE 

FASCINATION, SERPENTINE BLADE 
INFATUATION, ROAMING SHADES 
LOOMING SHADOWS, MOONLIGHT FADES 
TO EMPTINESS OF ETERNAL SPACE
