Ocean Album Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

What If I Never Get Over You

It's supposed to hurt, it's a broken heart
But to movin' on is the hardest part
It comes in waves, the letting go
But the memory fades, everybody knows
Everybody knows

What if I'm tryin', but then I close my eyes
And then I'm right back, lost in that last goodbye?
And what if time doesn't do what it's supposed to do?
What if I never get over you?

Maybe months go by, maybe years from now
And I meet someone and it's workin' out
Every now and then, he can see right through
'Cause when I look at him
Yeah, all I see is you

What if I'm tryin', but then I close my eyes
And then I'm right back, lost in that last goodbye?
And what if time doesn't do what it's supposed to do?
What if I never get over you?

Ooh yeah
What if I never get over?
What if I never get closure?
What if I never get back all the wasted words I told ya?
What if it never gets better?
What if this lasts forever and ever and ever?

I'm tryin', but then I close my eyes
And then I'm right back, lost in that last goodbye
And what if time doesn't do what it's supposed to do?
What if I never get over you?
What if I gave you (what if I gave you) everything I got?
What if your love was my one and only shot?
What if I end up with nothing to compare it to
What if I never get over? Oh, if I never get over
What if I never get over you?

What if I never get over you?
Oh, what if I never get over?
Over you

Pictures

Ooh
There's a four by six of a sunset kiss
And one of you laughin' at me catching my first fish
One on Valentine's Day
With the mariachi band at our favorite place

Yeah, we sure looked happy in pictures
The camera doesn't show the way it hurt
No, that ain't the way I remember it happenin'
In between the flashes it was sad, it was tragic
Yeah, we sure looked happy in pictures

There's one on my phone (one on my phone), that I can't erase
But you'd never know by the smile on my face
That inside I was dying, later that night I'd be crying
The last one before "goodbye"

Yeah, we sure looked happy in pictures
The camera doesn't show the way it hurt
No, that ain't the way I remember it happening
In between the flashes it was sad, it was tragic
Yeah, we sure looked happy in pictures

Ooh
No photo evidence, not a single proof
Of all the hell that we went through

But damn, we sure looked happy in pictures
The camera doesn't show the way it hurt
No, that ain't the way I remember it happening
In between the flashes it was sad, it was tragic
Yeah, we sure looked happy in pictures

(So happy)
(So happy in pictures)
Oh, yes we did
Yeah, we sure looked happy in pictures
(So happy)
(So happy in pictures)

Crazy Love

I was lost
Like a broken whiskey bottle in an alley
You should've but you wouldn't leave without me
You took me home

We were wild ones
Burning like that backseat back in '08
And everybody said they wouldn't do it
But they were wrong

And you
You were reckless on that day you took my hand
But you
You could see right through the boy and see a man
And here I stand

Thank God for you
Thank God for us
Thank God for crazy love

Ain't it funny
Have a couple of silly kids could see forever
And looking back, we shouldn't be together
But here we are

Oh, you
You were reckless on that day you took my hand
But you
You could see right through the boy and see a man
And here I stand

Thank God for you
Thank God for us
Thank God for crazy love

Ooh yeah

Oh, and you
You were reckless on that day you took my hand
Oh, but you
You could see right through the boy and see a man
Girl, here I stand

Thank God for you
Thank God for us
Thank God for crazy love
Thank God above
We never gave up
Thank God for crazy love

You Can Do You

Yeah

Suits and boots and bachelorettes
Start filling up the room
Friday night's fresh paychecks
All looking for something to do
Old school Diamond Rio
Ringing out from the band
Regulars and out-of-towners
All yellin', "That's my jam"

You can go hard or take it slow
Whatever floats your boat, so

Go 'head and dance if you want to
Order up another round
We all got something that we're going through
But we ain't gotta worry 'bout it now
Whoa, and it don't matter where you come from
Which side of the county line
We're all here searching for a good time

You can do you, I'ma do me
We all came here for the same thing
We're all living in the land of the free
So you can do you, and I'ma do me
Yeah

Life of the party or a wallflower
Long as you're having fun
Straight on the rocks or a whiskey sour
Or anything under the sun
Different strokes for different folks
We can all agree
No matter where you've been, every now and then
We could all use a drink

So go 'head and dance if you want to
Order up another round
We all got something that we're going through
But we ain't gotta worry 'bout it now
Whoa, and it don't matter where you come from
Which side of the county line
We're all here searching for a good time

So you can do you, I'ma do me
We all came here for the same thing
We're all living in the land of the free
So you can do you, and I'ma do me
Yeah!

