Rocks In the Ocean

Rocks In the Ocean

On a night just like this, in a place far away

He met with a giri in the spring

And something about him just turned her around

As though she were caught on a string

And being so young they held on to each other

To see what the moment might bring

He loved her then in a secretive way

Not showing his care or his need

She stayed beside him and looked to the day

He would somehow begin to be free

In the chill of the night she would hold him and say

This is how they always should be


Rocks in the ocean, waves on the sea

Keep it in mind,

If love comes unsatisfied, don't forget me

Don't forget me


And so he come to depend on her more

Though the lesson was still to be learned,

Taking for granted the gift that she gave

As though it were something he'd earned

And she for her part growing slowly away

From a love that was never returned

Then came the day that he never foresaw

When he woke to find she was gone

He followed her then to the ends of the world

To tell her how much he'd been wrong

But the more he called her, the more she was lost

Leaving only the words of her song


Rocks in the ocean, waves on the sea

Keep it in mind,

If love comes unsatisfied, don't forget me

Don't forget me


He still listens out for her foot on the stair

As he looks for her down through the years

And the friends that he had have all left one by one

For their words weren't reaching his ears

He chooses instead now to wander alone

To a song that only he hears


Rocks in the ocean, waves on the sea

Keep it in mind,

If love comes unsatisfied, don't forget me

Don't forget me