Oh, baby

It it makes happy
If it makes you smile
Let's get a little wild

You can do you, and I'ma do me
We all came here for the same thing
We ain't always gotta agree
'Cause we're all living in the land of the free

You can be left
You can lean right
You can go home
Stay all night
You can go up
You can go down
Find someone and spin 'em around
and around, and around
Around, and around, and around, and around, baby

Oh, you can do you
And I'ma do me, yeah
You can do you
I'ma do me
Have a big ball
Oh, no no no no no no no no no

What I'm Leaving For

Keep those lights on
Toys on the front lawn
Disney World trip next summer
Used kit for our little air-drummer
Food on the table
Brand new cradle
For the angel that's coming in a minute
This house and everybody in it

Got my bags packed, got my ticket
Got a heartache to go with it
Baby, kiss me, say you'll miss me
Oh, while we still got time

Take a look at our little paradise
It ain't much but baby, you and I
Picked the right stars, made the right wish
Ain't nothing out there like this
And it kills me that I gotta go
Couldn't do it if I didn't know
That every time I'm walking out that door
You know what I'm leaving for

When I'm out there
I know I'm where
I'm meant to be picking them strings
And getting that small town to sing
On that last turn home
I can hardly wait
To drop my bags, kiss your face
'Cause all I can do is stop and

Take a look at our little paradise
It ain't much but baby, you and I
Picked the right stars, made the right wish
Ain't nothing out there like this
And it kills me that I gotta go
Couldn't do it if I didn't know
That every time I'm walking out that door
You know what I'm leaving for
Ooh-ooh

Oh, got my bags packed, got my ticket
Got a heartache to go with it
Baby, kiss me, say you'll miss me
While we still got time

Take a look at our little paradise
It ain't much but baby, you and I
Picked the right stars, made the right wish
Ooh, ain't nothing out there like this
And it kills me that I gotta go
Couldn't do it if I didn't know
You know that this heart of mine is yours
(You know that this heart is yours)
Oh, and every time I'm walking out that door
You know what I'm leaving for
Mmm-mmm

Be Patient With My Love

Might've done it this time
Might've drank too much wine
Might've said somethin' that I just can't take back
Always push 'til you cry
And I just don't know why
Tell me there's a way to turn around on this way to goodbye

'Cause I'm comin' back, back to my senses
I'm comin' back like holy redemption
I'm comin' back to the man that I was
So, please don't give up
Be patient with my love

No, I never fight fair
But I'm tryin', I swear
Old habits don't break, I heard someone say (someone say)
Ooh, yeah, I could use some Jesus
A little more prayer
But if I could make it to the middle, could you meet me there?

'Cause I'm comin' back, back to my senses
I'm comin' back like holy redemption
I'm comin' back to the man that I was
So, please don't give up
Oh, be patient with my love

Ooh yeah
Be patient with my love
Ooh

I'm comin' back, back to my senses
I'm comin' back like holy redemption
I'm comin' back to the man that I was
So, please don't give up
Don't give up
Just be patient with my love

Ooh yeah
'Cause I'm comin' back to us
I'm comin' back to us
Oh, I'm comin' back to who I was
So, just be patient with my love

Oh
Patient with my love
Oh, I'm comin' back to us

Alright

Mm-hm
I ain't feelin' pretty
What I wanna wear don't fit me
And it's messin' with the way I see myself
My tank is pushin' empty
I'm runnin' low on caffeine
I guess my good day went to someone else

Just when I'm on the edge of cryin'
Babe, you're callin' to remind me, remind me

It's alright, alright, alright, yeah
Breathe in and let it go
This life ain't always perfect
Sometimes it's dominoes
One bad thing leads to another
Baby, there's a shine at the end of the tunnel
No lie, no lie, no lie, yeah
It's alright, alright, alright, yeah

Roll my windows down
Turn that song up loud
Laugh it off and give myself a break

Gray skies try their best to cover up
My sunshine, but not today, not today

It's alright, alright, alright, yeah
Breathe in and let it go
This life ain't always perfect
Sometimes it's dominoes
One bad thing leads to another
Baby, there's a shine at the end of the tunnel
No lie, no lie, no lie, yeah
It's alright, alright, alright, yeah

(Gonna be, gonna be alright)
(Everything's gonna be alright) oh
(Gonna be, gonna be alright)
(Everything's gonna be alright)

Ain't nothin' that a new day can't face
Ain't nothin' that a good love can't shake
Ain't nothin' that the good Lord can't change

Oh, it's alright, alright, alright, yeah
Breathe in and let it go
This life ain't always perfect
But I know it's beautiful
One bad thing leads to another
Baby, there's a shine at the end of the tunnel
No lie, no lie, no lie, yeah
I know it's all gonna be alright, yeah

(Gonna be, gonna be alright)
(Everything's gonna be alright) ooh, alright
(Gonna be, gonna be alright)
(Everything's gonna be alright) I know it's all gonna be alright, yeah
(Gonna be, gonna be alright)
(Everything's gonna be alright) know it's gonna be, know it's gonna be alright
(Gonna be, gonna be alright)
It's alright, alright, alright, yeah

Ooh, alright

Let It Be Love

See the thing about envy and me
Comes out of nowhere, hits so hard I can hardly breathe
In the middle of the night when I need sleep
You see, that's the thing about envy

Yeah the thing about angry and me
I'm strong, then I'm down on my knees
I scream when the silence should speak
You see, that's the thing about angry

The love lifts you up
I know it's hard sometimes to see it, but it does
Oh it's a power that will rise up
A well that never dries up
The one and only feeling you can trust
So let it be first
Let it be us
Let it be love
Let it be love
Let it be love

You see the thing about humility and me
I put myself a little higher than I should be
Forget I'm just one drop in a big ole sea
A little more you, a little less me

The love lifts you up
I know it's hard sometimes to see it, but it does
Oh it's a power that will rise up
A well that never dries up
The one and only feeling you can trust
So let it be first
Let it be us
Let it be love
Let it be love (Let it be love)

When you're tired of the mistakes that you keep making
When you feel your heart is done with all its breaking
And all the second chances you keep taking
Let it be love
It's always enough (It's always enough)

'Cause love lifts you up
I know it's hard sometimes to see it, but it does
Oh it's a power that will rise up
A well that never dries up
The one and only feeling you can trust
So let it be first (So let it be first)
Let it be us
Oh let it be love
'Cause it's always enough
Let it be love
Let it be love (Let it be love)
Let it be love

On A Night Like This

On a night like this
I could fall in love
I could fall in love with you
In this dark so dense
We talk so soft
The way young lovers do

The day's last sight
Turns to cool night's breeze
And this love hangs thick like these willow leaves
I've hid myself away from this
But your silhouette is the cutest kiss

On a night like this
The moon sits still
And the stars are watching too
The way you move
Is a lullaby
And I could fall (I could fall)
In love with you

The day's last sight (day's last sight)
Turns to cool night's breeze
And this love hangs thick like these willow leaves
I've hid myself away from this
But your silhouette is the cutest kiss

Oh
Oh, whoa
Ooh

On a night like this
I could fall in love
I could fall in love with you

Boots

Have some scratches and some holes from rusty nails
Have some dirt and dust from all those broken trails
But you shine 'em up brand new
Girl, like only you could do
Somehow you put this runaway train back on the rails

Yeah, these boots, never walkin' out on you
They ain't got no more running left to do
Whoa, here I am
Whoa, forever your man
These boots, never walkin'
Walkin' out on you

Oh

It's a miracle they found their way to your door
It's like they forgot all the places they been before, oh
Took awhile to find their place
Girl, you know they're here to stay

Yeah, these boots, never walkin' out on you
They ain't got no more running left to do
Whoa, here I am
Whoa, forever your man
Girl, these boots, never walkin'
Walkin' out on you, oh

These boots are never walkin' (no, not this time)
These boots are never walkin' (no, not this time)
These boots are never walkin' out on you

Oh, these boots, never walkin' out on you
Girl, they ain't got no more running left to do
Whoa, here I am
Whoa, forever your man
Girl, these boots, never walkin'
Walkin' out on you (yeah)

Oh, never walkin', baby

The Thing That Wrecks You

You're a passing car
On a one way street
Heading straight through the red lights
Where the midnight and heartbreak meet
You're a bird in flight
To a house in flames
Yeah, you've played every card
But you know you it's a losing game

Yeah, you're running down a darkened road
Where even angels might not go
Some stars have a long glow
Let it pull you like a song you know
It might look like a dream come true
But it only leads you straight into
The thing that wrecks you

If I could change
I'd be good for you
Oh, I hate all the madness
And pain that I've put you through
It's not your fault (it's not your fault)
It's just how I am (it's just how I am)
You're a deer in the headlights
And I'm drivin' as fast as I can (as fast as I can)

Oh, you're running down a darkened road
Where even angels might not go
And your star's got a lonely glow
And I pull you like a song you know
We might look like a dream come true
But it only leads you straight into
The thing that wrecks you (wrecks you)
The thing that wrecks you (wrecks you)
The thing that wrecks you

The thing that wrecks you, wrecks you (ooh)
The thing that wrecks you, wrecks you (wrecks you)
The thing that wrecks you, wrecks you

You're a passing car
On a one way street

(The thing that wrecks you, wrecks you)
(The thing that wrecks you, wrecks you)
(The thing that wrecks you, that wrecks you)
(The thing that wrecks you, that wrecks you) oh yeah

The thing that wrecks you, wrecks you (oh, the thing that wrecks you)
The thing that wrecks you, wrecks you, oh
The thing that wrecks you, wrecks you (wreck)
The thing that wrecks you, wrecks you (wrecks you)
The thing that wrecks you, wrecks you (wrecks you)
The thing that wrecks you, wrecks you (the thing that wrecks you) (wrecks you)

Mansion

Mm

I like nice things
I like diamond rings
I like Malibu beach sights
Sleeping by your side, California king
I like a downtown valet
Dressed up out there in the city
No, I ain't got nothing against things that are pretty

Oh, I don't need a mansion
Sitting high up on a hill
No, I don't need a man that
Shows his love with dollar bills
Don't need a fancy fast car to come and pick up my heart
And ride off into the blue
No, I don't need a mansion
Baby, I just need you
I just need you
I just need you

I want your love
Just the way it is
You ain't gotta dress it up, like Hollywood love
'Cause we already rich
I'm talking no frills, stripped down, real deal
The kind that you can't fake it
Yeah, you can wine and dine me all night
But baby, I'm just saying

Oh, I don't need a mansion
Sitting high up on a hill
No, I don't need a man that
Shows his love with dollar bills
Don't need a fancy fast car to come and pick up my heart
And ride off into the blue
No, I don't need a mansion
Baby, I just need you
I just need you
I just need you

Come on and hold me tight
Give me your affection, your attention
I want you to know tonight
As long as I got you there's nothing missing

No, I don't need a mansion
Sitting high up on a hill
No, I don't need a man that
Shows his love with dollar bills
Don't need a fancy fast car to come and pick up my heart
And ride off into the blue
No, I don't need a mansion
Baby, I just need you, whoa
I just need you
Baby, I just need you

Ocean

How can someone stand so damn close
And feel like they're worlds away?
I can see your sad story eyes
So how do you have no words to say?
All I want is to fall in deeper
Than I've ever been, why won't you let me?
I can handle your heart, so help me

Here you are, next to me
So much beauty at my feet
All I wanna do is swim
But the waves keep crashin' in
No, I'm not afraid to drown
Take me out, take me down
I'm so tired of the shore
Let me in, baby
You're an ocean, beautiful and blue
I wanna swim in you

Like a lighthouse, I've been shinin' bright
Through the dark for the both of us
And, "I've done it outta love" is not enough
But God, how I wish it was
And I don't wanna find out
How much lonely I can take, before you lose me
Baby, look at me and swear you won't lose me

Here you are, next to me
So much beauty at my feet
All I wanna do is swim
But the waves keep crashin' in
No, I'm not afraid to drown
Take me out, take me down
I'm so tired of the shore
Let me in, baby
You're an ocean beautiful and blue
I wanna swim in you

I can't let it go
From moments in your arms
But they come back again
The waves, the waves, the waves, the waves
The waves, the waves, the waves, the waves

Here you are, next to me
So much beauty at my feet
All I wanna do is swim
But the waves keep crashin' in
No, I'm not afraid to drown
Take me out, take me down
I'm so tired of the shore
Let me in, baby
You're an ocean beautiful and blue
I wanna swim in you
